Re: Water Heater

My WH was tied to the engine (RWC) but failed to heat the water that way so I disconnected that circuit and only use the electric portion works fine on shore power. May be the fault of the RWC temps but I like the simpler system and didn't want the cooling water running around inside the boat.
Gotta check my brand after Maine's post.

No not me. Have not seen one installed and I generaly install the Isotemp unless an owner wants a like for like replacement of a lower quality unit.. BTW the excellent Super Stor has been discontinued... Apparently few are willing to pay for a quality water heater...?

seaner97 For those of us that will nearly never use anything other than the exchanger, I'm less concerned about the element than I am MaineSail's updated experience.

Re: Water Heater

I'm not familiar with the broad spectrum of hot water tanks, but having a user replaceable heating element is absolutely critical. The do burn out eventually, but rarely, and they can die a wrongful death, if you empty your water and run the tank dry.

seaner97 MaineSail, any updates on Quick?

Unfortunately the Kuuma has no option for a magnesium anode. It is a copy of the Seaward but not as well built.

akavishon My old Atwood finally died an ungraceful death, and the replacement short list is a) Isotherm; b) SuperStor; c) Volvo/QL

I've read lots of raving comments on Isotherm, less on SuperStor, and none on Volvo/QL. Does anyone have any experience with this product? It looks great to me, but how does it do in the real world?

TIA, Zoran

tdw One of the boats at our yard was having a QL fitted recently.

Is yours still going, how do like it after this time ?

They look pretty good to me, like the size and shape.

ps - Maine...you asked if they run off engine and I believe the answer is yes.
