    really?we dont know.its never worked and we've so far,no got around to having it looked at.we know its over 25 years old so we doubted that the parts could be sourced.
    i have found the propex 10 litre elec only for 190.00 so,if we do sort it it would probably be that one.however a tankless one could be good but havnt seen a reasonably priced indoor one yet.:Sad:

    You definitely can't run a tankless shower in a MH. To heat the water as it's passing the element requires too much power even on a hook-up. A fairly poor domestic version uses 9kW: that takes around 40 amps. One that you would enjoy using takes 12kW = 52 amps. The very best EHU will supply 16 amps as long as the site isn't busy and probably half that if it is.

    Depends a bit on your expectations. We coped for years with a 7.2kW shower that was admittedly weedy, but probably no worse than most caravan/motorhome showers. Even that though will draw over 30 amps so way beyond a typical hook-up.

    I think a 3.5kW electric shower would be significantly worse than a stored water gas fired system.
