Re: Water Heaters
Probably the 2 main differences between home and boat water heaters
are tank construction and a system for utilizing heat from an engine
to heat the water.
If a water heater has a stainless steel tank and has plumbing allowing
the engine coolant to circulate through the tank, it may work for you
assuming the voltage is 220-240 volts.
I think the ideal replacement for your water heater is a Isotherm
Basic 40 DS (http://www.isotherm.com/en/index.html?fixframe=1&)with
dual circuits for engine coolant allowing you to heat the water with
hot coolant from the engine and/or generator and/or electricity from
shore power or the generator.
