You might want to check with a RV place since most RV's have small hot water heaters that don't require electric.

Good idea LaserBillA. The one in my motorhome is not tankless, but it is a compact 5 gal. size, runs on LP gas, and uses a pilot light. I think it would be easy to adapt to a mobile home. You might even find a good used one cheap from a wrecked or junked RV. Mine works great and is 26 years old.

Hello John

Check out this water heater at http://www.sportsmansgui...net/cb/cb.aspx?a=596977.  It runs off of a 5 gallon propane tank and is battery lit.  Says it used two D-cells for ignition.  It looks like it's designed to be just hanged on the wall of your bathroom.  You might also find similar units at other stores.

Good luck,

I'm looking for recommendations for an LP gas tankless hot water heater with sealed combustion approved for use in a mobile home. Preferably one that doesn't require power for ignition or venting. We have a small solar array, but power is precious in the winter here and would rather not run the genny for anything but days of darkness.

Any suggestions?
