2009 Holiday Rambler Traveler...heater..owners manual..generator…

Customer Question
I have a 2009 Holiday...
I have a 2009 Holiday Rambler Traveler. My question is about the hot water heater. From what I understand in reading the owner's manual - I need to have both LP gas AND electris (or generator) to heat the water. Is this true??? In my past campers/travel trailers, I could heat with ONLY LP gas.

Thanks,

Marcus

Hi Marcus,
With the gas/electric water heaters you can use it either way,gas only or electric only.
If you want a faster recovery rate,run it on both at the same time.It will get the water hotter quicker and last longer when using it.

You're sure that I can run it on JUST LP gas?? Do I need to switch anything to do so??

Yes you can run it only on lp or electric,nothing to change.
