Electric Hotwater heater
Why in the world would you heat hot water? ;D
Anyhow, I looked at those and didn’t think the payback was worth it. As well as losing your anode rod.
The furnace is what uses propane in your pup, not as much for the water heater or stove.
On my new HTT, I went from June to October before I had to fill the first propane tank.

It would take us a long time to use $100 worth of propane to cover the cost of the conversion! The water heater uses so little propane that it’s a non-starter in my book. Plus, I don’t want to lose the anode rod protection. I’ve seen too many times what that rod looks like at the end of a season!

Installed the camco Hybrid Heat rod. Easy install. Got it on eBay for about $90. Doing this was cheaper than getting new propane fixtures IMHO. Moved anode rod to high pressure relief valve. Move relief valve to a T on the back. It’s a mod that requires a Little work but didn’t like getting rid of anode rod.
