water heater

Since we are new to this a question. Is the water heater on our Thor Freedom Elite 22FE strictly propane or does it also run off of power? When you are set up at a camping spot do you leave your water heater on all the time or just turn it on shortly before you need to use it. Thanks in advance for any help.

Water Heater Modes of Operation

Although I am not sure about the 22FE model. In most cases they are dual powered running either on propane or electric. If you check the Control panel and it has two switches one marked electric and one gas grouped together then you have dual mode operation. In my case when hooking up to a campground electric service I switch on electric only. When taking showers I then switch on the gas to improve recovery time as both will be heating the water. Even running all the time on gas will not use a lot of propane if you aren't using a lot of hot water.
Hope that helps.

I think yours will be propane only. One of the cost saving “features” of the Freedom Elite line I believe. But no worries, it does not use much propane and heats its water very quickly. I leave mine on while camping but turn it off when travel.

the propane water will heat water quickly, i leave mine off until i need it 10-15 min warm up till needed is fine, but during freezing weather leave it on all the time you don't want it to freeze.
