Rinnai V65EP is a tankless water heater powered by propane gas and it has been specifically designed for mobile houses only! So, if you are living in your RV or another manufactured house, this is the water heater for you.
Energy Savings & Performance
When talking about efficiency, let’s talk with numbers. Rinnai V65EP is capable of supplying you with 6.6 gallons of hot water per minute and at this flow rate, it has a power outlet of 150k BTU per hour. In terms of percentage, it is 82% energy efficient on average which is not bad at all for a non-condensing unit.
One of the many outstanding features of Rinnai V65EP is its enhanced scale and leak detection. The leak detection mechanism automatically shuts off the unit in case of a leakage in order to avoid any damage to the property. Enhanced scale detection prevents any scale build up so that the unit does not break down because of piling scale and it can be maintained less often. Moreover, there is a temperature lock feature so that there are no accidental temperature changes, especially by children.
Rinnai V65EP is also an eco-friendly device. It complies with the low NOx emission level regulations, sparing you from contributing to global warming.
Design & Installation
Actually, Rinnai V65EP is quite easy to install. Since it is an outdoor unit, it does not need much of a venting system; it will be out in fresh air anyway. However, the prerequisite for the warranty is that it has to be installed by a licensed professional who has attended a Rinnai installation training class in advance. If not, your warranty will be void.
When it comes to its looks, we can say that this unit has a very sleek design. It is only 9 x 14 x 23 inches big and weighs 60 pounds. So, you can easily keep it out of site due to its compact size.
Rinnai V65EP has a pretty impressive warranty period. It is 10 years for the heat exchanger and 5 years for all the other parts. Also, it says on the paperwork that “reasonable” labor will also be covered for one year.

Rinnai V65EP Outdoor Review Wrap Up
The fact that Rinnai V65EP outdoor propane tankless water heater is only for manufactured houses makes it a target for a smaller group because many people do not live in mobile homes. However, when you look on the bright side it is a tailor-made product for you if you are living in such a house. Besides, it is a very good product as well, enough to support a medium-sized two-bathroom house. We highly recommend Rinnai V65EP to those who own mobile houses.
