I am told that it is not a good idea to use propane and electric at the same time to heat water. Any thoughts? —Jim
It is absolutely fine to use both at the same time to heat water. Both the Suburban and Atwood water heaters are designed to operate this way, and it reduces the the amount of time it takes to refresh the hot water supply.
