We have just brought our first van and whilst playing with all the bits and testing them the other day we tested the hot water and it took about an hour to get warm so presumed would have to leave it now all the time. It is an old van so probably not the best system.

Is yours gas-only like ours? If it has gas and electric like some of the more modern vans, I think some people put both on at once to heat up quicker. An hour seems like a long time to me. Ours is warm within about 10 minutes, and hot within half an hour.

I think if we had electric water heating I may consider leaving it on all the time, as we are paying for EHU anyway, but as we are paying for gas used, I see little point in wasting it while we are out or asleep.

Ours is an old van. 1991 but is gas and electric. Took about an hour to get even slightly warm on Electric but did get warm quick on gas. Didn't think of using both to get it warmed up quicker.
