As with most things, anything worth doing is worth taking time on. I have a 78 Sportsman which I installed this 6 Gal LP/Ele water heater on. Although I wasn't trained to put in the New LP line, I did however install the Electric side of this and have had great hot water ever since! It fit perfectly in the hole created by the existing "American Appliance" water heater. As for heating the water, I give it 30 minutes for a very hot shower, dishes, or shaving! It heats up quickly and easily with a flip of the switch, which is easier than lighting the pilot anyway. I give it 5 Stars for the Usage of this product. Installation instructions were fairly easy to understand, but professional installation I would rcommend, next time.
