5 minutes would be awesome. Rentals in Europe typically have LP Truma Combi's that take 20+ minutes to heat their tiny tank. You're all ready to shower then realize you both forgot to turn it on = Truma Trauma

Did you install your unit yourself, or just reroute the glycol lines? I'm wondering if Rixen sells to DIYers.

Our unit came with our van (it was standard in the lamented GWV Legend). Rixen's is a tiny operation, and Jim Rixen is a very nice guy. Give him a call.

When I did the 4-season upgrade, I added around 20 feet or so of extra glycol line, along with a bypass valve so that I could shut it off in the summer. Here are a few pics:
