Default Replacement for Webasto system in 2013 Roadtrek E-trek?

We love our E-trek, but the Webasto hot water heating/camper heating system has never worked well, even after having it fixed. We would like to remove it and replace it with a different heat source (we don't have propane). Amazon sells a Webasto diesel heating system that doesn't heat water that we would like to try - link here:

If we did this, any ideas on what to do to heat water? Looking for a 12 volt point of use water heater. Has anyone switched from Webasto to any other system successfully?

I opted for separate heating of space using Espar Airtronics D2 and water heating using Espar Hydronic D5 with Isotemp Marine water heater also called calorifier in Europe. If you have time you can scan through my thread https://sprinter-source.com/forums/i...threads/21773/ but is long.

Space heating is great, quiet and efficient, water heating is fast, a little noisy at startup but 15 min of heating keeps water hot for hours. With shore power available Isotemp has built in 750W heater, so it is slower than 5kW from D5 but continous.
