Brought reluctantly this one from the local Menards (zip 50320) since I so concerned if this one works. This unit comes with a wired remote, vent out set, and installation/operation book. This unit will need a gas set ([$]) and other material ([$] more). The installation is easy (except for the gas pipe). it need 3/4" water piles and 3/4" gas pipe. Max water temp is 140 degree F. The factory default is 120 degree F. I have this unit set at 125. It has been one month since I used it. It works like a champ. Always has hot water whenever we demand it. Exhaust fan is so quiet and only comes on when hot water is demanded. Space saving is a plus. I'll add photos later. I was told by a friend to check the gas regulation by turn on everything that gas and turn on the water. If the hot water is not there, gas regulation module by the meter need to by replaced by the gas company which is cost about [$]. My is work fine with everything turns on. It costs a bit but it's worth to have.
