The Propex Malaga 5 Water Storage Heater, This high capacity water storage heater is standard with an efficient gas burner and the additional benefit of a 750 watt electric heating element. This can provide a quick and efficient supply of hot water for showering and washing in touring and motor caravans. The heater may also be installed in boats used exclusively on inland waterways i.e. Class 1 & 2 and subject to finding a satisfactory mounting position.
When used with the adapter plate the Malaga makes an excellent replacement for the Carver Cascade originally fitted to many caravans as well its far east copy the Henry Water Heater.
