Tankless Water Heater

Say goodbye to quick, military-style showers, refilling your tank, and waiting for the hot water to recover. This revolutionary design replaces your outdated tank heater and gives you the luxury of taking back-to-back showers, washing dishes, and running a load of laundry all at once. Unlike traditional tank heaters that require constant energy to keep your water hot, this tankless, propane-fueled water heater only uses energy when you turn on your faucet or shower, providing the ultimate efficiency at a campground or off-the-grid. The endless, on-demand hot water has no recovery time and is perfect if you're on the road full-time or traveling with a large group.


Relaxing Showers without Scalding or Freezing

Vortex Pic

Has your warm and relaxing shower ever been interrupted by a cruel burst of ice-cold water? Perhaps you've been the victim of a scorching surge of hot water that scalds you and sends you dancing out of harm's way. Either way, it's the worst, but those days are over. Furrion's vortex technology is designed to eliminate those dreaded hot and cold water fluctuations by consistently mixing hot and cold water together to reach your desired temperature, ensuring those warm, comfortable showers.


Safety First

This state-of-the-art technology is equipped with built-in safety measures to ensure you, your family, and your RV stay out of harm's way.


Its dual temperature sensors automatically shut off power if the water temperature exceeds 149 F, preventing the unit from overheating while also reducing the risk of hot water scalding. The unit also has a flame monitoring feature that cuts off the gas supply if the flame goes out to prevent gas from leaking inside your RV and a built-in safety valve that allows pressure to vent at 87 psi to prevent excess pressure and heat build-up.

Review from a similar Furrion Tankless in RV Water Heaters


This water heater was a great choice. It provides all the hot water a person wants while taking a shower or whatever you want. I removed my old 6-gallon water heater and installed this water heater myself. It only took a couple of hours to install. I purchased two flex water lines from Home Depot to hook up the water lines. I did this so I would not have to cut and reroute the existing water lines. The gas line was long enough to where I could screw it onto the water heater. I installed the thermostat on the bathroom wall. It took me about an hour to install. I placed it near the shower so it would be easy to control.
We were constantly running out of hot water with the 6-gallon tank. With this tankless heater my wife can take a "wonderful" shower and I don't get yelled at because she ran out of hot water. We used it all s
last summer almost every weekend and a several weeks.
The only problem I have had is that when we use the shower handheld shower head when taking a shower and reduce the water flow, the water heater shuts off. Then when the hot water flow is restarted, there will be a rush of cooler water. That causes a little problem. When this happens it's nice that the hot water returns within seconds.
Overall, we have had no major problems using the water heater. It works very well. I have had people tell me that this tankless water heater uses more gas than the 6-gallon water heater, but I have not seen that.
Over all it's a great product.

Review from a similar Furrion Tankless in RV Water Heaters


5 stars for etrailer and Will specifically. The first unit we got was a lemon. After replacing the motherboard that furrion sent us under warranty it still wasn’t working properly. Contacting furrion was pointless. They didn’t have any replacements in stock so with them we were out of luck. Thank God we purchased from etrailer! Will (who is literally the best customer service rep I’ve ever dealt with from any company) helped us out immediately. He sent us a replacement almost overnight along with a prepaid shipping return label for the lemon. This new one worked like a champ.

The few cons I will say I’ve encountered with this water heater... sometimes it has a mind of its own and the temperature will just climb all the way up to 124 and then come back down even though it’s set at 95. I have no idea why it does this, fortunately it doesn’t happen very often. I cannot get a lukewarm shower very easily, if I turn on the cold water to cool it off it either makes the hot water heat up more to compensate or completely turns off the hot water. That’s kinda annoying. Sometimes it won’t even do 95, it starts at like 102 or higher, I’m thinking it’s bc it’s summer and the ground water is just too warm? Idk but that’s kinda frustrating too. Sometimes it’s hot out and you don’t want a hot shower but not a freezing one either, somewhere in the middle is ideal and on those days it’s hard to get the right temperature. Another issue is a design flaw so that when It rains, water gets in the exhaust hole and it will prevent the water heater from turning on. My husband put duct tape over it to create a flap which looks [bad] but works well. Haven’t had a problem since. Furrion would do well to create a flap for the exhaust hole to prevent this issue. Other than that, it does heat on demand as it should and keeps the temperature well. I love having endless hot water in the shower, especially since we have multiple people showering daily. Because it works on low pressure we have no need to install a separate pressure regulator as many have to do with the other brands available. We’ve never had an issue with it working no matter what water pressure we have.

Overall I would definitely recommend this one. It can operate on lower pressure than the other ones out there and is more powerful. The control monitor is perfect too. We placed ours in the bathroom by the shower since we knew that would be the only time We’d want to adjust the water temp. It works well, has advantages over the others on the market and is a little cheaper to boot.


Comments
Thank you for your review. The hot water heather has a default temperature of 115 F which is why it gets hotter initially.

well worth the money. endless hot water. no propane waste when away from home. If you want to take showers and wash clothes and wash dishes like a boss, get this.

Review from a similar Furrion Tankless in RV Water Heaters


This water heater is great. It saves gas by not having a static tank to keep hot all the time and we get to take hot showers without running out of hot water. The only problem I had was I got stuck with a 16" wide door with no option to buy the 18" wide door I needed to install the new water heater. I had to order the proper door directly from furrion at an additional expense.

Review from a similar Furrion Tankless in RV Water Heaters


Was very easy to use. I installed it in my daughters Tiny house. Hooked up water, gas and power. It came to life immediately and started making hot water. I had a question about under support of unit and Etrailer staff answered it quickly. very happy

Review from a similar Furrion Tankless in RV Water Heaters


Once I finally got it installed it works perfectly. It's not a direct replacement for a suburban 12 gallon hot water heater. It takes a lot of modification to the hole that the old one came out of for this one to fit correctly and cover up the old hole.




by:

Review from a similar Furrion Tankless in RV Water Heaters


Super fast delivery. Install took about 6 hours. Be prepared to frame in existing hole location as the new tankless WH is much smaller than the old 12 gallon electric/gas one. Thankfully, the new 18”x18” access door/panel covered everything. It would probably be a good idea to put a piece of sheet metal with lots of silicone caulking over the hole leaving a cutout for the new heater to slip right in, this will provide a nice water tight seal. The Furrion FR68SR seems to work as promised, we’ll see after some usage.

  • Recommended Replacement Water Heater For an Atwood G6A-7 on a 2013 Jayco Jay Pop Up Camper
    I recommend upgrading to a Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR48SR. This will give you hot water when you need it and will save propane as rather than the tank constantly being on and hot all the time you only run when you need hot water. You will also not have to deal with lighting the pilot light that you have with your Atwood unit. You will need to make modifications to the gas and water lines but I feel it is much better to upgrade when you have to replace. The lifespan on a tankless...

  • Recommended Replacement For An Atwood GC6AA-10E RV Water Heater
    Yes the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater - Gas - Automatic Pilot - 60,000 BTU - 16" x 18" Door # FR48SR is a great replacement for an Atwood GC6AA-10E. It does have slightly smaller dimensions so your cutout hole will need a little bit of alteration to close in the gap but the performance boost is well worth it. The on-demand hot water and ability to set the temperature to a specific degree instead of the old fashioned arrow knob will make camping much more enjoyable. The # FR48SR has...

  • How Much Propane Does the Furrion Tankless Hot Water Heater Use
    A 20lb tank of propane will provide @ 432000 BTU hours and a water heater typically uses around 8800 BTU to heat a 6 gallon tank of water. If you used 1 tank of water for each showers, that's about 50 showers off a 20-lb propane tank. You'll need to compare your specific hot water heater and the size of your propane supply to get an exact number but it's generally around 2% of the total supply. The Furrion Tankless Water Heater # FR48SR uses between 13,000 - 60,000 Btu per hour depending...

  • Tankless Water Heater to Replace Atwood cg6aa-9e for Motorhome
    Yes the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR48SR will fit in place of the Atwood cg6aa-9e that you have in your motorhome. It won't be a one hundred a direct fit but it will install relatively easy. We also recommend having a pro handle the install of this.

  • What to Do with High Voltage Circuit Ran to Atwood Water Heater When Replacing with Furrion Tankless
    The Furrion water heater part # FR48SR that you referenced does not use a high voltage circuit like the Atwood water heaters used for ignition so you would need to tape up that circuit and not use it. It would be a good idea to maybe get get rid of the circuit altogether.

  • Replacement Water Heater For Atwood 96121 Water Heater
    The Atwood 96121, our part number # AT96121 is no longer available from the manufacturer, however I do have another solution. The Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR48SR is listed as a direct replacement for the Atwood 96121 water heater, and measures 2-5/8" wide, 12-5/8" tall, and 19-1/4" deep. This is a tankless water heater that produces up to 144 gallons of hot water per hour, and will provide endless hot water on demand.

  • Replacement Tankless Water Heater For a 2017 Jayco Redhawk Motorhome With GC6AA-10E Water Heater
    I recommend the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR48SR for your 2017 Jayco Redhawk 26XD. This water heater only requires a 12-5/8" x 12-13/16" cutout so you will have no trouble fitting it in your larger opening. A 18" wide and 16" tall door is included with the water heater so you will be able to cover the entire opening from your previous water heater and door.

  • Does The Furrion Tankless Water Heater Have An Automatic Shut Off For Excessive Gas Pressure
    The safety valve on the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR48SR you referenced is for water pressure. If the pressure reaches 87 psi the unit will vent to prevent excess pressure and heat build-up. This water heater has an automatic shut off for an overcurrent event as well but does not have a shut off for an excessive gas pressure.

  • Is It Safe To Mount The Furrion Tankless Water Heater In a Compartment Above The Propane Tank
    When installing your Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR48SR on your motorhome, there is no required distance that it must be from your on board propane tank. It is important that your onboard propane tank is properly mounted in a well vented area and that it be fire blocked from any appliances or other ignition sources. Most RV manufacturers will have a steel box around the propane tank and vented below to the ground.

  • Mounting Hardware Needed For Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater FR48SR
    Good question, and there is not a kit you purchase, you will just need to make a visit to the local hardware store in order to get the mounting hardware for the Furrion tankless heater: - Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater - 16" x 18" Door # FR48SR What you will need is 1 inch wide butyl tape, and fourteen #8 pan head screws that are at least 1 inch long to mount the heater.

  • Upgrading To A On Demand Water Heater For A 2015 Jayco Elite Travel Trailer
    The only option that I have for you is to upgrade your water heater as currently we no longer carry the Circuit Board 91365 that you need for your Atwood Water Heater GC6AA-10E. The Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR48SR will provide you with unlimited hot water as it does not use a conventual tank. This means that you do not have to worry about running out of hot water as quickly with your current 6 gallon tank. Your current tank uses a cut out that is 12-5/8" tall x 16-1/4" wide....

  • Compatible Tank With The Dometic Atwood G6A-8E Water Heater
    I called and spoke with Dometic, and they confirmed that the G6A-7 water heater tank is not compatible or interchangeable with your current G6A-8E water heater. However, we do carry the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR48SR which is a viable upgrade and replacement solution to your old Dometic G6A-8E. This unit uses gas with an automatic direct-spark pilot, and recovers up to 12 gallons of water per hour for a lasting supply.

  • Recommended Tankless Water Heater to Replace Atwood GC6AA
    A tankless water heater is a great idea to replace your older Atwood GC6AA, and the best option to do so is one from Furrion: - Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR48SR This tankless heater is going to provide you on-demand hot water and saves you a bundle of energy, because it only uses energy when you turn it on, as opposed to the constant energy output needed for water heaters with tanks.

  • Can Atwood RV Water Heater be Replaced with On Demand Tankless Water Heater

  • Tankless RV Water Heater for 16 inch Wide Opening
    Furrion actually has wide door kits for their tankless water heaters like part # FR98SR which is a 60k BTU unit that has the wider 16 inch door kit that you'd need. I attached a review video for more info on this for you to check out as well.

  • How Cold Can it Be for Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater to Function
    The Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater part # FR98SR will work in an ambient temperature down to 32 degrees Fahrenheit. If you will be experiencing freezing temperatures long term then it is recommend to winterize the unit. If the temperature just drops to below freezing overnight though this would not damage the unit. If the water heater is indoors in the cabin there shouldn't be any issue keeping it above 32 degrees.

  • How to Determine if Furrion Water Heater is Correct Replacement for Atwood OD-5001
    It is possible this Furrion unit will work as a replacement for your Atwood OD-5001 but it depends on the cut out space you have, as well as door size. The Atwood had different door sizes available, but from what I can tell (the Atwood water heater has long been discontinued) it measured 12" tall x 12-1/2" wide x 14-1/2" deep. The Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR68SR you asked about measures 12-5/8" tall x 12-13/16" wide x 19-3/16" deep so it would require quite a bit more depth....

  • Replacement For Atwood G6A-8E Water Heater
    Definitely not; if your tank needs replacing the only thing you can do is replace the entire water heater, which isn't ideal but there's nothing else you can do for hot water. The best option for that is tankless, as you not only never have a tank to replace, you also get instant hot water. The Furrion units will fit in the same space as your G6A-8E, and you just need to select the one with the correct size door for your opening: - 16" x 16" Door: Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR98SR -...

  • Replacement Water Heater Recommendation for an Atwood GH6-6E
    For your application I recommend using a Furrion 60,000 Btu Tankless Water Heater. These run on gas (there are some electrical connections for the thermostat) and come with a few different door sizes to match up to different applications: 16" x 16" Door - # FR98SR 16" x 18" Door - # FR48SR 18" x 18" Door - # FR68SR The actual water heater measures 12-5/8" wide x 12-5/8" tall x 19-1/4" deep so if that varies slightly from what you have you'll need to make adjustments to the water heater...

  • Replacement 12V Tankless RV Water Heater Recommendation
    If you can get 120V power to a newer model then it will work (you don't want to try powering 120V with a 12V power source) but in any case we actually carry some 12V tankless water heater options from Furrion that you might be interested in! The base model is part # FR93FR but you can get it with a 16" x 16" door as part # FR98SR or a 16" x 18" door as part # FR48SR. These come with their own wall thermostat control, use gas for heat (rated for 60K Btu), and have an automatic pilot. Attached...
