Go Tankless or Go Home

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 This revolutionary design replaces your outdated tank heater and gives you the luxury of taking back-to-back showers, washing dishes, and running a load of laundry all at once.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.


Anti-Freeze Control Board

This tankless water heater features a control board to keep itself warm when temperatures drop. Freezing water can damage the unit, so an internal thermostat monitors water temperature and will turn the heat on automatically when it gets too cold. This feature will only work if the water heater is receiving power and gas. You will need to remember to winterize the water heater before storage over the winter.

This unit is amazing, the water become hot in few second. really quiet and easy to install. Be carefull that you have enough water pressure and flow when using with water pump. Open the hot water side and add cold water without reducing the hot side otherwize the unit may shutdown. Instead, lower the unit target temperature and add less cold water. I'm really happy with this unit. Compared to the smaller unit like the Fogatti, this one suit well for cold input water. Fogatti sell their unit showing 2.2 GPM however this is true for input water temperature around 70 deg F, here in Canada our water temperature is more around 30 deg F. I have tested this Furrion unit with a shower and two faucet and I never lack hot water. I really appreciated the fact that three door size is available. I retrofited my Atwood 6gal with this unit using the 16x18 door. Everything worked well. I painted the door and door frame to match as close as possible my RV color.



by:

We went with the Furion unit when we learned that parts were no longer available for our 20 yr. old Fleetwood. No RV repair shops will work on older models these days so I had to do the installation myself.
We are extremely happy with the quality and unlimited supply of hot water which is unheard of with traditional rv hot water tanks.



by:

We have plenty of hot water. As we do a lot of dishes,long showers. Very happy with this product.



by:

It is nice to hav hot water on demand and not having to worry about running out when you are taking a shower. Don’t have to worry about a water heater tank leaking.



by:

Great help and fast delivery! Hard to beat ordering from etrailer.com! Thank you!



by:

Great product and Neil at Etrailer provided excellent service! This company always provides quality products and customer service.



by:

Of all the upgrades we have made to out fifth wheel Rv ( grand design reflection) this is by far the best. Installed this tankless water myself in just a couple of hours, in fact it took me longer to determine where I wanted to mount the controller than it took

me to install the water heater. I did have one leak after install but took care of that really easy. I would definitely recommend a tankless water heater especially the furrion. Not familiar with others but this one is excellent.



by:

We decided to go tankless when our atwood began leaking. Installing this unit was straight forward, although I did get hung up on the swap from 110 to 12v. After looking at installation docs for the old water heater, I discovered that the propane/electric selector switch in my bathroom branched off of the 12v system, and wired directly into the control system of the old unit. The heating element was the only component actually using 110. I ended up wiring this unit into the propane selector switch. This gives me a quick way to kill power if needed. Other than this hiccup, installation was easy. It is working like charm, and we are enjoying normal shower times again.



by:

Great water heater! Etrailer did a fantastic job when the first unit I ordered was defective. They got a new one to me in a timely way.

After a year this has been a great water heater. It has a little delay that you have to get used to. The advantages out weigh the adjustment.



by:

This thing works awesome!!! Heats up quickly, it's quiet...I really am happy I put this in. Install was easy!



by:

Smaller than the Atwood 6 gallon that it replaced and way more hot water. Not to difficult to install.



by:

When I placed my order I was told there was 1 in stock and my sales rep confirmed with the warehouse that yes there’s 1.
I was notified later that delivery was going to be delayed since “the 1” was sold and we had to wait for the next shipment… it happens but it sucked.
When it arrived the box had a gouge in it. No damage to the unit. Installation was easy. Made a simple grid base to raise the new unit to the height I needed. I previously upgraded my camper with PEX, so a few new fittings and it was up and running. Since purchasing, the unit has operated flawlessly. I won’t go back to a “tank” heater.
ETRAILER.com had a good price and they did deliver in a reasonable amount of time.
Will buy Furrion and will shop etrailer.com



by:

The unit was pretty easy to install. It has worked flawlessly for us. It is a joy not to worry about running out of hot water.



by:

Works great just take a few minutes longer to get hot water but I don’t run out of hot water now.



by:

Easy installation. Good instructions. Works flawlessly for me.



by:

Absolutely amazing! Great instructions, took about 3 hours with a few retrofits for water and gas lines. Well designed in every way and HOT water, BOOM! Love it, L



by:

Quick shipping and one-time. Easy set-up but be careful about freezing temps. Works great.



by:

Fast delivery, great product.



by:

Very fast shipping got exactly what I needed and got it installed in 1 day



by:

At this point I have nothing positive to say about this company or their products.



by:

So glad we added this to our travel trailer! Works great! We're setup in a permanent space, so we get endless showers with this. Well worth the money spent. Thank you!



by:

I have had this unit for a year, it was easy to install and has performed trouble free ever since, thanks for your follow up



by:

Works flawlessly. Installation was a br eeze.



by:

Wow, shipped early

Works great. Was easy to install.

    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...

    I spoke with Furrion about your Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR48SR and they recommended using distilled white vinegar to sanitize the system.

  • 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.

  • Winterizing Instructions For The Furrion Tankless Water Heater
    In the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR48SR it lists that a non-toxic antifreeze solution can be ran through the system to winterize it and to plan for an additional 1L of antifreeze to fill the water heater's pipes. When winter ends you'll need to thoroughly flush the water heater with clean water and drain water out through the drain plug several times to ensure that all of the antifreeze makes it's way out of the system.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Replacement for Atwood GC10A-4E Water Heater
    I recommend using the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater part # FR68SR to replace an Atwood GC10A-4E Water Heater. I have verified that the cutout dimensions will not need to be enlarged and the door on the outside will cover everything. The only thing is that it only comes with a white door so you might want to pick up a can of spray paint if color is that important. We don't have any others with a black door that will fit well.

  • Furrion Tankless Water Heater to Replace Dometic
    Each of the Furrion tankless water heaters measure 12-5/8" wide x 12-5/8" tall x 19-1/4" deep, so that is the size the compartment needs to be. As for the door, there may be trimming needed, depending on the size of the door you have now and the heater you get. Generally some type of trimming is needed as the doors on different models aren't universal sizes. So you need to measure your current door size and go with the Furrion heater that has the closest dimensions. - 16" x 16" Door: Furrion...

  • 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....

    I'd be happy to help! For a tankless water heater to replace your discontinued GC6AA-7E I recommend one of the Furrion options, but you'll need to confirm the size of the cutout in your trailer to pick the correct one. The Furrion # FR98SR has a 16" x 16" door which should be big enough to fill your cutout, but if you have a larger cutout you can use the # FR48SR instead which has a larger 16" x 18" door.

    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.

  • Are There Replacement Propane Regulators Available For An Atwood RV Water Heater
    Atwood was bought out years ago so replacement parts are pretty much completely non-existent at this point. You may be able to find something that will work secondhand or if you talk to a gas worker but your options are going to be pretty limited and require a bit of redneck engineering. Unfortunately as time goes on more and more manufacturers are switching to just solely tankless options so you will eventually reach a point where that is the only option. When you do reach that point...
