  • Replacement Standard tank Water Heater For an Atwood 6G Water Hearter

  • Why Isn't There an Electric Version of RV Tankless Water Heaters
  • The reason there isn't an electric tankless heater for RVs is due to how much amperage that would require and how electricity is a somewhat restricted resource on RVs. This is why all of the water heaters for RVs out there are gas like the Excel Tankless water heater # EX93FR that you referenced.

  • Replacement RV Hot Water Heater Options for a Discontinued Atwood AT96110 Water Heater
  • I have an alternate solution for you, but we do not sell the AT96110. The AT96110 was discontinued.

  • How to Determine if a Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater Can Be Used in a 1998 Trophy Park Model
  • While we do not really deal with Park models and I had a hard time finding information, from what I could find, it looks like they typically use water heater models that are often times found in RV's.

You may want an access door to compete the installation, there are multiple sizes available. -...

  • Do Furrion or Fogatti Tankless RV Water Heaters Use More Propane Than Tank Heaters
  • Excellent question, and tankless water heaters like those from Furrion or Fogatti will actually use less propane than their tank counterparts. The reason for that is the tankless heaters only use propane as the water is being used, so if you hop in for a quick shower, for example, propane will only be used when you have the hot water on. Tank heaters, on the other hand, heat the whole tank of water (and take much longer to heat), so even if you don't use the whole tank of hot water with...

The heater cord requires a 110v outlet, so if your RV electrical system does...

  • How to Determine Fit of Fogatti RV Tankless Water Heater
  • The Foggati tankless water heaters are 100 percent going to be an upgrade over a standard water heater due to their efficiency, as it only uses energy when you turn on the hot water instead of a standard heater that is always using up energy to keep the water hot. And while it is very likely to fit, we don't have any way of knowing fits of a heater in any specific trailer, so you'll just need to take some measurements for either of the Fogatti heaters, which are the following part numbers: -...
