Expert Answers about RV Water Heaters


  • Atwood GCH6AA-10E Replacement
  • It is possible that we have old answers that point to products we no longer carry but I do have a solution for you. Recently Dometic bought Atwood, and has been discontinuing most of the Atwood branded product, including the GCH6AA-10E. The only replacement for your Atwood is the Dometic # DMC74FR. Like your Atwood, it is 6 gallons, and runs on propane or electric, and has an automatic pilot. Because it is a little smaller in size you will need the Dometic # DMC84FR kit that includes...

  • Water Heater To Replace Atwood Gc6aa/10E
  • The direct replacement for your Atwood Gc6aa/10E water heater has been discontinued. I recommend the Atwood RV Water Heater Item # DMC74FR which only requires a 12-3/4" x 12-3/4" cutout. This is a standard gas and electric, 10,000 BTU water heater which recovers up to 12 gallons of water per hour. Your current Atwood requires a 16" x 12-1/2" cutout. Since the new Atwood cutout is smaller, I recommend using the Water Heater Door Conversion Kit Item # DMC84FR. It is also available in black...

  • 3 Door Options for Furrion Tankless Water Heater
  • There are 3 doors that work with the Furrion tankless water heater. For a 16" x 16" door use # FR43FR For a 16" X 18" door use # FR63FR For a 18" X 18" door use # FR73FR I would choose the smallest door unless I was working with an existing mount from a previous installation.

  • Atwood GC6AA-10E Replacement Recommendation
  • You can install a larger tank but that is all based on the space you have in your camper/RV and whether or not you're willing to possibly cut a bigger cutout hole in the wall of your camper/RV. An in stock alternative to the # DMC74FR would be the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater - Gas - Automatic Pilot - 60,000 BTU Item # FR93FR. It has similar dimensions and can offer a a higher gallon output per hour at a similar cost.

  • Furrion Tankless Water Heater as Replacement for Atwood GC10-2E
  • The rough opening of the Atwood GC10-2E Water heating you are removing is 16" tall X 15-1/2" tall X 20-7/8" deep. The Furrion # FR93FR enclosure measurements (that match the rough opening call) is 12-3/4" wide X 12-3/4" tall X 23-1/2" deep. So you can see that the hole left by the Atwood is much larger than the size of the Furrion. Furrion recommends that your installer use 1.5" thick materials to frame in the new size opening and to place a support between the water heater and the...

  • Replacing the G6A-7 Water Heater with Fogatti RV Tankless Water Heater
  • I suggest you first take some measurements to verify fitment. However, specs available to me show dimensions of, 16" W x 12-1/2" H x 18"D. For the Fogatti RV Water Heater # LSB64FR, overall dimensions are 14-3/8L x 15W x 15D. The access door is 14-15/16" H x 14-15/16" W. Ease of replacement is relative, while this is not a direct remove and replace it is designed to fit most existing water heater compartments and use the existing gas and plumbing lines. If you go this route you will...

  • Replacement For Atwood GC6AA-10E RV Water Heater
  • We do have a water heater that you can use as a replacement for your Atwood GC6AA-10E, but this particular water heater has been discontinued, so you'd need a different option. You'll just need to ensure the heater fits in the same cut out as the 12-1/2" tall x 16" wide x 18" deep Atwood, and the best option for that is from Fogatti, which fits a 13" tall x 13" wide x 17-3/4" deep cut out. These are actually tankless water heaters, which are a huge improvement over the standard heaters...

  • Replacement Atwood GC 10A-3E
  • Many older Atwood water heaters have been discontinued, the most straight forward replacement for yours currently is the Dometic RV Water Heater - Gas and Electric - Automatic Pilot - 120 Volt - 10,000 Btu - Item # DMC74FR. This is a 6 gallon gas/electric like you currently have with an automatic pilot. This uses 120V power and comes with the switch panel to operate it. The Double-Panel On/Off Switch # AT91230 will allow you to power the electric and gas components on and off individually....

Unfortunately it is out of stock with no expected restock date. Instead I recommend the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater - Gas - Automatic Pilot - 60,000 BTU - 16" x 16" Door Item # FR98SR. Its dimensions are 19-3/16" deep x 12-5/8" tall x 12-13/16" wide. It provides 19+ gallons of hot water per hour and has a heating capacity of 13,000 to...

  • Recommended Water Heater To Replace Atwood GC 6AA-10E
  • You have the parts needed right on the money. To replace your Atwood GC 6AA-10E you will indeed need the Dometic # DMC74FR you were looking at, and since it fits an RV cutout that is a bit smaller you will indeed need the Water Heater Door Conversion Kit # DMC84FR. Lastly you will need to have professional install the water heater. I included videos of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.

  • Replacement RV Water Heater for the Atwood GC6AA-10E
  • The correct replacement for your Atwood water heater is going to be the Dometic RV Water Heater # DMC74FR. Like your Atwood this is a 6 gallon water heater. This water heater uses an automatic direct-spark gas pilot and an internal electric heating element to get hot water ready fast. Recovers up to 12 gallons of water per hour.

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • Correct Replacement for Atwood G6A8E Water Heater
  • The correct replacement for an Atwood G6A8E Water Heater has been discontinued. That said, we do still have a replacement option. The Atwood RV Water Heater part # DMC74FR will work as a replacement but the cutout for the unit will be larger than needed and you'll have to run electric to the unit since this one is gas/electric and the one you have now is gas only. In regards to the larger cutout, this can be filled with the Water Heater Door Conversion Kit part # DMC24FR or part # DMC84FR.

  • What Parts Do I Need To Install My New Tankless Water Heater With The Pressure Relief Valve In Back
  • You will use Camco RV Water Heater Temperature and Pressure Relief Valve - 1/2" Valve w/ 4" Probe # CAM10423 and install it on the back outlet of your new tankless water heater such as Fogatti RV Tankless Water Heater - Gas - Automatic Pilot - 41,800 Btu - White # LSB64FR. You will need to consult your local hardware store for the other various fittings and hoses to re-route everything to the back. I have attached installation videos that show the re-routing from the front of the old unit...

  • Comparing Furrion Water Heaters # FR93FR -VS- # FR98SR
  • Yes, the only difference is that the # FR98SR comes with the 16" door. With the # FR93FR you can select one of three doors: small 16" X 16" # FR43FR, medium 16" X 18" # FR63FR, and large 18" X 18" # FR73FR. This will be of benefit to users who need a different door size. I would use Alpha # AL33FJ butyl tape to seal the edges from the heater to the outside wall.

  • What Size Opening is Needed to Install the Fogatti RV Tankless Water Heater
  • The two part numbers you are looking at are the same units. One is the manufacturers (FS06B1) and the other is ours # LSB64FR. When it comes to the opening size that you need to install this hot water heater, we state that you need a 13" wide x 13" tall x 17-3/4" deep because of the minor imperfections in the shape of the hot water heater. The measurements are not perfect as they are in the image, so this way you will be safe if you have the recommended opening size.

The Furrion tankless is 12-5/8" tall so it will fit in your 13" under your drawer. To confirm a fit the other dimensions are 19-3/16" deep x 12-13/16" wide. You can add a door, Replacement Access Door for Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater - 16" x 16" # FR43FR, as long as you aren't using the drawer above.

  • Do the Tankless Hot Water Heaters Come with Stainless Steel Unpainted Doors
  • I may have a solution for you, but we don't have any hot water heaters that have a stainless steel door. However, I don't see any reason that you couldn't paint the door of the Furrion # FR98SR as long as you sanded it down to get the paint off of it and made sure not to seal up the vents. With that said, if you're looking for a black water heater you could potentially use the Fogatti RV Tankless Water Heater - Gas - Automatic Pilot - 41,800 Btu - Black # LSB44FR, which is a great alternative....

  • Recommended Replacement For An Atwood G6A-8E RV Water Heater

It is 12-5/8" L x 12-13/16" W x 19-3/16" D so you'll need to make slight alterations to your cutout hole to fill in the gap but the performance output of this unit will be worth the work.

  • Tankless Water Heater to Replace Atwood GC6AA-10E
  • So long as you have the appropriate cut out size, you can replace your Atwood GC6AA-10E with the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR93FR. The Atwood heater measures 12-1/2" tall x 16" wide x 18" deep while the Furrion measures 12-5/8" tall x 12-13/16" wide x 19-3/16" deep, so it is a bit taller and has more depth, so you'll want to confirm you have that amount of space. If so, the Furrion will be a fit for you, and you can add a door as well, the 16" x 16" # FR43FR.

  • Are There Check Valves Needed When Installing the Fogatti RV Tankless Water Heater

As far as check valves go, you'll need to use the Camco RV Water Heater Temperature and Pressure Relief Valve part # CAM10423 on the water outlet but that's about it.

  • Best Way to Determine Fit of Tankless Water Heater in 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Really the best way to determine the fit of a tankless water heater in your 5th wheel is by the size of the cut out you have.
