Wichita, Kansas, January 23, 2019 — Suburban, a division of Airxcel, has announced a new line of six-gallon RV water heaters for the aftermarket designed for new water heater installations and to replace existing water heater models with aluminum storage tanks.
The water heater fits in the same cutout as a six-gallon Atwood/Dometic-style water heater but is manufactured with a porcelain-lined steel tank that, with the use of an anode rod, is expected to have a longer life than aluminum tank models.
With 10,000 BTU/h of LP gas, the heater provides a fast recovery time which, combined with the optional 120 VAC 1440 W Incoloy electric element, make the recovery rate faster.
“Larger recovery rate means less waiting time for more hot water,” said Mitch Cornelius, Product Manager for Suburban Water Heaters. “Plus, by using Flue Tube Baffles, which is an industry exclusive, we are actually able to transfer more heat to the water in the tank, further enhancing the recovery rate.”
The Suburban Advantage fits into the same cut-out as the
Atwood/Dometic so no modifications are required, making replacing it easy.
