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 This revolutionary design replaces your outdated tank heater and gives you the luxury of taking back-to-back showers, washing dishes, and running a load of laundry all at once.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

Our water heater went out. Couldn't of found a better one, in my opinion. Heats up quickly. It's a great water heater.



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:

will not buy again. lasted 2 trips. copper pipes disintegrated like they were corroded from the factory. do not recommend



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:

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 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:

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:

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



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:

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



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:

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



by:

Easy installation. Good instructions. Works flawlessly for me.



by:

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



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:

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



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:

Fast delivery, great product.



by:

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



by:

Works flawlessly. Installation was a br eeze.



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

  • 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.

  • What is Difference Between Furrion Tankless Door Sizes
    We have three Furrion access door replacements for their tankless water heaters. We have the 18 by 18 inch part # FR73FR, the 16 by 16 inch # FR43FR, and we have the 16 by 18 inch # FR63FR. For the water heaters that match the door size we have the # FR98SR which has a 16 by 16 inch door, the part # FR68SR with is 18 by 18, and we have the # FR48SR which is 18 by 16. The door size to go with comes down to what will work best on your RV as the rest of the assembly is the exact same.

  • Foggati Tankless Water Heater Recommendation to Replace Atwood G6A-7 Water Heater
    The Fogatti RV Tankless Water Heater # LSB64FR you referenced is more of their base design, and they have a variety of options available for different opening sizes. Since you have a 16"+ opening I recommend using either part # FR48SR which comes with a 16" x 18" door, or part # FR68SR which comes with an 18" x 18" door. These are the same heater that you were looking at, just with different door sizes.

  • Recommended Tankless Water Heater to Replace a Atwood GC6AA-7
    Yes, there is. It is the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater item # FR48SR which is gas only. This tankless hot water heater measures 12-5/8L x 12-13/16W x 19-3/16D so it should fit right into your existing cutout with little to no modifications needed. This is also available in black item # LSB44FR.

  • Recommended Replacement For An Atwood AT96117 RV Water Heater
    You're correct, since Atwood went out of business Dometic has slowly been discontinuing the entire line of water heaters and switching over to their own brand, while other companies have been switching over to tankless designs. The Atwood AT96117 is approximately 12-1/2" tall x 16" wide x 18" deep so the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR48SR would be a great option to cover the old cutout hole and will outperform your current water heater. You will most likely need to frame in the...

  • Recommended Replacement For A Suburban SW6DE Water Heater
    Hey Jarrod, The dimensions I'm seeing for the Suburban SW6DE are showing as 12.69"h x 12.69"w x 19.19"d for the body. The access door will be a bit larger so you'll want to take a quick measurement to see which new size you'll need to fully cover any gaps and make the overall finish nice looking. You'll want to go with a Furrion water heater since they're the best performance-wise and have the least amount of troubleshooting issues. The SW6DE can produce about 10 gallons of hot water per...

  • 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...

    You can replace your old Dometic G6A-8E with the Fogati # LSB44FR which is a 41,800 BTU tankless unit with a black door to match your existing unit. This unit will give you on demand hot water and a wall controller with a digital display that lets you adjust the temperature of the water as needed. This is a great option to allow you to save some space in your coach and get the convenience of hot water without waiting for the tank to heat up. This unit operates off propane gas and has an...

  • Recommended Tankless Water Heater Replacement For An Atwood GC6AA-10E RV Water Heater
    The Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR48SR would be a great replacement choice for your Atwood GC6AA-10E RV water heater. This unit has a BTU rating of 60,000 versus the 8,800 BTU rating of your current water heater. The on-demand hot water and ability to set the temperature to a specific degree instead of the old fashioned arrow knob will make your camping experience much more enjoyable. It comes with an 18" wide x 16" tall door to cover your 18" x 14-3/4" opening. The # FR48SR has...

  • 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...

  • Recommended Replacement For An Atwood G6A-7 RV Water Heater
    At this point you'd be much better off replacing the unit entirely, but newer units are a bit smaller than the prior models so you'll likely need to do a bit of framing to fill in the gaps and properly mount the new unit. Tankless systems are much more efficient and can provide hotter water for much longer than their tanked counterparts. For a bit of perspective the G6A-7 has an 8,800btu rating and will give you roughly 12 galls of hot water per hour. A tankless unit like the Furrion #...

  • 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...

  • Replacement Water Heater For Dometic/Atwood 2C6AA-7 Water Heater
    I recommend replacing your Dometic/Atwood 2C6AA-7 with the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR48SR. This water heater has a 16"x18" door to cover the 12"x16" cutout of your current water heater. The Furrion is tankless which will save you from wasting propane to heat water in your current tank water heater when you are not using it.

    Since RV water heater manufacturers have changed with the times you will have a bit of work to do to get any new water heater to fit correctly. The best option we currently carry is the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR93FR. This water heater is 12-5/8" wide x 12-5/8" tall x 19-1/4" deep so you'll likely need to frame in the cutout hole a bit for this new unit to mount to.

  • Recommended Tankless Water Heater To Replace Atwood GCAA-7E
    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 know you mentioned Fogatti, but I'd recommend a Furrion unit instead. When we...

    Waste valves aren't really trailer year/make/model specific so the year of your trailer wouldn't be a factor. The only thing that's really important is just ensuring that you're choosing the correct size; 3" for black and 1-1/2" for gray. As for replacing the water heater, there's no guide out there that will tell us anything in your trailer so while I do recommend switching over to the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater # FR93FR you'll need to measure your current water heater to find the...

    The Atwood G6A-7 Water Heater is a gas only model. The best option we have for replacement is the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater part # FR48SR which is also gas only. It should fit right into your existing cutout with little to no modifications needed. This is a tankless unit which the industry is transitioning to. The Dometic RV Water Heater part # DMC74FR is a gas and electric model which runs on 120 volts so you'd want to be hooked up to shore power while using it in electric mode.

    RV water heaters like your GC10A-3E # DMC74FR require both gas and electric to function. There is no way to turn one fuel source off and still have the unit produce hot water. The electric side controls the functions of the water heater while the gas is the fuel source for heating the water. However, you could go to the tankless side and getting a Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater - Gas - Automatic Pilot - 60,000 BTU - 18" x 18" Door # FR68SR. Or ther Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater -...
