Engine Heat Exchange

The engine heat exchanger allows you to heat the tank water as you drive so that the water will be ready for you when you reach your destination. It hooks up to your engine's coolant system, and transfers engine heat to the water heater. This heat is automatically transferred when the RV's engine is running. No switch is required for activation. The double-walled tubing used in this system prevents engine coolant from contaminating your fresh water.


Because the pilot light can only be lit when the vehicle stops, tank water is usually heated after you reach your destination. Doing so can take up to 30 minutes. Not only does the heat exchanger on this water heater help to heat your water faster, but it also conserves gas. A typical water heater that uses propane alone requires 27-percent more gas to heat the full tank by itself once the destination is reached.

Video Transcript for Review of Atwood RV Water Heaters - Standard Water Heater w Heat Exchange - AT96136

Today we'll be taking a look at the Atwood RV Water Heater with heat exchange. This is going to help you to have hot water whenever you get to your destination, since it's going to actually use the heat from your radiator system to heat up your water tank, instead of just relying on your propane gas. That's going to save you a lot of time and a lot of effort, as well as also save you some on your propane gas, since that water will be ready to go once you get to your destination. And then you won't have to worry about using as much propane.It's actually rated to reduce our propane usage by up to 27%. So it's going to save that and then also save some energy from having to also use any, or as much power. This has a six gallon tank and it produces up to 12 gallons of hot water per hour.

That heat exchange connects to our radiator system and then as we're driving, it's going to pump that system through and help to get everything heated up.It does have a double tube construction, so we don't have to worry about any contamination between our engine fluids contaminating the water in our tank. But it just helps to save energy, save resources, and also have a nice hot shower whenever we get to our campsite or wherever we're heading to. It also has an automatic DSI gas pilot, so it's going to heat our water, once we reach that destination. If you need to have more water heated up, it'll get you going there so you'll have both options there, of heating it through your radiator or through that gas connection.We'll have a switch for that, so we can turn on our gas, so we only have it going whenever we need it. You'll want to have that only running of course, whenever you're not moving.

And then, we also get some corner brackets that come with the kit. That's going to relight automatically until that gets shut off, so it'll keep that heater rolling until we turn the switch off. To open this up, just turn that little keeper, open up our door and you can see all our components inside. So it's easy to service our pilot light here and all the other components. Just attach this with those clips at the bottom, so we can get access to all those parts.It has an aluminum clad tank, so that's going to reduce calcium buildup and also limit any corrosion on the inside and it eliminates the need for an anode rod.

It's going to be thermostatically controlled to prevent any overheating and it also has a high temperature limit switch, to automatically shut off the unit if it gets too warm. It has a combustion shutter, which adjusts the oxygen level, so the pilot light can work even at high altitudes. And it's externally sealed to help keep the unit clean.We'll have a drain plug, which is nylon and that's going to help, again, to prevent rust. The access door is included and again, makes it easy to service as our parts. We can hook this up and test it before the unit is sealed.

We close that back up. We're just going to pull that out and then turn and fold it down. We'll still have a little window to be able to see our pilot light, to make sure that that's on. We turn it around to the back, we'll have our two connections. This will be for our water and that's going to be a half inch NTP connection and then we'll have our gas connection and that is a three eighth, outer diameter gas line.As far as the specs with this, it has a heating capacity of 8800 BTUs and again, a six gallon capacity. It weighs about 19 pounds. It takes 12 volt power. As far as the measurements, with our door, it's 18 inches wide and then 14 inches tall. The unit will measure 18 inches deep, going from the back of our mounting point to the back of our connections there. And then 16 inches wide and 12 and a half inches tall. Flip around the other side and make sure you see that.You always want to give yourself a little bit of wiggle room, whenever you go to mount this, to make sure that everything fits in nice and secure. It does come with a two year warranty. It's CSA certified and made in the USA. And that's going to do it for our look at the Atwood RV Water Heater with heat exchange.
