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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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 # 405383ET For a 18" X 18" door use # 405384ET I would choose the smallest door unless I was working with an existing mount from a previous installation.

  • Replacement for Atwood G6A-8E 6 gallon Water Heater
  • Yes, if you want a 6-gallon gas/electric water heater then the Atwood # DMC74FR is the only choice. You should know that it is more like 20" deep, and its width and height is smaller so you will need the # DMC84FR door conversion kit to help fit it to the old opening. Your installer will use a few common hardware store fittings when installing the new heater.

  • Replacement Atwood GC 10A-3E
  • Many older Atwood water heaters have been discontinued, the most straight forward replacement for yours currently is the Atwood RV Water Heater # AT94022. This is a 10 gallon gas/electric as 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. It mounts in your coach for easy operation. If you prefer to replace...

  • Recommended Replacement For An Atwood GC6AA-10E Water Heater
  • The Dometic RV Water Heater - Gas - Automatic Pilot - 12 Volt - 8,800 Btu - 6 Gal Tank Item AT96121 is the direct replacement for the GC6AA-10E. 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...

  • 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....

  • Recommended Tankless Water Heater For 2018 Keystone Laredo Fifth Wheel RV
  • There are a few options when it comes to finding a tankless water heater for your 2018 Keystone Laredo 5th Wheel Rv. The main thing that comes into play here is the size of the cut out that you currently have for your water heater, which you will want to measure. The Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater - Gas - Automatic Pilot - 60,000 BTU - 16" x 16" Door # FR98SR has cut out dimensions of 12-5/8" tall, 12-13/16" wide, and 19-3/16" deep.

  • Replacement RV Water Heater for Suburban SW6DE
  • You report that your Suburban water heater has a 14-1/2" X 14-1/2" height and width. The Furrion # FR93FR tankless water heater will fit in that opening with room to spare. You may have to frame in 1-1/2" thick materials to create a tight fit. Then you can use the Furrion # FR43FR door kit to trim off your installation. I have attached dimensioned pictures of the door for you. Your installer will need some miscellaneous plumbing parts to complete the installation.

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • 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.

  • Replacement Tankless Water Heater for Dometic G6A-8E
  • 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...

  • Are There Check Valves Needed When Installing the Fogatti RV Tankless Water Heater
  • In regards to the Fogatti RV Tankless Water Heater part # LSB44FR, there should be some sort of shutoff valve on the gas pipe, inlet pipe and outlet pipe per the instructions. 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. The rest of the fittings would need to be obtained through a local hardware store.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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. This is the most important thing in regards to a fit, but of course you will also need to have connections there for propane and 12 volt power, though those will already be there from your previous water heater, assuming you had a gas/12 volt heater. So what you will need to do is know the size of your cut out, and you can choose the right tankless heater that way....

  • Recommended RV Water Heater Replacement For An Atwood Water Heater
  • I recommend the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater - Gas - Automatic Pilot - 60,000 BTU - 16" x 16" Door Item # FR98SR as there currently aren't any Atwood water heaters available at this time due to the pandemic. It has similar dimensions at 12-5/8L x 12-13/16W x 19-3/16D 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. The on-demand hot water and ability to set the temperature to a specific degree...

  • 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.

  • Replacement RV Water Heater for the Atwood GC6AA-10E

  • 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.

  • Need Temporary Power For My Electric Pilot Water Heater.
  • Yes you can connect a battery to the water heater to power the pilot, you will just need make sure you have a way to keep the battery charged. I suggest using the CTEK US 0.8 Universal Battery Charger with Pulse Maintenance - Small 12-Volt Batteries # CTEK56865. This is not the same as charging a battery via your vehicle. It will take more time for it to reach peak performance charge so keep that in mind before you go on any long trips.

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...
