  • Keeping Fresh Water Tank and Lines from Freezing in a Lived-In 5th Wheel Trailer
  • If you live in the trailer all year then presumably you will be running heaters when it is cold. Provided the hot water heater and plumbing is internal to the trailer then the ambient temperature would prevent it from freezing. But I assume that the water heater is fed from the fresh water tank which is more external to the trailer. To keep it from freezing you could use a tank heater such as # 277-000164. Or we have heating element # W01-1573 designed for freeze protection on holding...

  • Generator Recommendation for Powering Atwood Air Command Rooftop RV Air Conditioner w Heat Pump
  • I attached a wiring diagram for the Atwood Air Command AC Unit part # AT15028-22 that you referenced for you to check out. The wattage requirement for this is 4,830 watts for starting so you'd need a generator rated higher than that. For that amount of wattage you'd need a generator setup like the etrailer.com Parallel Generator kit part # 333-0002-2-0007 which can support up to 6,000 watts drawn. Since your application isn't standard there isn't a set way to recommend the install but...

  • Atwood RV Water Heater with Electric Operation That Matches 12-1/2 x 16 x 18 Dimensions
  • We do have Atwood RV water heaters in both gas-only and gas/AC-electric types but we do not have an electric-only water heater. The standard gas/AC-electric unit that matches your 12-1/2 x 16 x 18 dimensions is the 6-gallon # AT96117. Model # AT96163 is similar but also includes a heat exchanger. If you want to operate one of these water heaters with only 120-volt AC electric power that is certainly possible.

  • Does Atwood Gas/Electric RV Water Heater AT94186 Heat Faster with Electricity or Propane
  • Thank you for your purchase of the Atwood Gas and Electric 10-Gallon Water Heater # AT94186 to replace your RV's failed unit. In most RV applications an electric power source will tend to be more consistent than a gas source and so for that reason Atwood's technician told me that in typical use electric power delivers faster heating of the water. This is not a rule so much as simply the typical behavior of these devices. RV gas pressure can change quite a bit from when a tank is full...

  • How to Locate Electric Heating Element in RV Water Heater
  • The actual electric heating element for your water heater, an item like # AT92249, is usually going to be located near the bottom of the unit since it must be immersed in the water tank.
