Recommended Replacement For An Atwood GCH10A-4E RV Water Heater  


I need to replace my Atwood GCH10A-4e. No one seems to have one. Is there an acceptable replacement?


Expert Reply:

With the pandemic and Dometic taking over Atwood's water heater division it has been very hard to come by replacements. My honest recommendation is to go tankless and replace your Atwood GCH10A-4E with the Furrion RV Tankless Water Heater 60,000 BTU # FR98SR. This unit features a heating capacity of 13,000 - 60,000 Btu, well above that of your Atwood.

It has smaller dimensions at 12-5/8" L x 12-13/16" W x 19-3/16" D 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 instead of the old fashioned arrow knob will make camping much more enjoyable.

The # FR98SR has the following requirements to properly operate:

12VDC Power Input.

7.2-65PSI water Pressure (40-50PSI recommended). I recommend using a water pressure regulator like # CAM40064 to ensure proper water pressure.

11" WC - 14" WC (13" WC recommended). I recommend having a licensed technician check your pressure and adjust your regulator accordingly to ensure proper gas pressure.

If you have any further questions or need any assistance please feel free to reply back.
