Suburban, a division of Airxcel, announces a new line of 6 Gallon RV water heaters forSAW6D, DE, DEL the aftermarket designed for new water heater installations and to replace existing water heaters models with aluminum storage tanks.  The Suburban Advantage 6 Gallon Water Heater fits in the same cutout as a 6 Gallon Atwood/Dometic water heater but is manufactured with a Porcelain Lined Steel Tank that, with the use of an anode rod, will have a longer life than aluminum tanks models.

10,000 BTU/h of LP Gas provide a fast recovery time; combine that with the optional 120 VAC 1440 W Incoloy electric element and the recovery rate is even faster.  “The recovery rate basically gives an idea of how fast a water heater can heat water.  The larger the recovery number, the more hot water (at the desired set point) the end user can expect to be delivered over any given use period.” said Mitch Cornelius, Product Manager for Suburban Water Heaters.  “Plus, by using Flue Tube Baffles, which is an industry exclusive, we are actually able to transfer more heat to the water in tank, further enhancing the recovery rate” said Mitch.

“The tank has a 3 year limited warranty, the best in the industry and it is offered in three models” said Steve Gokie Director of Aftermarket Sales.  “The Suburban Advantage fits into the same cut-out as the Atwood/Dometic so no modifications are required making replacing it easy” added Steve.
