SUBURBAN, an AIRXCEL® brand, announced today that is has ramped up production capacity of its recently released ST42 and ST60 tankless, on-demand water heaters. Jeff Cowan, national OEM sales manager, made the announcement.

“Building on more than seven decades of providing exceptional products to the market, Suburban’s new ST42 and ST60 ensure the end user has a great experience,” said Cowan. “We’re also committed to helping our OEM partners elevate their products with high quality, reliable American made appliances. So far, we’ve supplied the ST42 to many OEMs and the feedback on quality, performance and cost has been outstanding.”

Cowan continued, “Effective design and engineering enable Suburban to manufacture these tankless water heaters domestically with American workers while effectively competing on price for similar products imported from China.”

Using standard component sizes for easy, quick installation was a stated goal for Suburban’s design team on both the ST42 and ST60, ensuring the new units are compatible with existing RV design.

The ST42 performs with 42,000 BTU/h and the ST60 with 60,000 BTU/h heat output to accommodate RV water heating needs from entry level travel trailers all the way up to luxury Class A motorhomes. Both are comparable in size to standard 6-gallon tanked water heaters; a feature allowing for easy conversion from a tank to a tankless model for OEMs and end users alike.

Both models feature automatically adjusting BTU/h input to maintain a steady and reliable water temperature, and built-in freeze protection which is important for RVers readying for winter camping.

Cowan concluded, “With the addition of the ST42 and ST60, Suburban now has the most complete line of water heating products, both porcelain lined steel tanks and tankless water heaters. And in addition to supplying OEMs, Suburban products are available through the broadest distribution network to support RV dealers and consumers.”
