Gas Water Heaters
Quality you want ... now and down the road.
Suburban's line of Suburban Advantage RV water heaters includes high recovery gas, gas/electric combination and gas/electric/motor aid models with sizes and features to match the requirements of almost any RV. Tank capacities include 4, 6, 10, 12 and 16 gallon models.
Heated water attacks all metals - and that's why Suburban uses porcelain-lined, steel tanks with an anode rod to "absorb" the electrolytic action - just like your water heater at home. To understand the purpose and function of the Anode Rod, please CLICK HERE and take a moment to watch this short video.
In fact, when a Suburban Advantage porcelain-lined tank is properly maintained, tank life may double or triple its three-year limited warranty saving owners the cost of premature replacement. In addition, every Suburban Advantage tank is pressure tested twice during the manufacturing process to ensure its integrity.

The limit switch, reset button and on/off electric element rocker switch (if applicable) are conveniently located in a housing behind the removable outer door. The electric heat element and drain plug/anode rod are also located there. For convenience of installation, rough-in openings for Suburban water heaters are small and less likely to interfere with RV exterior design.
All Suburban Advantage porcelain lined, steel tank water heaters feature:
• Convenient exterior gas line connection
• One-piece, die-formed metal control housing that protects controls from the weather
• Copolymer insulation jacket specially formed to fit the tank for additional heat retention.
