I want to replace my aging pilot light atwood 6 gallons water heater with a new Suburban 6 gallons electronic ignition.

Problem:

The opening on my trailer is 16w x12.5 high to accommodate the atwood and the suburban is only 12 11/16"x 12 11/16"... So is there some kind of plate I could install over my existing opening and install the suburban over it?

Thanks,

F

Frederic,

I don't know of any conversion kit. I would stick with the an Atwood, which can be purchased with electric ignition. That's what I have in mine. The model is G6A-8E
