What type of water heater is it? Propane
? 120V electric? Both? And what are the physical dimensions and mounting configuration?
I am in the process of replacing the water heater in my EggCamper
. The original unit was a used 6 gallon propane
only Atwood that I removed from a motor home I was scrapping out. The aluminum tank corroded through but it was probably over 25 years old. I'm replacing it with a 6 gallon Suburban propane/120V unit to give me more flexibility. Of course it will require some fiberglass work since the through body port is a different size than the Atwood.
One suggestion. Shop around. The price quotes for the one I bought varied by over $200 for the same model number. The local rv dealers prices were the highest. Mail order is definitely the way to go.
