You finally arrived at the campsite in your class A Motorhome after a long day of driving do you need a hot shower? Do you have time to wait for the water heater to warm up the water so you can take that relaxing shower? Let the Suburban Direct Spark Electric and Gas 10 gallon water heater with motor aid boost your hot water heat up time with a heat exchanger that uses the motor, as you are driving to heat up the water in your hot water heater!

You will have no problem accessing the outside door that holds the Suburban Water Heater. Open up the door and you will find the limit switch, reset button and on/off electric element rocker switch conveniently located right there behind the access door.

Once a water heater warms up water the water will attack all metals in its path! Suburban hot water tanks are made of out of porcelain, not metal with a metal anode rod to give the hard water something to gnaw on besides your hot water heater parts. To make maintenance a cinch the anode rod and drain plug are located in the same compartment by the access door.

Most RVers have heard of the Suburban brand, but did you know that every Suburban Hot Water Tank is pressure tested twice during the manufacturing process to ensure its integrity? Suburban water heaters come with a 3 year limited warranty.

Easy for the do it yourself-er to install, operate and keep maintained. Suburban Water Heaters will last you for years and years with proper maintenance, like changing out a worn anode rod that we carry here at Dyers.
