Suburban has pioneered new and better systems for the RV Industry since the late 1960's, including space-saving, horizontally vented, gas heating systems and solid state spark ignition systems. These are the best water heaters on the road today and there are a number of reasons why:
Faster Recovery - Fast recovery means more hot water. 6 gallon Suburban Water Heaters feature 12,000 BTUH input and a recovery rate of 10.2 gallons per hour, that's the fastest in the industry.
More convenience - All Suburban Water Heaters are designed for easy installation, operation and maintenance. The limit switch and reset button are conveniently located in a housing behind the removable outer door. The electric heat element and combination drain plug/anode rod are also located there. For convenience of installation, rough-in openings for Suburban heaters are small and less likely to interfere with RV exterior design.
Longer Life - Heated water attacks all metals, but not porcelain. That's why Suburban uses a porcelain lined, steel water heater tank with an anode rod to "absorb" the electrolytical action - just like your water heater at home.
