Good unit. My last one lasted 12 years
Good unit. My last one lasted 12 years. This is an exact replacement.
Disregard the reviews about bad instructions for two reasons. 1) you slide it in and hook up the wires and scew on the gas line; DONE. If you cannot hook this up you are the type of person that needs instructions to eat your own dinner. 2) the unit comes with complete diagrams for hook-up (which are not needed). You do need to know how to read them.
Things you do need that are not in the box. Butyl (putty) tape to seal the lip of the unit against the opening of your rv. You will also need the nipples and ptfe (plummers) tape since the unit comes only with the female connections for the water in and out (as it should be). Use brass nipples and fittings. DO NOT USE PLASTIC OR GALVANIZED. Eventually the galvanization will corrode and leak at the threads. The plastic fittings will expand and contract in winter storage and with the constant heating and cooling of the tank, eventually the plastic will crack at the threads.
Price was my only gripe... however buying online saved me almost 200 over buying at the dealer. These things are just overpriced in general.

This water heater needs better instructions
By Ruth Slaughter--Dakota Sunshine Express
Instructions were not easily read or followed as the diagrams needed more explanation. Gas/propane portion hookup was okay, but instructions very vague on hooking up the electrical aspect or coordinating electric without clear instructions or obvious switches.
Unit was new but did not include the hinges for the outside door. Unit was shipped very promptly & arrived earlier than expected.

Great deal on exact fit water heater
By Christopher O'Brien
These guys made sure all was right after the sale. Had bad circuit board on new hot water heater. Mailed me out my part fired up first try. Would definitely buy from them again. Exact fit for my jayco trailer install could not go any easier.
