Suburban Tankless WH

Well it's time to replace my 3 year old water heater. Already sprung a leak in the tank. I am surprised at the short life, but I did full time in her for 2 years. It was on 24/7 during that period running on electricity. Guess that derates the life expectancy curve a bit.

Anywho, was thinking about going tankless. Was looking at the new Suburban model but cant seem to find any reviews etc. Anyone out there with experience with this unit? I am liking it because it will go back into the footprint of a 6 gal tank. I also like the idea of a long shower.

Appreciate any responses on this.

We went with a PrecisionTemp 550 that fits into essentially the same hole. The Atwood is a licensed copy.

I'm pleased with the fit, and wife is pleased with the long hot showers. I'd call that a win-win.

Lots of other comments-Do a search for more inputs pro and con. Ain't cheap, but peace in the family was worth it. I did my own install, YMMV.

Tankless Water Heater

I was watching the Atwood Rep do a presentation on their tankless when I was picking up my trailer. Looked pretty impressive. Don't know much more than that.
