I dont know if I would notice a big difference between the 6 & 10 gal and is it worth it for the DSI?
Thanks for any help on this.
You should be able to get a 10 gal. suburban in either pilot, DSI, re-igniter/electric or DSI electric as I have worked on all of these. I would suggest the DSI/electric combo as you can use the electric side when hooked to a camp ground.
On the other hand, If you're going to spend upwards of $800 for that water heater, you might want to look at the Precision Temp RV-500. It is a propane-fired tankless design which will give you an unlimited amount of hot water if you're on city water. www.precisiontemp.com
I have one in my 19CCD and I used one for 5 years in my now sold Monaco Dynasty MoHo. They are a great product, IMHO.
