are 14 pounds lighter than competitive models; 10 gallon models are 30 pounds lighter.
Atwood water heaters operate on L.P. gas. In addition, there are models that operate from an electric source,
with an engine coolant heat exchanger or both. With the electric option, the heater can be run either off an electrical hook up or agenerator. The heat
exchanger safely transfers otherwise wasted energy from the engine-cooling system of a motorized coach to the
water heater during travel. When you arrive at your destination, hot water is available immediately. You save
energy, time and money!

prevent problems before they happen. An externally sealed combustion chamber keeps the outside of the unit cleaner.
Pre-skin installation—Atwood water heaters can be set in place, connected and tested on the coach floor before setting the sidewallsin place. This gives
