Most people rely on the water heater in their recreational vehicle. Having a camper is a luxury for numerous reasons. Maintenance however, is needed on your rv on a regular basis and you will benefit if you do preventive maintenance. It can be performed by you or by an recreational vehicle dealership.You will enjoy a trip for sure without the hassle of having no hot water when you are ready ready to take a shower or do the dishes for your wife. If you need to replace a Suburban rv water heater you can change it with the same model, or you can upgrade it if you have one of the more basic suburban rv water heaters.
Suburban RV water heaters for the most part come in six and ten gallon capacities. The main variation is if it is has a pilot light or an electronic ignition. Most people like to have the ability to have their rv water heater light with a flip of a switch from the inside of the camper. This requires the water heater to have a direct spark lighter instead of a standing pilot light. While the DSI is nice, it is a little more expensive.Suburban makes a model with a standing pilot, and a DSI model, and also a gas/electric with DSI. If you have a Suburban rv water heater with a six gallon six gallon tank you probably want to stay with that size, but you might want to pick one to exchange it with that has a DSI option, or the electric (120v ) option or maybe splurge and get both. You don't have to stay with the exact brand, but you need to check the opening size to make sure the one you pick will fit if you are splurging and making the leap to get a nicer one.

One of the best tips I could give you to make sure that this is the case is to test it before you leave on your trip.
