Product Overview

The Suburban SW12DEL Gas Water Heater is lauded for its reliability
and simple upkeep. Featuring a high-recovery 12,000 BTU/hour system with
a porcelain steel tank, foam insulation, and a replaceable anode rod,
it ensures durability. Notably, it incorporates a 12 Volt Relay for
Interior Operation of the Electric Heating System. The one-piece,
die-formed housing provides both control protection and easy access,
fitting seamlessly into existing RV cut-out openings. Installing the
access door and frame is straightforward. Additionally, the SW12DEL Model
offers versatility by utilizing campground or generator power through
its 1440-watt Incoloy electric element, achieving a recovery rate of 6.1
gallons per hour. For faster recovery at 16.2 gallons per hour, users
can simultaneously use both gas and electric. The gas ignition switch,
available separately, allows convenient control from within the RV. It's
important to note that gas appliances should be installed and serviced
by qualified technicians. During manufacturing, the water heater tank
undergoes pressure testing twice to ensure its integrity, employing a
porcelain-lined steel construction with an anode rod to absorb
electrolytical action, similar to home water heaters.
