Pressure tested twice during manufacturing, its integrity is ensured. Needs to be equipped with an indoor-mounted switch for ignition control (sold separately), this model features a convenient exterior gas line connection. The copolymer insulation jacket, meticulously fitted to retain heat, underscores its efficiency. With a focus on fast recovery, this water heater promises ample hot water supply and minimizes cool water cycles, akin to household water heaters, thus ensuring a seamless experience for RV users.
