Enjoy endless hot water with the Suburban Nautilus On-Demand RV Water Heater. Say good-bye to waiting for water to reheat in a conventional tank. Showers and baths are best enjoyed slowly, so live free from the restraints of limited hot water supplies. Dishes and even the laundry can be done with an infinite supply of hot water whenever and wherever, simultaneously from every fixture.

With no storage tank to heat water, the Nautilus On-Demand RV Water Heater reduces weight and increases efficiency by only operating when the need for hot water arises. Weighing just 36 lbs. with the vent assembly, the Nautilus On-Demand RV Water Heater comes standard with a freeze protection mechanism and state-of-the-art 3-Try Direct Spark Ignition for safe and reliable operation.

• Exclusive 60,000-BTU two-stage self-modulating combustion system (MCS)
• Built-in freeze protection
• MCS monitors inlet water temperature and water flow, output water temperature, heat exchanger, and burner operation
• Instantaneously adjusts LP gas input for consistent and endless comfort regardless of hot water needs
• Only 36 lbs. installed
• Porcelain-lined steel tank for long life
• Anode rod to "absorb" electrolytical action
• Tank is pressure-tested twice to ensure integrity

Great showers!

I purchased the Suburban Nautilus water heater and installed it myself. I am learning to use it as it sometimes provides warm water followed by cold and then hot. It is great to take a hot shower without running out of hot water. I should have installed this years ago. The only problem I had was determining what to do with the -12 volt DC wire. There is no explanation of what to do with it in the installation instructions. I just capped it off and the heater seems to be working fine!

Exact replacement for 2020 Airstream Interstate 24 GT

The product was an exact replacement for my on demand water heater. The ordering process was easy online. The product arrived well packaged and within the estimated arrival day. The product included everything needed to hook up; however, depending on your specific set up you may have to get adaptors for the water line connections.
