    Old water heater sprang a leak, of course while away from home. Ran down to local CW and thankfully had in stock. Taking old out and installing new wasn't that difficult and only needed a few tools. However, the water heater wouldn't fire up immediately, came on for a few seconds and then off, repeat several times. Let sit for extended time and did get it to come on and stay. Then after a day it wouldn't function properly, off and on for very short periods. By then it was Monday morning, called Atwood and after lengthy hold period finally a tech. Turns out this one has a faulty circuit board, a number of units were sent out with this problem. They offered some options, send me a new one or I go find a new one locally and they reimburse. Selected they send me a replacement. Awaiting the new board now. Had to call them back the next day and after a very lengthy hold time elected the "they call me back" option and they actually did, twice. Gave a 3 star rating because of the bad circuit board from the get go.
    Pros: Manufacturer service, Easy installation
    Cons: Bad circuit board

    The new water heater slid right into the RV to replace the original. Nice to see someone build a product that is user friendly. Fired right up and works great.

    I just bought this water heater in replacement of my 1988 Atwood 6 gal LP with DSI.I figured that after 22 years of faithfull would be time for a new one. I noticed that this year, the model is much more silent and they have changed the dual probe to a single one in the ignition module. This makes better sense as the former one needed to be exactly spaced just like you would find on a spark plug. Overall, very satisfied and no need for an anode rod since it is an aluminium tank !
