Operate your LP Water Heater from inside your RV and produce up to 7.4 gallons of hot water per hour at 70% efficiency for gas models using temperature raising 60F to 160F. Gas lines are connected in a sealed combustion area and vented to the autside as an extra safety precaution. 8800 BTU. USA.
Pilot Ignition has economical time-tested performance. The pilot is manually lit when the destination is reached and hot water is available in less than 30 minutes.
Serviceable - 95% of all serviceable components are accessible through the exterior door. This reduces service time and virtually eliminates the need for service personnel to enter your coach.
Multiple protection features - Problems are prevented with the high temperature limit switch, thermostat, and pressure and temperature relief valve. An externally sealed combustion chamber keeps the outside of the unit clean.
Matching access doors - Atwood access doors are painted with tough, durable paint in a variety of popular colors which ensures a clean and attractive exterior.
Mounting options - All 6 and 10 gallon models can be mounted flush into the RV sidewall for an integrated, attractive appearance/
Aluminum clad tank - Less weight and the cladding eliminates the need for an anode rod.
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 serv...ice...it 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 !
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 a...nd 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.
Direct replacement of a G6A-6 is an Atwood G6A-7, item# 3687. Item# 3690 is a G6A-8E model water heater that has electronic ignition instead of being a manually lit pilot version like the G6A-6/7 models.

No, this water heater is a G6A-8E model. A direct replacement would be a GC6AA-10E which can only be obtained through an OEM dealer of Atwood products, we only deal in Aftermarket. The closest we have to a replacement for a GC6AA-9E is a GCH6A-10E which has all the same specs except for an added Heat Exchange feature.

My camper is a 1994 and has a G6A7. Is this a direct replacement? If not, can you tell me what is? Thanks
