Suburban Direct Spark/Electric 12 Gallon Water Heater Description

For higher recovery, use the gas and optional electric element water heaters which use a 1,440 watt element to recover an additional 6 gallons per hour.

Heated water attacks all metals, but not porcelain. That's why Suburban uses a porcelain-lined, steel water heater tank with an anode rod to "absorb" the electrolytical action - just like your water heater at home. In fact, when a Suburban porcelain-lined tank is properly maintained, tank life may double or triple its three-year limited warranty, saving owners the cost of premature replacement. In addition, every Suburban tank is pressure tested twice during the manufacturing process to ensure its integrity.

Fast recovery means more hot water and fewer cool water cycles. Suburban also uses a copolymer insulation jacket specially molded to fit the tank. This does a better job of retaining heat than the "cardboard" style used on some competitive models.

All Suburban water heaters are designed for easy installation, operation and maintenance. The limit switch, reset button and on/off electric element rocker switch are conveniently located in a housing behind the removeable outer door. The electric heat element and combination drain plug/anode rod are also located there. For convenience of installation, rough-in openings for Suburban water heaters are small and less likely to interfere with RV exterior design.

5 of 5 Excellent Purchase March 2, 2019
Reviewer: Craig Sabo from Elkton, MD United States  
My purchase experience with "My12VoltStore" was excellent and timely.  I found exactly what I was looking for at a comparatively good price.  Free shipping was included and promised in 3 days.  Three days after clicking the confirm purchase button the unit was sitting at my front door.  The water heater itself was a Suburban SW12 DE and was delivered in perfect condition.  This was one of my best online purchases in a while, found what I wanted at a good price, ordered it and had it at my door in 3 days.  I have no problem recommending this site to friends and family.

Reviewer: Don Patterson from Discovery Bay, CA United States  
The product arrived in a timely manner. The ability to track its progress during shipment though is not provided. The only info available was that it had been shipped. No info on the carrier, current locations, or projected delivery time/date.

5 of 5 Fast service June 21, 2018
Reviewer: Michael Hamlin from Coon Rapids, MN United States  
I put off purchasing a new water heater thinking I would save money fixing the old one. But I was running out of time and ordered one. The shipping methods were a little confusing. I paid the $20 for UPS ground and ordered it Thurs afternoon. Imagine my surprise when it arrived Saturday!
