That sounds good to me, but where would you install it.

You said that you would like to go back to the Surburban 10 gal. I do not think that it will go into where a tankless was. Yes a tankless will go where a Surburban was. Therefore I do no understand your last reply.

You misunderstood - I had a suburban and considered going tankless but decided against it....

In my Berk with the water heater on the right rear, there is plenty of room for a 10 gallon water heater. With the new configuration for 2014, I'm not sure.

In my 2011 it would take major fabrication to get a ten gal in. If you have a tank type now I can see staying with the same system. If it's a tankless I would push to have FR or Gerrard make it right. I started with a gen 1 and got it to work ok but not great. With the gen 2 there is no way I would go to a tank type system. I can take a ten minute shower if I want and never run out of HW. I would let FR and Gerrard have the chance to make it right. I do believe they will.

I just put a Suburban SW10DE (10 gal ) water heater in my 2008 Berk with no mod required.... I'm sitting in my rig at the FMCA Perry rally and it's pumping out hot water......

Ernest,
Didn't the '08 have a Suburban 10 gal in it originally? I know mine did.

Yes it did therefore no mod needed.... The Gerrard tankless unit slides right into the existing opening but as I stated earlier, I opted out of the tankless....
