Convenience Center hot water

So the convenience center in the Forest River sunseeker has to water heater options gas or electric you can run them both together over ride each other and work properly or just one or the other. I recommend the electric when you're hooked up to electric. One has to look really hard in the instructions to find out how they work. See my post on the bypass valves buried under the sink behind a screwed on panel.Click image for larger version

Looking at that panel, your RV could have either an Atwood brand water heater or a Suburban SWDEL water heater.


If you have the Suburban brand SWDEL water heater, this thread we keep in the FAQ subsection will explain it all:


Suburban's electric switch and much more

Faster recovery time. That way if you take a longer shower or have others in line behind you, the water can be heated back quicker using both modes of heating at the same time.

Water heats up faster with both running.

Read the link above in post #3. It thoroughly explains the operation of...as far as a Suburban brand goes.
