Electric

I have a 30 amp, & I leave my on all the time with my fridge, & AC. Now if I use my microwave, I do turn off the AC until I'm finished. Then I turn my AC back on, never had any issues.

Which model water heater does FR put in the Forester/Sunseeker? I thought they were Suburban, but the one I saw at the dealer was Atwood. Could be seeing things??? No anode rod or electric rod, just the vinyl white plug to drain.

"Hot" is relative.

Agreed. Just because the water cooled enough to be reheated doesn't mean that it isn't still "hot".

But, I've also never understood the need to correct this one. Same with being pedantic over propane tanks vs. cylinders vs. bottles.

We have the Atwood on our 2016. I think 2016 and newer will all have Atwoods.

The reason I asked, is because my current MH has an Atwood water heater and the temperature was way too hot for us. I purchase online the adjustable thermostat and set the temperature down as low as it would go to the letter "A". It delivers water at 117 degrees instead of 155. Since it's just the DW and myself, we've never had a problem running out of hot water showering. I did purchase a spare thermostat and am saving it for the new Forester, hopefully with an Atwood water heater.

Because the proper term is water heater.
