Lou, great minds think alike. I was also researching youtube videos to show the OP what it may entail to replace the water heater. Here are two more:

That 16 gallon water heater looks awesome.

Just remember you will need to increase the size of the wall opening (the 10, 12, and 16 gallon units use bigger holes) and you will need to order a larger door as well (they do not come with the replacement units).

Thanks, I will probably have the dealer do it just in case anything goes wrong.

Far as I know, Suburban's (BY FAR the most common) are not adjustable except by thermostat replacement. Atwood units not only do not require an anode, but SOME have adjustable thermostats and there is an aftermarket adjustable one for most models that do not ship with one.

little off topic, but if Atwoods don't require an anode rod, why do the sell them specifically for them? I put one in mine right after buying it in January, just to read later that not necessary. I understand now why it doesn't "need" one, but yet they sell them....HMMMM

Gotta LOVE marketing!

They only make a 6 and 10 gallon unit though.

You know what P.T. Barnum had to say about that; right?
