Finding and identifying your RV’s water heater information

Join me in the video below “In The RV Shop” as I talk about where to locate your RV water heater information. Besides the model number, you will find the serial number, which is necessary when contacting any RV dealership or repair shop. Dometic, Suburban or Furrion will all require this information on your water heater to look up the unit, purchase parts and to assist with any troubleshooting.

Model and serial number locations

The model and serial number information can be located by opening the water heater access door on the outside of your RV. The data plate with black printing is located on the right side of the metal housing as you face it from the outside.

Tech support

If you’re looking for help or tech support, be sure to visit the water heater manufacturer’s website. If you’re having trouble finding the information online, contact the manufacturer’s customer service. Provide them with the model and serial numbers, and they should be able to assist you in identifying and ordering the correct parts.

Visit your local RV parts store

Local RV dealerships or parts retailers may also carry a variety of water heater parts. You can visit them with your model and serial numbers to inquire about availability.
