Lightbulb 2018 Jayco hot water tank replacement

My hot water tank burst and I'm trying to find a replacement for it. It was an atwood 91818. Every site says they are out of stock I was told a suburban 91596 would fit and hook up the same but I can't find any photos that show the hook up and am worried it won't work. Any help??

Have you checked Dometic? They bought Attwood.

From Amazon
Dometic WH-6GEA RV Gas and Electric Water Heater - 12 Volt 6 Gallon Silver Burner-Quick Heating Burner System for Indoor Installation https://a.co/d/1NIv4fS

Are you sure you don’t want to change over to a tankless water heater?
BTW almost all rv water heaters will fit and work in an rv regardless of the model number.

Mine burst last winter and I had it replaced with the new Dometic model. It's more square and I had to get the filler pieces installed for the outside. It worked perfectly all last year, just getting things ready now for the June trip.

I thought about the tankless but I was worried I would not be able to figure it out. Thank you for the advice I have ordered the wh6gea and door and watched a video so Im thinking I will be able to do this!

Good luck with it. The new model has a different drain cap, and I find it much easier to get to than the old one.
