Atwood offers many different models of 6 – to 10-gallon water heaters for these purposes. The GC6AA 10E Atwood water heater is a 6-liter capacity heater that uses propane gas and electricity to operate. This heater can work with gas or electric. Every time you set up your campsite or leave on your boat, you have to start the heating. Things you will need
