    Incorrect water heater installed from factory?

    Gd markets our 2021 Imagine 2800Bh as having a 17.8 gallon per hour recovery rate/6 gallon water heater.

    This is the placard off of our water heater, is it just me but did I get a smaller or inferior performance water heater installed in my new trailer instead of what their flyer/website states? Let me know if Iím wrong, thanks.

    That is the same one we have

    In order to achieve the 17.8 recovery both modes need to be used at the same time. Gas and electric

    Advertised recovery on RV water heaters is typically listed as the maximum achievable using both electric element and burner simultaneously. The picture of the label is burner only.

    I didn’t even think of the dual mode recovery rate! Thanks for the info, I appreciate it.
