The Rheem RTG-53DVN model differs from the 53PVN model in that this unit requires a 2nd hose pulling air in from the outside. The RTG-53PVN model offers and internal combustion air setting and does not require external air or the 2nd hose to the outside.

This model can be linked with another RTG-53DV in series with the EZ-Link cable (RTG-20040) for high demand applications as the two units would operate as one with double the water flow. When 3 to 20 units are connected in series a manifold controller, cables and/or control boards are required.
