    Suggest that the water lines be marked as to which one is “IN” and which one is “OUT”. May not make any difference, but if both are the same length, they could get mixed up. Also, suggest that when using adjustable wrenches, they be held properly so as not to cause any stress in the jaws. V.O.E.! :) Adjustables have cracked in the track for the sliding jaw, up near the stationary jaw! Check for leaks on the gas line with liquid detergent and check for leaks on the water lines before securing everything.

    I’m a retired Maintenance Mechanic and that’s why I bring up these points. :)

    Patrick! Real Mechanic’s use Open end tool’s, Marking water -line’s like you cant see the one froim the holding tank or the supply line intering the floorboard? Yeah Soapy water in a smal mister bottle is right for checking for propane leak’s , you got that right But adjustible wrench’s tend to slip & round of the water or Gas fitting’s!! I’ve worked on enoiugh aircraft-& M-113 armor personal carrier’s & Tank’s to know that! Not! no-Mechanic Just U.S.Army Retired Rick Vogel

    Hi Guys and Gals:
    We replace the electric heating element in our new Suburban water heater.
    It comes with a 120 volt – 1440 watt heating element.
    We replaced it with an 240 volt – 1440 watt heating element found at True-Value Hardware for $10.
    Our new heating element draws 4 amps/ not 12 amps while hooked up to 120 volts of power.
    Not enough hot water fast enough? You can turn on the LP gas fired function at the same time as using the electric element.
    Caution – do not install this element yourself if you are not qualified. Shock and gas explosions possible.

    Flush out your water heater and look at the anode while you are there.

    Happy Camping,
    Fred b.

    My rv’s water heater pilot lights o.k. but after turning the dial to “on” it runs for about a minute then goes out. Any suggestions on what part I need?
