Cajun - thanks for trying...

jrlebaron - I've sent the paint codes to about half-a-dozen web sites that mix paint and put into spray can applications. Have not heard from any of them yet. Thanks for the advice and suggestion.

My tab that holds the cover on broke while at the dealer. It was plastic and they replaced it with a metal one. They said that the plastic ones are not good. As a precaution to all, check whether the heater door tab is plastic or metal. X2 to the additional safety tie or paper clip.

The little spring loaded tab lock on the Berk water heater cover is a joke. Luckily mine broke off in my hand while the unit was stationary ... I still have my cover.

Rather than attempting to replace the spring loaded gizmo, I fed a bolt through from the inside. Locked it in place with a nut ... leaving only about 1/4 inch of the bolt sticking out past the cover. I then secure the cover in place with a felt backed rubber washer and a wing nut. It work like a charm.

This will not bring back your lost covers but it will prevent then being lost a second time.
