I know the feeling.... in 2013 I had an a/c replaced on a Roo 23SS and wound up buying a Flasgstaff Super Lite 27BESS. This year, we had the Flagstaff lifted and wound up with the Sunseeker 3010DS. I CAN NOT take DW to a dealership for ANYTHING!

Congrats, nice rig.

I would add, you don't even have to go shopping for an anode rod for this to happen. My wife and I were dropping our trailer at the RV dealer where we stored it when she spotted a couple used Sunseekers. Sure enough, one was a 1 year old 2860 which was the model we wanted. By the end of the next week it was ours.

Have fun with it.

That's why I shop at Amazon or I cringe at the thought of taking DW to a RV dealer to get any needed parts.

I usually suggest people buy two when they buy anode rods. In your case I don't recommend it.

Even better - your new Sunseeker water heater doesn't require anode rods! Congrats!

If that is what you call an "anode rod," we can't wait to see when you have to replace your water pump or power converter !!!!

Looks awesome, Congratulations !!!!

Similar thing here. DW went with me to the local dealer for some minor items for our TH which was up for sale. We got rid of the toys and only used it a few times in the last two years. A month later we had a new one.
Enjoy it!
