Unfortunately, I must agree. However, the member may also need a hi-limit/ Thermostat for the electric side, as they can often mess up in conjunction with the heating element burning out.
But as long as the propane side is working, the member can use it like that indefinitely...and not even bother with the electric element replacement.
That's the great thing about the dual power source water heaters. You can use one, the other, or both at the same time...if needed. If one side is inoperable, then you have the option of using the other and keep on camping ....provided of course you have propane and/or a source of 120 volt power for the electric element.
