Impulse buying is the most satisfying thing you can do and you usually walk away happy with your purchase.

Thanks all
Stanleyg - I believe the TE = the Touring Edition bundle the trailer shipped with - Power awning & tongue jack, Aluminum wheels, TV&DVD etc
I think the girls wanting to continue camping with us is awesome - and if this helps all the better
KyDan I will be checking for the new anode on Friday
I think the estimate for the truck put us a 85-95% on GVWR GCWR & GAWR numbers so should be good to go

Man o' man, I betcha that is the most anybody has ever paid for an anode rod replacement. I know I should not be laughing at your overpriced repair cost, but that is just too funny.

Congrats on the new camper !!

Remember if it has an Atwood hot water heater no anode is needed. Doh. Back to the Rv show.

I would imagine the insurance policy will look funny when you value that anode rod!!

Congrats!!

My 318 does not have an anode.......are you sure that you went to an RV show for an anode and did not come home with one?

You all are right - no anode on this one -- we found out friday it came with the 18 Gallon/Hour Quick Recovery Mode Atwood Water Heater
That should slow down the anode shopping at the next RV show
