Went camping this weekend. 2nd trip out this year. 1st was in Feb so I
had to winterize when we got back. I did great then except for one little
item.... forgot to shut off the breaker for my electric water heater.
Fast forward to Friday. Arrive campground. Sunshine!! Woo Hoo!
Park, level, unhitch, hook up water and electric.
Reach in storage hatch and twist both winter bypass valves back to summer
mode. Go inside and remove airator from kitchen faucet and open hot
faucet valve to purge air from lines and allow WH tank to fill. Move around
trailer opening all faucets to let out pink antifreeze.
Everything is great.
Squat down to turn on breaker for electric hot water.
breaker is ALREADY on!! Shoot!!! Go to tank area and don't hear
any sound. I should be hearing the sound of the element heating.
Some folks think it sounds like dolphins or whales off in the distance.
I think it sounds like a pan of water heating on a stove.
Well it's supposed to sound like that!
Oh, well. Home Depot has them for $9.98 each. Camco brand, 1500
watt, 120v screw in. sku 296896
Online store check says they have 40 in stock at my store.
At least I can save shipping by buying local..... Seems like I'm there so
often they should give me my own parking spot
Wonder if they have a 2 pack??
If that's the only dumb thing I do this season it will be a VERY good year!!
