Since mine is still under warranty I took it to the shop on Monday for the fix whereas normally I would have done a self-fix. I will post later their analysis and repair requirements hopefully later this week. At least I am glad these bugs are biting while it is still under the warranty period.

Just yesterday I received full reinbursement for my cost of part and shipping for the 120V thermostat. I bought the part from a third party internet dealer although it was a Suburban marked parts bag. I told them in my letter I installed and tested myself, no labor charges. When I first reported it they hesitated on 3rd party and shipping but paid it all.

Thanks to all that posted a reply to my post back in mid October. I ended up draining the tank and changing out the anode rod, heating element which I was able to diagnose bad with a multimeter (resistance check), and the thermostat. No problems! So nice to be using the campground electricity rather than my propane! Now I can help others know how to do this!
