Showing my ignorance... You are correct. I changed the anode rod.
It's raining right now, so I'll check the heating element when it stops. Thanks!

You will need an elec. element socket(wrench) available at home depot or lowes for about $5. They should have a compatible element also. Our Ace carries Camco elements.

The electric side started working again, but for about 3-4 hours. Then, it threw the breaker (also the breaker at the campground). Very weird...
Still raining, so I've switched back to propane for now.

Okay, I got almost through putting in the heating element, and it started pouring rain again. I'll update once things will dry out a bit.

No, wmtire. This is what it looked like when I took it out. I don't have any of the gadgets to test out electric 'stuff'.Click image for larger version

My eyes/memory aren't as good as they should be. Can't remember if this is how I unhooked the wires. Before I turn power back on, what do y'all think?Click image for larger version

Let me try to find another pic to compare. Larry, since you are using your phone to take pics, it's too easy not to use it to also take a pic of something before you mechanic on it, so you have a reference to go back on.

I've gotten to the point, where I use my phone to take all kind of pics, before I start doing mechanic work on stuff. Has saved my bacon many times.

Here's one from the web, as yours seems to be the same wiring.
