Here is a link to photos of the process to replace your heating element-
Suburban water heater electric element R&R
After removing my burned out water heater element I see that it is
clearly marked camco 1500 watt 120 volt.
Home Depot has this heater in stock in most stores.
1500 wattage and Home Debit sku number which is 296896.
Price of $9.98
You'll also need a special deep socket to fit.
Camco Steel Water Heater Element Wrench
Model # 15493
Store SKU # 399493 ~ $8.25
They do have a 2000 watt 120v heater but it would draw about 16.6 amps.
That would clearly trip a 15 amp breaker.
The 1500 watt 120v heater should draw about 12.5 amps which will work
FYI I removed the cover and visually checked the fusable link on the
T-stat/hi limit switch. It is good
Last time about 3 years ago, when heater blew for unknown reason
(maybe close lightning strike) it took out the heater AND the fusable
link on the t-stat/hi limit switch.
You can't beat the price anywhere for this common RV water heater
Here's a YouTube video how to change the element.
