Well the install is done. I will take pictures tomorrow. I ended up running a new circuit with outlet over to that area. Drilled through the floor and ran the wire in conduit. Turned out pretty good. Nice part is when I winterize, the plug is right there to remind me to unplug while turning valves to bypass mode. The anode is in the plug that screws in. It is very small though and I'm not sure on how effective it is. The Hott Rod heater element then screws into that plug. It'll be more clear tomorrow with pictures. I also installed the switch for turning it on and off without having to unplug it every time. The temperature is adjustable as well but is preset to 125 so we will see how that goes. My rig is still winterized as it is cold up here so it will be a few weeks until I can actually test it.

Ran the wires under the camper in a conduit over to the water heater compartment. Had to drill through the floor but sealed it up well with spray foam as well as caulk around the outside.

All in all it was a pretty easy project. Would have been nicer had an outlet been close and if I could have gotten up the wall with the switch but didn't see any good alternatives to what I did. Thanks for all the help and looking at the finished project.
