It can be difficult-to-impossible to understand tone and meaning in written posts. I interpreted your 'hilarious' comment to mean that the suggestion to run both LP and 100 simultaneously was ridiculous. that's why I asked.

That's kinda what I thought you meant, but being the new kid on the block I didn't want to stir it up. For future reference, I would NEVER be that rude on this forum. Well, at least until I get a few fires in my profile!!

It was an option on that year. We actually were glad it had a hot water heater instead since it's more like what we're used to.

Yeah, If I had read some of the AH threads on this forum before I bought my coach, I would have been worried as well.
But, in 2 1/2 years, it has worked flawlessly, and I can service the burner myself in about 1/2 hour.
It has advantages over the propane water heater, and furnaces, but, is one very expensive appliance if it ever had to be replaced!!

"B Dubya"......I'm guessing there are many who didn't realize you could use both at the same time. Thinking about it, I don't think the water heater manuals even discuss it.

I remember reading it someplace. Said you could run both for quicker recovery.
Our AquaHot says the diesel burner is the main source but for normal use just run one or both electric elements, but that alone takes 2,000 watts each so have to be on a 50 amp shore setup to run both.

Back on topic, BARMCD, the electric element may be corroded or could have mineral build up on it. it is not too difficult to remove and check, how ever they are cheap enough to just replace and see if it helps your initial heat up and recovery time. Last one I bought at a regular hardware store, ran about $12 bucks if I recall. It was 120V 1500 watt if I recall, factory was 120V 1440 watt. 60W should only add .5 an Amp draw. The socket to fit was (which I recommend) i think was another $9 bucks or so.
