Problem with Camco Hybrid Heat

So I just bought the Hybrid Heat 6 gal. kit and I'm having trouble with the install. When I try to insert the heating element into the drain plug it hits the tank. It'll go in straight just fine, but with the angle created by the reducing bushing I can't get it to in without leaving an inch hanging out.
I have an Atwood G6A-8E and I found a couple posts where Rvers had used the kit on the same model without any issues, so I'm not sure if it's me doing something wrong.
Anybody had this same issue or have any ideas? I'm kind of new at this, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

The "angle" created by the bushing? The bushing is a straight (not angled) fitting, right? So why is it creating an angle?


I can't see the bushing adding more than 1/2" to the depth, and there is usually plenty of room for that much extra. Perhaps you could post of picture of the installed heating element? Might give us some clues...
