Added Electric Element to Atwood Water Heater
Previous owner stated the aftermarket electric water heater element caused the breaker to pop. I never questioned him on this, or what breaker, and never bothered trying it out myself since propane tank was freshly filled.
The setup is a rod in the drain hole, and electric cord plugged into outlet in adjacent wet bay. I plugged it in today for the first time and it works, or least heats the water.
Questions.... is the element constantly on or does it have some sort of internal thermostat?
Circuit is 30 amp so if both ac's are on and heater is on, could that pop the breaker?
Can I plug the heater into regular outlet on campground power post?
