The coffee maker in the house broke so I went out to get the single serve K cup coffee maker out of one of the cabinets. While I was in the Bullet, checked for any visitors with negative results. Looking forward to spring as most of you are as well, to get out there camping again.

Pics for the Solar Suitcase and Plug.

Just the ones off of Amazon.com, but I'll post them here for you. Anxious to try this out in the spring or summer.

Today I pulled out about 3lbs of silicon in the water heater door area and placed a piece of eternabond tape and a little dicor to the area and now it shouldn't leak in the cargo area when doing the maintenance on the water heater A couple of weeks ago we were at our favorite RV park and noticed the pressure relief valve leaking and that 3lbs of silicon did not stop it from entering my carpeted cargo area. This was a simple fix and weather was a perfect 72* today.

I hope you also replaced that dripping valve. My history with those valves, including on the S&B hot water heater and baseboard HW heat furnace isn't good. Once you open one to speed up draining the system, they often start to leak, You can match the valve on ebay or Amazon plus Home Depot for a lot less then an RV shop.

I burnt up the original electrical element a few weeks ago by turning it on with no water in the water heater. Ordered what I thought was the replacement off of amazon. Come to find out, what I ordered looks like the original, but it's about 3-4 inches shorter. I installed it anyway and I didn't seem to do anything at all. I was going to google the numbers that are printed on the original element later today to see if I can't find an exact replacement.

No big rush as I can't still run it off LP, and my next camping trip won't be until late April / early May.

It sounds like you may have installed a 220 VAC element. It will get "half as hot" as a 120 VAC element. What you're looking for is a 120 VAC 1100 watt element with the correct "mounting base" and length. It's pretty easy to match up the element at Lowe's or HD in the plumbing section. Just be sure the wattage and the voltage are the same: 1100 watts and 120 VAC. Usual cost is about $7 at the big box store and about $12 at ACE or TruValue.

ADDED: I posted incorrect wattage above. According to the Suburban water heater manual, it's a 120 VAC 1440 watt element. The 120 VAC 1500 watt element at Lowe's or HD will work. Amperage at 120 VAC for 1440 watts is 12 amps and 1500 watts is 12.5 amps. Both will work properly on 14 ga Romex and a 15 amp circuit breaker.

Thank you kindly for the info. I didn't know Home Depot or Lowes had these parts. It will be nice to be able to walk in and compare so I know I'm getting what I need instead of ordering off the internet.
