Howdy all! A couple months ago, while dry camping with shore power, I accidentally let the electric element run in my ho****er tank (Atwood GCH6A-10E) while the water pump was off. I've discovered since that I can't get hot water from electric source anymore. I'm quite positive that the water level evaporated down and exposed the element and blew it. So it works fine on gas for now. I'm pondering how hard of a job this is. Everything I'm reading says that it's quite the job. But is it? The element appears to be on the back side of the unit so it definitely has to come all the way out to get access to it. Can anyone share any thoughts or concerns with just jumping into this?
