my camper water heater trips the breaker. I changed the element. what else would cause this?
Asked by: Earl
Earl, two things are suspect, breakers go bad or there is a short in your wiring. An electrician would verify the voltage to your element and that the circuit is 120 volts. When I replaced my element I also checked my junction box and was surprised to find the screw on wire splices were bad. I had to run new wires. It’s one thing to replace the element, tracking down a short may take a professional electrician.

If the element is stainless steel, why is it black in color?

If the element is stainless steel, why is it black in color?
Asked by: MikeS
Hello Mike S, thanks for reaching out. This is due to a protective coating added to the end of the elements to prevent lime-scale build up on the elements and prevent them from oxidizing to the element heating up. As metals are heated stainless alloys or not the oxidize more quickly under extreme heat.

Will this fit a Reliance 6 10 SOMSK 10 gallon water heater
Asked by: Homeuser
Hello Homeuser, Thanks for reaching out. Because it is the correct wattage and voltage for the unit, it should fit. You would also want to make sure that the element is not too long to fit inside the heater.

Asked by: bob
Unfortnately, I am not sure what water heater you have so I am unable to tell you if this element would work for you. Make sure the element has the correct voltage and wattage for your unit and the length is correct.
