However, about 3 months ago, while on a trip, I plugged it in and the GFCI outlet immediately tripped, tried another GFCI with the same result. I tried a non-GFCI outlet and it stayed on, but since there was no way to conveniently keep it that way, I just left it until we returned home.
A couple of weeks ago, I pulled the heating element and it looked relative normal. I began researching what might be the problem on various forums and the Western Leisure website. After trying several solutions, I contacted them. Dennis was very helpful, returning multiple emails promptly and offering additional ideas. About week later, he had me pull the heating element from the water heater again, only to discover the element had completely come apart, the outer seam had broken open and it rusted from the inside out.
Apparently, the earlier models, such as mine, were not completely sealed at the factory and small amounts of moisture can work its way in over time, causing corrosion and eventual failure. According to their website they now take additional measures to prevent this from happening.
I have purchased a new element from them (hey, four years is a long time to expect anyone to cover an item) and will be satisfied if lasts just as long, but hoping it will last longer.
The reason for the low rating? Well.....it's slow. After installing I checked the water temp (after cleaning the heater, filling it, letting the air out of it so I knew it was all full) after a full hour and it had barely gone from cold to tepid. After two hours it was luke warm at best - but at least I knew it was working. And yes, I had the temp turned up past 125 degrees and I have the correct model since I have a 6 gallon Atwood.
So while it does technically heat the water, I don't think anyone in our group will want to wait the 2+ hours for it to get warm (not hot). It did heat it up overnight though. The problem is if it heats this slow, then my propane is still going to have to run if we want the hot water heater to keep up with usage during dishes, showers and whatnot. Maybe mine just isn't great? I got a bad one? I don't know - but I did time it and the results I had after 1 hour and 2 hours speak for themselves. If the package wasn't a piece of paper with all the parts vacuum sealed to it I'd probably return it. This is a lot of money for something that will only work in the morning after sitting on all night, but you kind of have to destroy the package to open it.
