It was easy to install but it leaked at the heating element and adapter flange. According to the directions you can't tighten the element more than 3 turns otherwise the element might break off. After tightening the adapter flange another 1/2 turn the leak stopped. It didn't leak till after the water heater was turned on for45 min., which increases the pressure inside the tank. Works very nice.

I will say this upfront, I am a girl with little electrical/mechanical experience. I got this to change the water heater to electric because propane scares me! Anyway, it arrived fast, I read the instructions and literally within 30 minutes had it hooked up and ready to test. Maybe I am lucky and had an easy to access heater, but it is very straightforward. I filled the water tank back up and turned on the unit (I upped the thermostat to almost 150) and when I checked back an hour later I had hot water from the faucet. Hot enough to mix with cold water for a decent length shower. Please check that you have an outlet nearby, because the only thing I can see tripping someone up is that the cord isn't long enough and you'd have to get an outlet put in closer to the tank (they do not suggest using an extension cord). I haven't road tested this yet, but from other reviews I feel confident all will be well.

My hot water heater was gas only. After installing this product I can plug it in and just leave it and not have to worry about wasting any gas. And pretty easy to install I love it.

instructions need to be more complete

Need to pre-warn customers as to the need to disconnect the gas line and loosen the burner assembly so as to make room to install the unit in a Atwood 6 gln models. Some may not remember to turn off the gas before disconnecting the line and may not remember to check the line connection for leaks after the install. Also need to update the instructions as to the sticky pad and the thermostat sensor. Instructions say not to cover the hole up but the new ones don't have a hole and it is confusing as to the need for the hole. I called about the lack of a hole and they said it would be OK. Doesn't make sense to obstruct the sensor but it seems to work, hope the guy was correct, as it's installed with the sticky pad covering the sensor. No, there was no punch out hole. Other than that, after 1 week on the road it seems to be doing what it is supposed to do.
