Things to Avoid with Your RV Water Heater
There are a few things that you can do to maintain your RV hot water heater on your own to try and save yourself time and money. Mesa Mobile RV Service wants what is best for all of our customers, which is why we want to give you advice on caring for your RV water heater.
Drain your water tank before the winter. This is one of the most common mistakes people make with an RV hot water heater. If you empty the water tank but forget to take out the drain plug, your water heater will not drain. Once this water freezes in the winter it will break open your aluminum tank. So be sure to check the drain plug and properly drain your RV water heater before the first big freeze.
If you are excited for that first trip of the season in your luxury RV, be sure to remember to open the valves in the bypass kit for your RV hot water heater. These are the hoses and valves that keep water from entering the RV water heater. If you ignite the burner without opening these valves then the tank will get too hot and it might melt a hole in your tank.
One last situation that you should watch out for is corrosion in your RV water heater. Mesa Mobile RV Service technicians have seen many water heaters that have corroded due to hard water. Getting an anode rod installed will help keep your water heater safe from corrosion.
Cost of RV Hot Water Heater Repair and Replacement
When there is an issue that requires more than a DIY fix, there are a couple of things to consider. Many times completely replacing your RV hot water heater is more cost effective than a repair. RV water heater parts are expensive and taking the water heater apart is an intense process.
