2012 25FB HW Element Replacement


The HW element in my Atwood GE-9 EXT has went out, and I've been trying to figure out how to replace it. I have the new element, and have figured out the element is is the back of the tank.

I also found the hidden compartment in the bottom door that allows some limited access to the back of the HW heater. BUT, I can't figure out any way to access the element to replace it other than sliding the HW heater partially out from the outside of the trailer.

I've used the search function on the forum, internet search, and browsed this forum as much as I had the patience for, and no mention of anyone replacing it themselves. We're currently in Yuma for another three weeks, but won't be able to take the AS back to the dealer in SLC until around the middle of May if I can't replace it myself.

Has anyone done this themselves, and if so, what was the methodology?
