Heating element size?

Think I need a new heating element but what size is in a 6.2 gallon water heater?

Help me if you can!

Thanks, Kat

I suppose it would depend on whether you have a Suburban or Atwood. I suspect you can get the right replacement part by contacting your local RV supply shop as these water heaters are pretty much universal to all brands of RV's.

They are, I believe, all the same, 120v, 1400w. Some manufacturers call them 1440w or 1500w -- I doubt if there's a difference.

Is it the original water heater? Might be easier to replace it than spend a lot of time and money on an old unit. It's an easy swap that only takes a couple of hours.
