Hot Water Heater door and type

I have a 64 Globetrotter. I am in the midst of putting in a new hot water heater. The old heater that was in when I purchased it looks like a Rheem cylindrical 6 gallon 110 heater. The back street-side vent was completely missing and simply patched with a piece of metal riveted to the sides with a ton of silicone. It looks like there is no need to vent the electric 110 volt H/W heaters. Is this true?

I was thinking that I would install a Atwood 6 gallon electric ignition heater. It will butt up against the side and I am going to have to build a vent. I am wondering if anyone has any ideas, hints, words of advice, that will help me with this project, specifically he vented door.

Thanks for any advice. Andrew

You use the door that comes with the water heater, only, as a vent.

No other vent is necessary.
