The element is BURIED behind cabinets on inside of trailer in the WH.

To access in our 34 I couldn't find a way to do it without cutting cabinets and/ or removing toilet!!!

My old Safari 25 FB (2006) had gas only - The new to me EB 25 FB (2012) has both gas and electric. I wondered why the bottom space in the drawer/half closet unit was smaller than in the 2006, and after a little poking around found that the back of that part was held in place with magnetic clasps. Popped out the bottom drawer and could easily remove it. There was the water heater's electric element. So you might have a similar situation in your unit. Happy hunting!

On our 2001 Classic 30'er it's below the drawers next to the toilet. Close working environment but workable with some dexterity. Couple of screws and the front panel to the cabinet comes off providing access. If you do a search here on the forum there are threads with photo's and help. Along with access to the element there are 2 sensors also. High temp & Low temp. They are available and come as a set and are pretty simple to replace. Just difficult for large hands to get to. The heating element can be tested for continuity before removal. No sense taking it out unless replacement is required. A few years ago mine was working on gas but not on electric. It was the sensors and all's well after replacement. Standard precautions apply here when working with any electric appliances. A cheap digital multimeter will do your continuity test. I don't know about your application but in my case removal of the toilet would make things much more accessible. I did not remove it. In hindsight simply removing the drawers may also have helped. Try it.

Just finished replacing circuit board on our '71 Tradewind. Atwood 6 gal electronic ignition and electric. Tested circuit board with continuity tester and all circuits were dead. If board is out, neither one will work. Controls for both are 12 volt. Amazon much cheaper than local RV. Works great now. No idea what caused it to go bad though.

Howdy, Woody!
Hard to just let things go without an idea about how it failed... Say, you didn't habe a problem with your battery or converter did ya? A power spike could have popped the board...or maybe it just failed which sometimes happens.?

Hey Channing,

No spike that I know of. The only other thing was I had to replace the heater thermostat a few weeks ago which is also 12 volt. Coulda been some spike, but battery and converter are ok. Guess I'll file it under "I'll never know" and hope for the best.
