Okay, so I am about to ask a really dumb question....and I hope I'm not about to make myself look like an idiot....do I need to be hooked up to power for my water heater to work....?? Because I haven't been. I was just trying to run the propane water heat, while not hooked up to any power.
But, here is an update, I FINALLY got the old heating element out, and put the new one in, then fired up my ELECTRIC water heat and finally got hot water!! I'm ecstatic, because we leave for a 3 day camping trip in about 5 hours. I'm still a bit frustrated that I don't know how to get the propane water heat going, just as a backup...but it's not a huge deal at THIS point. Thanks for all the help and tips.
