Atwood water heater wiring help

My Atwood GC6AA-10E water heater tank burst so I bought a whole new same model one but two of the wires are a different color. The trailer wiring for the old on was Red-Green-White-Yellow. The new water heater wiring colors are Blue-Green-White-Orange. I'm not sure if the Red goes with the Orange or Blue and same with the Yellow. Can anybody here give me your expertise answer?

I have the same issue with the same Atwood model. I haven't replaced it yet; see it's available through Amazon, but am curious about the install.
It looks pretty straight forward, the wiring is my concern.
How were you able to resolve your wiring problem?
Any tips on the removal/installation?
Thanks,
Dave

Just a tip from someone who often swaps out modules without the manuals:


1) Photograph and write down the wiring and plumbing connections.


2) Pull the new one out of the box and put it near the old one before removal. Check to see where the wires, pipes, etc. tie in.


3) What other things should be replaced at this time? Gaskets? rusted hardware? Specific to water heaters: the anode rod?


Good Luck! And work safely.
