I make up tags to put on things like the A/C, warning not to turn on until cover is removed, and cover the water heater electric/propane switch and water pump with a tag warning not to turn on while it's winterized.

Don't really need a tag, just need someone to communicate. Last fall someone winterized my camper and didn't tell me. I was expecting them to but they were supposed to call me first which they didn't. A few days later when I went to the camper to do the final cleaning, I turned the power on to the water heater, which I always do when I get there. After that, I went to use the bathroom and saw the pink antifreeze in the toilet. I immediately turned the water heater power off but it was too late as I found out this spring. Fried the element. I attempted to replace it but I can't get it to stop leaking around the rubber gasket. I only tried once and will make another attempt this week. Lesson learned the hard way. The elements are only $16 but it could have been used elsewhere.

I have to say, they sure didn't make it easy to get to. There is no false panel persay..just the side of the cabinet. Pull gently and get access. But I can tell you..it doesn't come away easy. I'm gonna have to devise my own panel and make it just a tad easier.

On my 2007 Eagle, there are 4 screws holding a wooden panel in place. The panel is about 2 foot by 3 foot. Once that's out, the water heater is fairly accessible.

Just purchased a used 2004 Jay Feather 25E Access to water heater is very easy to get to but this is what happens when someone fails to either properly winterize or drain the heater for the winter.

Never seen one split that way but it looks like a Halloween monster!

Can you see any water damage from that spill?

Yes the underside is very soft in the area under the split. The bad is it has to be replaced. The good is I am able to do the work, buy a new heater on line and am going with a DSI heater. Just need the switch as the wiring is already there. Was able to check out the rest of the plumbing and surprisingly there was no other damage or leaks.
