Speaking of the anode, here are two pictures of my anode after it was replaced. I checked this anode after 12 months of fulltime use and it was hardly eroded at all and I put it back in. These pictures were taken after 30 months fulltime use. This one now lives in the land fill.

Is this pretty much the standard strategy...turn back to gas during times of high usage?

I have the 12 gallon Suburban. We keep it on electric. We have never ran out of hw. Just 2 of us.

Note: My wife knows how to shower the navy way, unlike most women.

We run our 10 gal Atwood 24/7 as well. We also turn the gas on when multiple showers taken. Recovery is 10 times faster. Also, don't forget to flush it at least once a year to remove lime deposits.

It's standard for us. I take Navy showers and the Mrs. doesn't. I always have plenty of hot water, but we'll flip on the gas if showers have to be back-to-back.
