Video Transcript for Diamond RV Water Heaters DGR6VP Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the Universal Hot Rod water heater conversion kit, propane to electric. This conversion kit helps save propane in your RV or camper. It simply converts a propane water heater to electric operation and includes the necessary hardware to make the conversion.This is designed for use with a six gallon water heater with part number DGR6VP and it's designed for use with a ten gallon water heater, the part number DGR10VP. Both of those kits are available at etrailer.com. The product is UL listed and CSA approved. It comes with the limited lifetime warranty.

It's designed for use with Atwood, Suburban, American and Mor Flo water heaters.This portion right here, this is the rod, plug end and four foot cord. It comes with two different reducer bushings. So you'll use one of them and that depends on the brand of your water heater and you'll want to refer to the included instructions to determine which one to use depending on which water heater you have.This portion right here, this is the thermostat. It mounts directly to the back of the tank, it comes with a plastic thermostat cover and it is adjustable from 90 degrees to 150 degrees. It does come preset to approximately 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

You will need to drill a hole to wrap the heater cord, so the product kit does come with split wire lume to protect the heater core from contacting the drilled hole surface. I also recommend using some silicone to seal any gaps and make things air tight from outside vapors. Silicone is not included, so if you need some you can check out options at etrailer.comThe main power cord right here, measures eight feet long. It also comes with detailed installation instructions to help walk you through the whole process, step by step. So it's a really nice guide as far as how to get it installed, how to drill a hole, how to wrap the wiring, goes over all the wiring connections.

And you'll notice that at the end of each wire, it does have connections already pre-installed so they do make it as . Excuse me. As easy as possible to do the wiring for the conversion. I also want to mention that a power switch can be added to the unit. That item is sold separately and available at etrailer.com.That's gonna do it for today's look at the Universal Hot Rod water heater conversion kit, to convert a propane water heater to electric..

Fast delivery, just what I needed to get my water heater up and running again 641036

I wouldn't have purchased the product for my Suburban water heater (with anode rod) had I been aware that replacing the anode rod with the Hott Rod heating element WILL negatively affect the water heater tank (unlike the "expert" answered question on the etrailer.com website). After talking to Valterra (the manufacturer) I learned they are currently developing an anode rod/heating element to replace the current (unprotected) type heating rod for Suburban type water heaters that have an anode rod system. I may return the item or wait until Valterra sends me a replacement anode type heating element when they finally have it available (August 2019?). I'm disappointed that neither the manufacturer nor etrailer.com made this important information available at the time of purchase. It's a shame, since the product does appear otherwise to be of excellent quality. 664027
