The Seward heater, like Rik', certainly are much cheaper than the others out there, but they do not tend to last that long. Some have (or at least had) a magnesium anode to protect the aluminum tank, but the one we bought did not have one. They make tanks that are larger than the one you are replacing so you could have whatever fits. There are more impressive units to be had but much more expensive.
Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).
