Early model water heaters with 110 VAC heating capacity used a bolt-on heating element and a one piece Atwood water heater replacement E.C.O./Thermostat kit 90037. This 110 VAC system has an adjustable rectangular thermostat that is surface mounted to the inner tank and retained by a steel clip. The temperature settings are HI, MEDIUM, and LOW. If the thermostat is making unobstructed contact with the aluminum tank and it is set to the HI position, it should heat the water to 130° F. It will take longer to heat a tank of water on electric than gas. The heating element was changed in 1996 from 1500W to 1400W bringing the amperage draw down to 12.7 amps and allowing more cushion for the 15 amp circuit breaker that is normally placed in line. This change adds a few minutes to the heating time. There are 110 VAC aftermarket conversion kits being offered by distributors in which the heating element is screwed into the tank where the drain plug is located.
Current production water heaters with the 110 VAC heating option use a screw-in heating element, a separate pre-set thermostat and a separate ECO. The screw-in heating element is rated at 1400 watts just like the bolt-on element. It is an incalloy element and can be run for a limited amount of time in a dry tank without shorting out.
