You didn't make a note of the way they were hooked up before?

Expert:  Randall replied 1 year ago.

Are you sure that the old one wasn't an Atwood model?

The colors you mentioned as being on the coach are Atwood colors.

I will opt out of this as I have to get to work and won't be available until later this evening. I have my own RV shop. Hopefully, another tech here will jump in soon.

Expert:  Randall replied 1 year ago.

I see nobody picked up on this..............so I will try to continue here. I am adding a link to the Atwood Water Heater Manual and see the wiring diagrams towards the back. Orange is a color they use. And one way you might tell is to look at the switch inside. Does it say "Atwood" or "Suburban" on it? http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/atwoodwaterheater.pdf
