Travel Trailer & RV / Camper Water Heater Service in St. Louis
RV / Camper water heater maintenance is an annual event recommended for all water heaters. The heart of the service includes flushing out antifreeze to reverse winterization, cleaning out any deposit or sediment that has built up since last years’ service, and then replacing any parts with corrosion. Depending upon the style of water heater in your RV / Camper , the anode rod might require replacement if it has corrosion. Some anode rods are made of aluminum that is designed to corrode as a sacrificial element protecting the tank. Most camper trailer and RV / Camper hot water heaters rely on both electricity and LP gas to generate hot water, which has significant implications for the service as this is not a do-it-yourself activity. While it might be possible for a dedicated RV / Camper enthusiast to do the service on their own, we always recommend scheduling RV / Camper Water heater service with trusted professionals that understand your RV / Camper and its service requirements inside and out.
