Our water heater element failed in July just before going away cruising. I chased around trying to find a replacement and the only solution I could quickly find was a complete QL heater. Our local Volvo dealer told me that the element on its own seemed to be no longer available however if I paid for it in full they would order one and wait and see if it turned up!

    I decided to fit a Quick Nautic 25L as I couldn’t see the point in fitting a new QL that you couldn’t get bits for, The Quick fitted in the same space and was fairly straight forward to install even though it was 5l bigger than the original and as you said, the cost is much the same at around £299 for the 25L model.
