I don't know whether it was full or not, only speculating that if the electric element was on without water in the heater's reservoir, it only takes about one minute to ruin the heating element. Hope that this wasn't the case for you. From your description of the weird noises coming from it, that was just a concern. Hope it was something else...

Hi Casita Greg, it wasn't a strange sound--just that it was on. I guess it just does that, according to other posts.

The water pump on the Casita 17 I had was located right next to the water heater The noise you were hearing was more than likely the water pump not the converter.
