Potential water heater manufacturing issue

Just noticed why a failure occurred in my 2007 319bhd water heater on the electrical side. The felt seal that goes around the on/off switch was installed with the adhesive backing still on the little seal on the back of the switch. This Layer of thin plastic prevented the seal to the metal from happening. Water got in at some point with prev owner, switch shorted, burned up the hot side of the connection and damaged the switch. Probably could have been worse. He had been using the gas side only and someone apparently changed out the element to no avail. Nice element tho lol.

What would we do without an RV to keep us busy?

Indeed. It’s like another house in addition to the house I already struggle to keep up. I need a butler.
