That question comes up from time to time.... and it would be nice, but there are so many differnt parts that would need to be changed that it is just not possible to do it in a way that would be cost effective...

You are better off selling the one you have and then buying the other...

It would be cheaper to sell that one and get an electric Dryer. Heating systems are different and it would be very expensive to convert it.

How to change a envirotemp gas water heater into a.electric water heater

Dear Buffie,
You cannot change a gas water heater into an electric water heater, nor can you change them the other way around.
They are manufactured differently.
If, however, you are getting rid of the gas one and want to know how to hook up a electric water heater in it's place, please ask the question that way.
God bless your efforts.

My 2003 dryer was switched over for gas, and now i need to swithc it back to electricity. how do you do this?

You cannot do that with out changing the complete dryer unit.
Dryer are built specifically for either electric or gas...they had to change the dryer to switch it and you will need to get a new dryer to change back.

Wont start been sitting changed gas fuel filter ok changed fuse and new fuel pump runs on either

if it aint gas its electrical. But if its been sitting for a long while you may need to purge the fuel injection system. the injectors maybe all gummed up from the old gas. Is it getting gas to the plugs? Check the plugs to see if they are getting gas. if not then its fuel problem but if they are then its electrical. hope this helps you out. let me know.

Will my gas boat fridge work with out power

Power to drive a gas refrigerator comes from one of two places. Electrical or LP gas. That is if your system is dual powered. It must be shifted over to gas if the electrical is turned off or disconnected.
A separate thermostat controls the gas end and an electric thermostat controls the electrical end. You must manually change the operating mode from one to the other. When in the gas mode no electrical power is necessary.
