I fried my hot water heater element

Went to winterize the trailer (sadness) and decided to get a jump on draining the hot water tank before I even hooked the power. Well you guessed it, I didn't follow my normal winterizing routine and simply flip the little on/off switch to off in the hot water tank, and the switch was left on in the trailer, which I usually always turn off at the end of any trip. Hooked up power and realized later the switch was on in the trailer. So I've searched for the correct heater element and can not really find the exact part number for my model # SW12DEL hot water heater. I found this:

Are the heating elements universal? Seems like a good deal, I will certainly need the removal tool.

Easy to replace, should be fine. Iíve done it too, but you never forget to turn it off once youíve replaced it! Lowes and Home Depot carry them as well.
