The effect of electron doping by the substitution of Rh for Ru on unconventional magnetic order in CeRu$$_2$$Al$$_{10}$$ was investigated via neutron powder diffraction. In Ce(Ru$$_{1-x}$$Rh$$_x$$)$$_2$$Al$$_{10}$$ with $$x$$ = 0.05, 0.12, 0.2, reorientation of the ordered moment from the $$c$$- to the $$a$$-axis takes place in all samples, while the ordering vector $$q$$ = (0 1 0) remains unchanged within this concentration range. The moment reorientation is accompanied by an enhancement in its size by a factor of 2.4, from $${mu}$$=0.43 $${mu}_B$$ at $$x$$ = 0 to $${mu}$$=1.06, 1.04, and 1.02 $${mu}_B$$ for $$x$$ = 0.05, 0.12 and 0.2, respectively. The continuous decrease in N$'e$el temperature $$T_0$$($$T_N$$), despite an abrupt increase in $${mu}$$, underlines the strong anisotropy in the exchange interaction in CeRu$$_2$$Al$$_{10}$$, and the fact that this anisotropy is easily suppressed by electron doping.
