Looking for some answers for a few questions regarding our new Jayco White Hawk 25DSRL Summit Edition TT. We went over most of the features of the trailer when we bought it, but now that we are actually parked, hooked up and practically living in it now, some questions regarding the hot water heater came up.
The TT came with an Atwood GC6AA-10E (Gas/Electric) 6 Gallon DSI Water Heater.
So we are hooked up and as we enter our TT, there is a switch console door on the shelving to the right, with a mirror and keyholders. Behind the switch console door, there are a couple of switches that say:
Water Heater - LP Gas
Water Heater - Electric
And there is a LED between the switches that say DSI/FLT.
Sorry for my ignorance but here goes:
Since we are hooked up to city electric, do I still need to turn on the LP Gas Switch or does the electric switch work without having to turn on the LP Gas switch? The TT Manuals really do not go over that switch console very good
I had them both on the first day we hooked up and it appeared that we had hot water, but not much. It did not last long. We are also hooked up to city water, so no fresh water and water pump needed. I had them on all day yesterday and the hot water did not last very long. Whenever I turn on the hot water faucet in the kitchen and bathroom, it starts out cold, then gets warm, then hot. Question is, I do not know how long it will last. It is a 6 Gallon tank, so you figured it would be enough for a quick shower. It wasn't.
So I turned off the LP Gas Switch just now and just kept the Electric switch on. There still is some hot water, bit the true test will be when my better half comes home and wants to take a nice hot shower. We will see!!!
Oh, what does the DSI/FLT LED mean if it is on/off, are there different colors? Right now it appears to be off, but the Water Heater Electric switch is on.
Any comments, suggestions, ideas, tips are welcome.
