I finally got around to figuring out my rig's weight carrying capacity. Total gear and people should not exceed 1,324lbs. Took her to the scales on our way out of town last Friday. Full of fuel, full fresh water tank, me and the wife, weighed in at 14,300lbs. GVWR for the vehicle is 14,500lbs. I'm close to max but don't anticipate it being a problem.

New to this group, just picked up our ME last month and now I'm running all the major appliances and ran into a issue with the instance hot water where it would not come on. 1st time putting water in the unit seeing as we live in CO and it is now just getting warm. But my question is anyone else having any issues with their hot water unit? And has any one dealt with getting warranty work done on their ME yet?

My hot water heater worked the first two times out but last weekend the blower would come on but the burner was not lighting so it would just shut down and display an error code (E 1). Do you have the switch on the water heater turned on? My problem was with the proportional valve sticking so no gas was getting to the burner.

Welcome Bingwah1... I have had no complaints with the on demand water heater, but I think I am in the minority on JOF. But my warranty issues have been many and varied. I have had the alignment done twice, the slides re-aligned twice, the kitchen counter replaced, the sinks recaulked after a leak caused during the counter replacement and several other "minor" repairs.

Over the winter while my dealer was doing the other warranty work they discovered both my front pillars had cracks in them, so those were replaced as well. I am looking forward to picking her up this week and getting ready for the camping season.

Thanks for your comments.
Got my rig back today and the hot water heater was fixed by doing a reset of a switch that really is not very well defined in any document. I found only one YouTube video on thia but it shows where this switch is located very clearly. This I feel should be shared because it is such a pain to get into a dealer to do any work this h time of year.

bingwah1, what year ME do you have? Mine is a '16 and I don't have a reset switch. The vid looks like the older model tankless water heater. Is yours a '16?

Wow, these things are pretty heavy off the line. I guess its all that cabinetry?

My 2015 has the reset... I knew of it from other conversations on this Forum, and was glad I did while travelling in Tennessee last fall. Mine went out, and like bingwah1 noted, there does not seem to be any mention of it in the manual. I never would have found it on my own.

Yeah I read about the reset button also and looked for something similar on mine but the third gen versions do not have them.
