When we are connected to the city water connection the hot water comes from the cold (right) knob. Any ideas? When on the fresh water tank the system works normal (hot on left cold on right).

Not sure what's up with that! Plenty of members here that will definitely help you out. But I would like to welcome you to the Jayco Owners Forum! Congrats on the new Eagle!

Thanks for the warm welcome. I"m puzzled also/ Our first trip was last weekend. No real problems but the hot water.

Do all the sinks act that way? What about the toilet, is it hot? I have not run mine off the tank but it is normal on city water. Cold right hot left.

Double check that your water heater bypass is set correctly and also that your outside shower (if you have one), it closed as well. I would then look under the sink there the pump is located and see if you can trace the pipes. In most instances, you will have the pump output, then a T going to the city fill - then off to the rest of the cold water. I guess this could happen if your city was connected to the hot instead, but wow - that would be a major mistake....

Is it possible the hose was sitting in the sun and the water in it heated up?

I checked the hot water tank by-pass first and it is set correctly. It does effect all the faucets. And the hose in the sun was lokked at but we let it run for a long time and made sure it was in the shade. I'll have to check the connection near the pump. It was our first outing the trailer is nice and worked out well. All the folks we camped with asked me the same questions you folks did and believe I had plenty of "let me look at it" helpers :hihi:
