water heater, what now

Ok, so i feel like a newbie this camping trip with our new trailer, yall got my heater issue fixed last night. Decided to go through everything today, turn on the water heater and it ran but not getting hot water inside. Double checked to make sure it wasnt bypassed i also opened the valve on the water heater hot water came out, let it run a good while inside and ice cold any ideas

Did you try running the cold water tap to see if hot comes out? I've heard of at least one new trailer that had hot and cold pipes reversed, straight from the factory.

Wow, yes that is the issue, hot water works on outside shower, but inside cold water is the hot water, WTH.

Looks like you have your first warranty item for your dealer to fix.
Enjoy your new unit.
Happy RVing,
Jeff

Some things like that are easier to fix yourself.
Instead of hauling it to the dealer where it will sit on the lot for weeks if not longer to get fixed.

Most things will be easier to fix at home then take in...

Reversed hot and cold water lines... Those Amish craftsmen are such pranksters.

As long as the inlet pipes are long enough if they are switch. If so, simple fix.
