I watched your video. Thank you for sharing. You did a nice job showing the features and advantages of the Greyhawk product.

I've had mine half way apart, and there is no reset button. Had a repair man out while in AZ this winter, and he couldn't find one either. Believe me I have even used a mirror to see if it. behind something, nada! What model no. is yours?

Man, it's in storage, but I should have it out this weekend to do a little work on it. Will take a look and let you know! All I know is they told me all the same things. And, all I had to do was reset it. Who knows!

Took two of the grandkids (ages 9 and 12) for a weeklong trip. After a short description on how to use the tankless WH, both showered without problem.

I have a FW but you shouldn't hear the water pump kick in when you turn on any valve if you have everything set up properly for a "city" water connection. Maybe the MH's have better water pumps that you can's hear so easily. I know that in my FW that the flow is really low when on the water pump.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks in advance,
We had a tankless heater in our Jayco Skylark. Had the same problem as you have. I was also using a Pressure regulator. The pressure regulator was the problem. My Campground owner stated that their water presssure was low to start with and I wouldn't need to use a regulator. Removed it and "Voila !" Works great !!! I would suggest checking with the Campground to see how much pressure they run ? We now have a Greyhawk 31DS. Haven't used the water heater yet ? We'll find our soon ???

Rarely use a pressure regulator any more. I have a pressure gauge that I use to check the campground pressure. Usually, it's somewhere between 30 and 40 psi. If the pressure is high, then I do have a Watts pressure regulator that I hook up. Its very unrestrictive, but still slows the flow slightly. When I was fighting through my problems, Jayco instructed me to stop using the regulator. They stated that their systems are tested to 100psi, and its' really not a factor. I got that in writing to be safe.

Sure have had some problems with the on demand hot water heater. The outside temperature has a direct effect of the water heater. I find that I adjust the temperature at the bathroom water heater thermostat so that I do not have to add any cold water. This has been working well for us. As I said, if it is colder outside, you may have to adjust the temperature to a higher setting. It is a pain but once you get used to it, it works okay.

There is a reset button on all of the on demand water heaters. however, they are not always in the same spot. Look for a very small button somewhere near the back of the water heater and push it. You should now be able to work the water heater.

Got the RV back from the dealer today. The WH had a couple of bad contacts. they fixed them and it seems to work AOK, for today anyway. I asked him and the service tech who worked on it to show me this "reset button" They said mine doesn't have one??? So I hope all is well.
