Talking Thanks

Just got back from a weekend of cold water in our 2015 - 29MV saw this picture and went out and tried it and WE HAVE HOT WATER. I had even gone by the dealer where we bought it and they looked at it and said we could bring it back in 4 WEEKS for them to look at it. Hope this is not going to be what the dealer service is going to be like.

I put an Oxygenics shower head that I got a CW and I couldn't believe the water that is coming out. I have not tried the adjusting technique for the hot water. I will do that tomorrow. We are going camping this weekend so it will really get the workout.

Just got back from a 1 week trip to Lake Tahoe, CA where the nights are still 40 degree averages. My tank-less worked with no problemos ! I do want to get that Oxygenics shower head !

While we've only been out with our Greyhawk 31FS around 5 times, other than some learning issues the first time...we've been very happy with the tankless water heater in ours. Maybe we've just been lucky.

There is a lot of information here, some of it very basic. Maybe this would be useful to somebody at some point. Not having had a tankless water heater before but likely getting one soon, I found the video helpful.

Check the outside shower. Sometimes both the hot and cold valves are open and the handheld shutoff is closed. This allows cold water to circulate back into the hot water lines.

Well... We just got back from a weekend trip and I'll tell you, once the temp gauge was property set the WH worked flawlessly for us again.

Now, at first, the temp was set too high so that when mixing with cold water the system was doing the cycling bit that many here complain about. I personally think that's the safety cutoff doing that when the temp gets too high. The reality is that you turn the temp gauge down until the hot water when opened up fully doesn't scald you anymore...then you shower with just the hot water valve opened. If you need it a bit hotter...close the hot water valve a little bit...this increases the temp by forcing the water to spend more time in the heater...

We just got a Seneca FS and had the same issue with the tank less water heater not working on our first shakedown trip. Flame would come on, had hot water briefly, and then flame would shut off and not turn on again. After fumbling around the heater and consulting the manual, I determined that the paddle switch on the gas exhaust was getting stuck and was not resetting. The paddle switch has to move back when the furnace fan is off as a permissive for the cycle to repeat itself. The paddle switch is very delicate and has to be completely free from obstruction. In our case, the switch was touching the cutout through which it goes through. Have not had any more issues (for now) since I made sure the paddle switch was operating completely unobstructed.

Camping World in Oakwood is a joke, we do not grace their doorway. Bought our Jayco Seneca 4 1/2 hours away in Winston Salem, NC because CW would not come off their high and mighty price. Got a lower price in NC and better money on our trade in to. Ended up saving a total of 10 grand. Well worth the 4 1/2 hour ride. Freightliner on 85 in Jefferson, GA does any Freightliner work/warranty we need and my husband called Jayco and got permission from them for RV World of GA off 85 at the Hamilton Mill exit to do our Jayco work/warranty. We just have to pay up front for the work and wait for Jayco to reimburse us. Waiting on a check from them now for work done a little over a week ago. Stay away from Camping World have heard nothing good about any of their businesses.
