Hot water

Ok...so it's my 1st time with this TT and no hot water. First time since before winterizing. Valve under the sink (white oval) was, for what I'm guessing, closed. So I opened it and still no hot water. The heater is warm.

Should be 3 valves at the water heater: 1 on cold water inlet, 1 on hot outlet, and one connecting the hot and cold lines. The one connecting the two lines should be closed. The inlet and outlet valve should be open. I am assuming you have the pump on or are connected to outside water source.

updating your profile and adding your TT info will help with your specific model but I'd think your water heater is still by passed. Did you get any water out of the heater when you purged the air out of it?

Outside source. Getting to the valves will be a chore. It's an Eagle 328 RLTS TT

They will have to be accessed from the inside some way. There may be a false panel that needs to be removed to get to the water heater, and lots of them are not readily accessible.

Mine are in the rear storage compartment. Make sure your water heater drain plug is in then find the valves to see if the tank is bypassed. http://cdn.forestriverforums.com/for...1&d=1384081079

Once you have water in the tank, purge the air by holding the pressure valve handle open for a bit until water comes out. I hope you did not turn on the electric heating element with no water in the tank.

I found the valves and all's good. I looked for them but like most men, didn't look HARD ENOUGH per DW. Thanks guys. Btw..didn't have the heater in at the time. I just couldn't get water flowing. Thanks again.

Now that you know that, going forward always make sure you open the valves to allow the tank to fill BEFORE turning on the heater. It could and may already have caused problems.

Take it from experience, it only takes about 60 seconds to fry an electric water heater element.
