    Electric water heater noise -- hisses. Stops when switched off.

    What does it mean when the electric water heater hisses? I have been RVing for about six months (three in my driveway, three on the road). The noise is coming from the area of my pass-through where the water heater is located. And, when I turn the water heater (switch) off, the hissing...

    How to remove water heater?

    Help. Am I missing something? I have a 2013 Landmark Grand Canyon. I went to replace the water heater and found there appears to be no way to access the back so that you can disconnect/connect the hoses. The hoses are too short to let you remove the unit to disconnect them, but there is no way...

    No hot water - 2015 Big Country SOLVED!

    I have no idea what went wrong. We went away last week and came back Thursday night. Used the shower then and yesterday but now have no hot water. LPG tanks are full and the 12V and 120V switches are on, but still no hot water. I've checked the fuses and breakers and they are good. Any thoughts...

    Quality issues

    We recently purchased a new 2008 cyclone 3612. 1 of all, a cupboard door fell off due to the hinges not having long enough screws to hold it to the door. Then we had issues with the water heater. Our water started boiling out outside and heater would not shut off. It was a bad sensor. Now...

    Replacing Defective Water Supply Valve

    I have discovered that the valve on the cold water supply line into the water heater on my Prowler 29P RKS was frozen. No water supply to tank. Unfortunately, everything is plumbed using PEX. In order to access the valve, I had to cut the PEX and remove the valve and the 90 degree elbow...

    2009 North Trail 28bhs water heater bypass valve location

    First time TT owner and first post in the forum.... Bought a used 2009 NT 28bhs...love it!!! The water heater works, but luke warm. As I understand it, previous owners had the temp adjusted for a handicap family member so my suspicion is that the bypass valve is slightly open to bring in cold...

After about ten...

    Two water heater switches...

    Hello, my 2011 Heartland MPG 182 has two switches with a Water Heater label. There is one switch on the test panel, and when I switch it on it fires up the water heater. There is another one over to the right of the bathroom. When I flip it, it does seemingly nothing. Any ideas what the...

    Poor QA from the factory - Water Heater Woes...

    :mad: As brand new RVers, we've been pretty irritated with several things. Most of all is the lack of quality of the owners manual. To say it is subpar would be generous. However, the biggest irritation was with the water heater. I knew not to turn on the electric to the water heater without...

    Water Heater freezing?

    We don't keep the propane or electric turned on to the water heater. We only turn it on before anticipated use. My question is will the water in the water heater freeze iif the water heater is not turned on in say 20 degree F weather? Or would it be better to leave the water heater turned on...

    Plumbling: Possible water heater drain mod

    On the 26RKS the water heater is on the street-side of the front storage compartment. It seems like it would be trivial to add a water heater drain by an additional valve/hose at the water heater bypass. Is there a reason why the only documented/official method I can find to drain the water...
