Check the outside shower valves. If both valves are open, (and the hose isn't hooked up or the water is turned off at the shower head), you'll get mixing of hot and cold at the other faucets. Usually mostly cold.

Thanks but that's not it. Wish it was. Both valves closed at the outside shower, inside shower, and no washer hooked up so valves off there too.

Did you replace the relay for the electric heater. Most of the time in our shop the relay is bad not the heater. The board controls the gas and the electric sides. Do you have 110 volts to relay, 12 volts to board. Since you have a anode it is a suburban let me know what model you have as some 10 gals have a blend valve can can be stuck.

You've found the water heater had hot water in it. The reason the gas wouldn't come on was it's t-stat was already satisfied. When you turn on the hot water and let it run a couple minutes. Is it as cold as the water coming into your camper? Check both with a thermometer.

I noticed same issue with labeling. Not correct. As for the gas not lighting I found my brand new Alpine had the ground wire at the heater was loose and not making contact. Tightened screws and heater lit.

So last night I decide to put some water in the fresh water tank so I could disconnect from city water since leaving in the morning. Plus when I get to the next site for just one night before home, won't have to hook up for water.


Got here in TN, and for kicks, made sure the hot water heater was full and turned it on. Went to dinner. Came back and you guessed it, hot water flowing from the faucet.


So, what could be different between being hooked up to city water and using the pump/fresh water tank that could cause my flow issue when hooked up to city water? Is the hot water bypass valve in play at all when using the pump/fresh water tank?


I may get to take one shower in this unit on this trip after all!

The water heater bypass valve should be in play on both city and pump. I donít have any idea why it started working except maybe you left the ghosts at the last campground.
