I don't know anything about your trailer, but if the trailer was set up properly and you have dewinterized your water heater would have just been emptied and not filled with any of the winterizing liquid.

As far as location, depending on the trailer it could be any where. It WILL have an outside access cover that will look something like this: http://www.adventurerv.net/suburban-...source=Froogle


The water heater should be right behind that panel. No telling where they located it inside but that should lead you in the right direction. If it was winterized there should be a bypass valve somewhere that isolates the hot water heater from the system. Hopefully it will be at the back of the heater. If not, it might be where all the water connections are on the RV.

Good luck and post back if you are successful or need additional info.

I don't have a rig like yours, however most have similar water heaters. If I understand you correctly you don't know where yours is so you can make sure you are good to go. On the outside of your rig there is most likely a thin metal hinged door with a vent in it. Your WH is behind that door. If I can find a picture I'll post one. Make sure your valves are closed and the anode or plug are installed. On the inside of your rig, could be in a storage area, there should be an access panel to let you get to the winterization bypass valve. Make sure it is closed so the water flows int the WH. Connect to city water and make sure water comes out of each hot water faucet before you turn on the the WH. Once you get good clear water you should be good to go. Then either turn on the electric WH if hooked up to city electric or propane if not. If using propane you should be able to hear it running from outside near that door. Let us know how it goes. Hope I was clear enough on this.

You all are have been a great sourse of information and needed advice. It has helped me locate the WH inside the unit and the panel outside. One I close the value on the unit will water pass in it? Should I wait till tomorrow before I start it after I get hooked up at the camp ground? Will let you all know who my first big by myself camping adventure went afterwards! Thanks again. I think some one would make s lot of money creating a how to do manual that would over ride the companies manual they give you!

With the bypass valve closed water will enter the WH if you have water pressure in the system and you open a hot water spigot. Enjoy.
