That can't be right --- but anyway, the photo ok of the Atwood tank is at top of thread.

Thank you for your consideration
Well, certainly, but it doesn't show where you put the new valve, or what positions the other valves are in now.

I felt the same way about inconclusive weirdness with checking out cold water too.
But I :

- checked hose was st ill at good pressure from house
- check hose for kinks or car parked on it
- cold water was definitely running before I started work o n the Atwood heater
- i only touched the plugs and screws at the heater in photos above.

I can see the new valve on the LHS of your photo, but it's just impossible for me to visualize the connections here. The bypass tube obscures all the connections behind it. I can't figure out what ultimately connects to the elbow with the new valve on it, or where it comes from. I'd need a photo taken from a much lower angle to "see behind" the bypass tube. I know this is tough -- I had to take six photos of my own WH before I had one that I was satisfied showed all the plumbing paths clearly.

OK, when I opened the photo into its own tab, I got much more detail. (I'm so happy mine is plumbed in red and blue pipe instead of all white.)

I think what I am seeing is this (image, properly erected). The red is hot, the blue is cold and the green is bypass. The hard part was seeing how the hot tube is connected between A and B, so if you just assure me that it is, then I understand the flow here.

What I would suggest is that you turn the hose feed on, then pop the pressure relief valve on the outside of the heater. That will tell you whether cold is feeding into the heater. I'm guessing it won't be, because regardless of whatever you have done to the heater, there is a direct blue path from the left side of the photo to the rightmost blue blob (above the heater) that feeds something and doesn't touch the heater at all; and yet you claim that no cold water is running anywhere. (Did you check the toilet and the outside faucet?)

I screwed in the new Check Valve so that the arrow is facing OUTTWARD away from tank.

It's crazy to me that there's now zero water pressure.
Please help - thoughts are much appreciated.
I assume you turned the water off to work on it. Are you sure you turned it back on?

Installing a check valve on the hwh won't have anything to do with getting cold water to the rest of the RV. It has to be something in the feed line. Is water on? Do you have flow at the inlet on the outside? All faucets no cold water? Toilet no water? If no, check where your cold water comes into the RV inside the wall at the inlet port - do you have water there? (Yes, you will probably need a bowl to catch any water).

If you've lost all cold water for some reason it won't have to do with the check valve. It sounds like you installed it correctly (arrow pointing away from the hwh). If you can't get water to the faucets or toilet it will do you no good to pop the pressure valve on the hwh to try to fill it - it sounds like you lost the water somewhere upstream.

As previously stated if the check for water entering the camper. Saying the check valve in the water heater stopped all cold water flow is like saying your hands hurt because your shoes are too tight.

My suggestion of popping the check valve was just to see if any cold water was entering the hot water heater or whether it was also starved out.

If you remove the anode or open the pope off valve do you get water coming out of the tank?

Also does the water pump provide water to the facets? Chris
