Hot water heater

Hi Everybody
Want to thank you in advance for your input to my question.I just got a 2008
Passport 245rb,and since I am new in RV life, I cannot find a thermostat for
the hot water heater.The heater is gas/electric with an auto igniter but I
cannot find a thermostat neither on the hot water heater or inside the trailer.
Please note the trailer did not came with any owner's manual and the sales
person has not come up with anything.
Thank you.

The temperature cannot be regulated by means of a thermostat. The temperature is preset and cannot be adjusted. The Keystone Owner's Manual will tell you very little. Go online and download the manuals for your individual items if they were not included in your "package".

Most RV WH's do not have an adjustable thermostat.

Please don't take this the wrong way but you can always turn on the cold water tap to make the water less hot.

Just to ask You if You have looked for the elect.switch in side the water heater door outside if You have one Look behind the propane burner tube left side small switch if You drain the h.w.tank make sure the switch is off or You will burn out the element if You plug in to shore power OK Bushman
