Either it is very warm where you are parked and your hose is outside in the sun if on direct connection, or your fresh water tank is nice and toasty (again because it is really warm out)......

OR the most likely explanation - they tapped into the hot water line instead of the cold for your toilet connection which wouldn't be a total shocker to me. Should be able to get to the connection from underneath - may need to pull off the rear panel in the front storage to see the connections. If you are handy with pex pipe it would be an easy fix and switch (probably extended a line from the shower or sink and picked the wrong one) - saves wasting hot water to clean your bowl. Good news is, it probably cleans the toilet better, bad news is it would promote more bacteria growth.

You could always use it to preheat your bowl before use.

problem solved

Thanks for all your replies, I found behind the access panel to the hot water tank there are 2 valves one to feed the fresh water into the hot water tank and another one above it, the one above it was open I am assuming this was done to winterize the water system, there is a T fitting off the top valve and one line from it is your hot water feed for the trailer and an other line feeds into the cold water, once I closed it all was good.

Errr??? It sounds a little confusing, however, I would hope there's a back flow preventer on this line! I can't imagine a heated, freshwater line with access to the hot water heater?

It just sounds Wrong!

How to add photos to a post
  • Click reply and scroll down to bottom of text box.
  • Click "go advanced" add text to message window and then scroll down.
  • Click "Manage attachments" A separate window will pop up.
  • Click "browse" Then select the file to be uploaded. Be sure that the photo is appropriately sized. 800 x 600 pixels (or smaller) and no more than 400K is recommended. Forums software will automatically reduce the size, but smaller size photos will upload much faster. You may select several photos to upload at the same time by repeating the last step.

That just looks like a water heater bypass in regular summer usable mode. That should have nothing to do with toilet water pressure..

Harley the pressure was fine the problem was with that valve open hot water was going into the cold water line, you wouldn't think it would but once I closed that valve all was fine, it doesn't make any sense to me because that line on the bottom is the fresh water feed to the tank

Gleb, first trip out last wkend I had hot water coming out the cold side of any of the faucets in my unit. Crossroads said the winterizing valve probably failed. Tried to pull it after unscrewing the plastic nuts but it won't budge. It's like the heat from the heater have welded the plastic barbs into the pipe.........
