hot water tank

I have a 2012 Crossroads Slingshot. Since I had this (new) I have never had a use for the Hot Water tank. Recently I have now, but I cannot figure out how to make it work completely. I cannot fill it up or heat the water.
What is the EXACT procedure. The instructions do not include what valves to turn or where they are. I cannot find them. According to the owners manual all valve are on the outside, but they are not there.

Sounds like you don't have the by pass valves in the correct position.
Here is a picture the shows how things should be.



A couple links for you to do some reading.

hot water and light

I found where the panel is to see the hot water tank, but your picture does not resemble mine. Also, how are the pot lights changed? Attached are pictures of them and the hot water controls and tank and valves. And light.

Your set up is identical to what LLoyd posted. put the 2 white valves by the tank in the "horizontal" position. (they are in the vertical now ,that is the bypass mode )

Bottom line - all valves should be open (valve handle points in line with the pipe) except the bypass valve. It is easy to find, it is the one that is red on one side, and blue on the other. You normally don't want hot and cold meeting. As a result, it should be closed, i.e. valve handle perpendicular to pipe flow. Then run city water from the hot faucet until you get nice flow with no air bubbles. Then, turn on gas or electric. I prefer gas because it is faster, but campsite electricity is included in the cost of the site.

I think you also need to turn the valve for the water pump anti freeze suction line to the other position...

SleepyT, you are right! Our new camper has one of those, and I didn't know what it was for. I just thought it was to prime the pump. Thanks, I've learned something, too!

The light that is out is another issue.How does it come out to be changed? I turned the light a little, but is stops at a half turn. There is no mention in the manuals about how to change a light blub or LED.

Welcome to the forum. I have the same lights above the tv. The lens are held in place by tight spring clips. Just grab the lip of the lens and pull down. The lamps just plug in. Hopes this helps. Also follow the other posts about the hot water heater and you should be up and running.
