Setup at our new home for the next seven months. The burner on the hot water heater came on but I then switched to 110 Volts. We have no hot water either on propane or 110. The burner comes on for about two minutes then nada. Ideas?

There is a short wire with looks like a fuse in it unplug and clean all contacts. I have had this problem through the years. You can also try bypassing short wire and doing a direct hook. Hope it helps.

I was thinking the same thing, you might want to check and make sure it is valved in right as it could still be on winter bypass.

easy way to tell is too lift thePressure Relief Valve handle and see if it is pressurized and water is coming out as it could also be airlocked.

Doeh! Brain fart. It involved the bypass. Needless to say, with a red face, I did it. All is working fine. Thanks to all.

Art, if you turned on the W/H to electric without water in the tank, you may (probably) have burned out the electric element.

Art, Stan is absolutely right. Running the electric heating element with no water in the tank usually burns it out. I hope you had water in the tank even though the bypass was in the wrong position.

S-happens, figured it might be the by-pass. Easy fix and hopefully your electric burner isn't burned out.Pretty much seen and done it all over the 30 plus years I've been RVing,you haven't yet begun to see how red the face can beuntil you clean the TV antenna off the roof twice in 3 weeks. Second time 3 days after replacing it with a new one....lol

Oh sweetie was so comforting when that happened after she got off the ground and dried her eyes..... funny I didn't see the humor at the time... looking back now it really was funny stuff.

We bought a new Jayco 5er in 2006. Brought it home for the first time and my wife was directing me as I backed into the building where we keep our unit. She forgot about the storage shelf in the rear of our building. Made a pretzel out of the ladder. I'll never forget her face as she quickly started motioning me to pull forward. Like it would make it go away. Now when I back the cruiser in ; I sometimes say "Watch the ladder Please". She doesn't like it to much. But it's still funny.
