Water Heater question

Our 5th wheel is set up "at the beach" in Long Beach, WA.
Water, Power and Sewer are hooked to shore power.

The Hot Water heater switch is in the "Wall Panel" (Either elec. or propane).
It is on Electric now and the RED light is on and NO hot water.
I switched it to off and turned on the Propane switch.
The RED light is still on.

Anyone know what I need to do to get hot water, besides call the repair man?>
Thank you
Mike Moore

Do you have the water heater set for bypass?? That is the winter position. Check out the valves by the water heater to be sure.

I have not touched anything. I came back down to the RV after being home for 2 weeks and found the red light on??

What do you mean by setting the water heater to bypass?? Could I have do that by mistake??
Thanks

No, not by mistake. You have to physically turn the valves near the hot water heater, like when you winterize. Is there any water coming out of the hot water faucet??

Yes, water comes out of faucet, (but it's cold).

No, I did not turn the valve near the water heater

Hey Mark;
I just re-read by book and it says that if you don't use the Water Heater for 2 weeks or more, you need to turn the water heater OFF, run the water in the sink for at least 10 minutes and then turn the water heater back on.

We did this and it works just fine, we have hot water, yeah

Thanks
Mike Moore

Do you leave your water heater on when you leave?? It's a good idea to turn it off if you are going to be away from the trailer esp if away for more than a day.

Glad you found your problem. Happy warm shower.
