Check the valves incase it is still in hot water bypass mode.

locate the water heater, at the plumbing end (inside your unit) you will notice a loop of pipes with shut off valves that will, depending upon position, allow water to flow through the water heater or bypass it. The direction that the handle is pointing indicates the flow of water through the lines. Follow the flow from your incoming source (fresh water tank or city water hook up) and make sure the valves are positioned to allow water into the tank.

Thanks, valve was located behind a panel that was closed to the water heater. Is this something that is done when winterizing.

Anyway, very much appreciate you help in this matter.

Water heater now working.

What the bypass valve does is prevent you from filling the water heater with antifreeze when winterizing. Thins way you only need about two gallons instead of 8 or so. What it did was trickle some hot water out of the tap then I want and looking at the bypass valves. You should be able to see small air bubbles in the lines which will allow you to see the direction of flow. I then labled the lines by drawing arrows on them with a marker.

The good news is the valves only turn 1/4 turn. When you change one valve change both. Since you are there now mark the valve or the line for "use" or "winterize".

First time out camping in June2009we had no hot water,took Kingston Fifth Wheel back to dealer and they had to change the mixer value for the hot water tank.We talked to another owner of a Kingston Fifth Wheel and they had the same problem.I was just wondering if anyone else had the same problem.The unit is a2008 and we purchased it brand new.Hope we don't have the same problem when we go to use the fifth wheel in 2010 .The dealer said the mixer value cost around $200.00.
