Question Hot water re-set?

Hi! Iím new to RVing although my partnerís family had a trailer when he was little.

We are wintering in a Zinger 320 FB while waiting for our new house to be habitable, and will eventually use it to snow bird in New Mexico. It has performed admirably through a northern Ohio winter with insulated foam skirting and a space heater underneath along with a heated water hose. During a recent cold snap the hot water heater ( both gas and electric) stopped working.

The fuses and breakers look good, there is nothing loose inside the outside access port that I can see. The water is flowing well.

It is six moths old, having been moved a couple of hundred miles. There shouldnít be any appreciable wear

I used to teach computer repair, so I know how to trouble shoot. I am a little embarrassed to say that I cannot find the re-set button. None of the documentation mentions it.

Can anybody tell me where Crossroads hid it? Or, if there is none, how to get it to re-light? Thanks, in advance!!

Need more info. What is manufacturer and model of water heater? There are about 20 ways water heaters quit. There are 2 different circuits, 120V for elec. and 12V/propane for gas. Selector switches on control panel, circuit board for water heater, corrosion, spider nests, bad ground, and oh so many more.

Hot water

Thanks for the quick reply!

I have a Dometic WH-6GA, WH-6GEA, or WH-9GEA. According to the manual that came with the camper. Everything inside the outdoor access cover is pristine. No sign of insects , leaves or any other bio-intruders.

Other than a period of cold temperatures, nothing changed at the time it stopped working. The interior control switch’s light up normally

Have you checked the receptacle that the fridge is plugged into for power?

Here is a link to a manual for your water heater : https://epi.dometic.com/externalasse...4379_81175.pdf . It shows a 2 amp fuse on the control board. Have you checked that? It is very unusual for both the 12v and 120v to quit at the same time so i would check that fuse as the control board is for both systems.
