Check your propane tank to ensure you have propane in the tank, next make sure the regulator did not lock up. Also make sure you have plenty of 12v power as the furnace runs on 12v power only.

My camper water heater quit working. It has a Suburban water heater and when it quit working the reset switch did not light up. On/off does nothing. Do you think it is the switch or something else?


You didn't state if it was an electronic ignition type or not. You didn't state if it was AC + LP either. Assuming it is LP only and has electronic ignition, and the light is not coming on I would first look for a 12V fuse for the water heater. If you are lucky that might be all that it is.

The fuse would normally be located in the Charger/Converter Breaker/Fuse panel.

Beyond that you would have to start testing with a meter or test light to see if you have voltages to the unit.

It is common for the ignition boards to go out too. But those are a bit pricey. If you aren't handy electronically, have a meter, and a wiring diagram, it might be worth having a qualified technician troubleshoot this for you.

Can you get water in LP lines when filling RV w/ propane? Frig quit on propane,worked on electric. Had filled w/ propane two days earlier. mechanic found oily water in line; range still worked.


Yes water can do compensation build up in your propane tank. Some tanks have a drain pit on bottom reclaim propane and open the pit. If your does reclaim the propane and drain tank. If not reclaim propane and remove tank then remove filler valve turn tank over drain access water leave tank up side down over night. Put fill valve back on and mount tank. After lines are back on turn stove on leave on for 48 hours. Turn valves off and refill tank. Best of luck.

Heater fires up to temp but why doesn't it restart as temp. drops below thermostat setting?


It could actually be the thermostat, the circuit board, the sail switch, but no way of knowing without actually seeing and diagnosing it.

How to turn up the hot water heater


Unfortunately most RV hot water heaters DO NOT have a heat adjustment on them. Remember it is only (usually) a 6 gallon tank. The best suggestion I to use less cold water when mixing the water and remember to shut off the water in between soaping up and rinsing off. Google "navy showers" and you should find more info!

Need to know steps to winterize a 2001 Thor-Citation 23-R trailer. Or schematics of key points to address.


If you don't have a hot water heater winterizing bypass kit installed,get one before going any further.
Next, drain the water out of the hot water tank. Add POTABLE (not automotive) anti freeze to the water system Run run faucets one at a time both hot and cold, toilet and shower head until you see the anti freeze . Next, shut off the water pump and open the faucets. This saves any chance of cracked water lines. When you want to use the trailer again, close the bypass valves on the hot eater tank and run the pump long enough to remove the antifreeze solution from the system. Fill the water tank and run the faucets for a few minutes. Potable antifreeze won't make you sick so there's no worry if you don't get it all out of the system.

Hot water bypass


On the back side of the water heater you should see a water line connection at the bottom and one at the top. There should also be a water line connecting between the top and bottom lines. The bottom is cold water input and should have a valve. The top is hot water out put and may or may not have a valve, depends if there is a check valve installed. and the connection line between the two will have a valve. If you are wanting to bypass close the top and bottom valve and open the middle valve. If you are wanting to use the water heater, open the top and bottom and close the middle valve. Open the Hot Water on your kitchen sink and wait until you have a steady flow of water before you turn on the water heater.

No hot water flow through faucets


At the back of the water heater there will be a series of valves. One on the bottom, sometimes one on the top and then one in a line that connects the top to the bottom lines. Make sure the middle valve is closed and the top and bottom valves are open. If there is not a valve on the top that can be manually opened and closed then there is a check valve installed. This check valve will allow the hot water out of the tank but will prevent the back flow of cold water during the winterization bypass. If the valve on top is closed it will not allow hot water out. If the middle valve is opened it will allow the cold water to mix with hot water and defeat the purpose having a water heater. Close the middle open the top and bottom. If there is not one on top then the check valve is probably clogged or has failed and need to be cleaned or replaced.

Where is water tank drain valve?


Locate water tank, drain valve usually within a few inches of it and drain hose goes through the floor. Make sure to pull drain plug on your water heater or it will freeze up. Use a bypass connector to bypass water heater when pumping RV antifreeze through water system.
