Water heater must be FULL of water first. Be sure to bleed all air out of hot water lines all throughout the unit. Check water in heater by purging the PT valve at the top. (The one with the little lever). If no water comes out, there is no water in the heater. You can't heat water is there's none in it to heat!

Sounds like you have left the cold and hot water spigots open on your outside shower (maybe by the grey and black tank drains), It's possible to leave them turned on and turn off the flow using the shower head controls, however doing so makes the cold and hot water in the system mix. The result is exactly as you described- lukewarm water for a short time and then cold.

SOURCE: My hot water tanks turns on but no hot water. Their is a lot of air in the line

Double check that by-pass valves are in proper position, as well as any winterizing valve is in the off position. Some units have a winterizing valve and hose to put in jug for winterizing, that needs to be shut off otherwise it will suck air. Back of water heater- lower fitting is for cold water in, valve should be open, and top fitting is for hot out, which should be open as well. Any valves that may be in between those 2 lines such as a "t" between lines should be in off position. Keep in mind, water heater has to fill first before any good pressure will come out taps. I normally open bathtub hot tap because it\'s less mess and let it run until i get good steady flow from faucette, then do the rest, hot cold.

problem is there is an RV for your system. you will need to do the following.
Drain all holding tanks, fresh water and sewage
  1. Attach garden hose to fresh water fill and fill tank.
  2. Turn on pump switch and open cold water side of all faucet/ shower fixtures. Leave open until water runs clear. Repeat for hot water side.
  3. Flush toilet until clear water runs into bowl.
  4. Dump tanks again.
  5. Sanitize water system. use a water sanitizer

What do I do if my hot water is low and sputters in my tub in 2005 jayco flight 5th wheel?


Greetings and good health to you.
Ok, so I'm guessing by low you mean quantity and not temp, correct?
Does the cold water sputter as well? If so, most likely bad pump but we'll go with it just being the hot water for now.
Does the hot water act the same way on the other sink faucets? If not, the hot water is flowing freely without sputter, the problem will most likely be in the tub's hot water valve (knob) or the shower attachment. You can replace these rather easily.
If your hot water is low in quantity and sputtering only on the hot, then your hot water tank is not getting enough water to it which will cause it to be "low" and sputter as there isn't any water in there to pull from. If this is the case, we need to figure out what is causing the hot water tank to not have water in it.
Your pump is obviously working as you are only having issues with the hot water. Since using the hot water would normally use what hot water is sitting in the tank and thus pull in fresh water to heat up as the hot water exits. This would be the case if you are using the on board water storage and not hooked up to a hose for your water supply.
So, if this is the case, we need to find out where/why the water is not drawing in from the water storage to the hot water tank. First off, locate both tanks and make sure there isn't a valve on the water line that may be turned off or almost off. Check those water lines for any breakage or leaks. If not, if there are two lines coming out of the water storage, one for the cold and the other for the hot, see if you can notice anything in the water tank that may be blocking the "hot" line.
If all that is well, lets look at the water heater itself. I'm guess you would have noticed if this was leaking which is why I waited until now to bring it up. If you go outside and open the panel, does it look like it could have been leaking? Look at the plug (this is where your heating element is located) at the bottom center of the tank. Does it feel damp or can you see streaks going down from there? If unsure, hook up your hose to the water intake and turn it on. Watch the tank from the outside and see if it starts leaking. If it does, bad plug (heating element) easy and cheap to replace.
Once you see there is no leaking coming from the hot water tank, lets take out the heating element to make sure it is filling up. First shut off the water flow. You'll need a large adjustable wrench or if you happen to have that big of a socket, go for it. Remove the element. Water should start coming out as you unscrew it. Once you remove the element, water should flow freely out until empty.
Now, with the plug out, turn the water back on and see if it flows out of the tank. This will show flow is good up to this point.
Ok, so if there are no leaks thus far and the hot water tank is filling up when you hook up a hose, then we need to look and the connection line going from the tank to the rest of the faucets. Put the plug back in. Turn the water on again and follow the lines from the tank to the faucets looking for leaks.
Once you do all this, you should have an idea of what is happening where and possibly how to fix it.
Let me know how it turns out.

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!

How do you de-winterize 28DSBH


Connect the trailer to the city water supply, turn on the water and open each faucet until clean clear water is present. Don't forget the toilet and outside shower if equipped. Next reinstall the anode rod (suburban) or drain plug (atwood) into the water heater. Go to the back side of the water heater and close the valve on the pipe that connects the cold (bottom line into water heater) and hot (upper line out of the water heater) and then open the bottom cold water line valve and, if equipped, the upper hot water valve. This will fill the water heater. Open the hot water valve at the kitchen faucet. When the water flow is steady the water heater is full and ready for use. If the unit is equipped with a water filer, after all is flushed out, turn the water off and remove the filter housing. Install a new filter and re-secure the housing and turn the water back on. If you are using the fresh water pump, it is possible that the winterizing valve for the pump was left open. If so, close that valve which will divert the pump back to drawing from the tank.

Adjust water temperature


It is possible that there is an open valve on the back of the water heater which is allowing the hot and cold to mix. Locate the back of the water heater. You will see a water line going into the bottom of the water heater. That is cold water in and there will be a valve on that line. It should be open (The handle inline with the direction of the pipe). At the tope there will be another pipe coming out. That is the hot water out. It may or may not have a valve but if it does make sure that it is open. Then there will be a water line connecting the top and bottom water lines and it will have a valve in it. Make sure that the valve in this line is closed. That is a winterizing bypass valve. If this does not correct the problem let me know and I will give you more steps to consider.

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.

Electronic ignition hot water heater (6gal) lights but wont get water hot. The red light inside my RV goes off and back on after about 3 minutes. When I checked the unit outside, the pilot is lt, but not...


check to see if setiment has settled on the pilot....blow it out with air if it has. This issue comes up often with water heaters and rv refers. If that is not the problem and the pilot remains lit, but never increases when the thermostat is turned up, you probably need a new gas valve/thermostat.
