This might not be much help, without more details, but there should be a valve inside the water heater panel (outside) you can open. Open the valve at the main propane tank also.

Make sure the water tank is FULL before you fire it up. There should be a switch inside the coach somewhere to turn it on.

If it doesn't ignite immediately, you probably have air in the lines. Light the stove and let it burn for a minute, then try the hot water tank again. Might take a few tries to get it fired up.

No manual for Keystone Cougar 2013 330RBK ~ not sure how to winterize.


There should be plugs underneath the camper to drain the water tanks. Remove them and let the water drain. There should also be a plug on the water heater, remove and let water drain. There is also a bypass valve on the water heater to divert water away from the heater, turn this to bypass. After the water has drained replace the plugs except the water heater plug. The heater plug can stay out. Fill fresh water tank with RV antifreeze, usually about 3 gallons or maybe a little more for larger RVs. Run pump opening faucets one by one till water is forced out and the antifreeze flows including toilet. When antifreeze is flowing out the faucets close faucets and shut off pump. When pump is shut off open faucets, the antifreeze may get slushy in very cold conditions but wont freeze and a little may drip out of the faucets. The water heater may still have a small amount of water in it but shouldn't be a problem if you leave the plug out. Make sure the blackwater and greywater tanks are empty, you can dump a little antifreeze down the drains and toilet to make sure the sink traps are free from water and the blackwater tank has antifreeze in it. Other than that just shut the propane tanks off and youre done. Try to leave a couple of windows cracked slightly to promote airflow and reduce condensation inside the camper

How do I winterize my 2015 Jayco Jay Flight 32 RLs


Go to an RV parts store for a winterizing bypass kit for the water heater. Use POTABLE RV antifreeze and follow the instructions on the bottle. Drain all the water out of the water tank. Install the bypass kit on the water heater if it doesn't already have one. Put the water heater in the bypass mode. Add the antifreeze to the water tank. Open every water faucet including the shower head one at a time until antifreeze is present. Do this for hot and cold on every faucet. Once that is done, turn off the water pump and open all the faucets. That's all there is to it. Rember... DO NOT use automotive antifreeze. It will kill you.

First time owner. Have tankless water heater. How do I de-winterize the RV?


De winterizing is easy. They use a pink antifreeze which is food grade. Make surer the water heater is not by-passed. This is sometimes done using furnished bypass valves so that less antifreeze is needed. You can flip the water heater pressure release after connecting to city water. Water will come out if it is full. Do NOT turn on the water heater until you are certain the tank is full of water so as not to burn out the element. (This is true every time you set up) Run all faucets until you no longer see pink and you are de winterized.

Can you turn on the hot water pilot light if water is frozen


No it shouldn't hurt anything, the damage may already be done. I would first turn off the water supply to the heater, and attach a hose to the drain and open it. Lighting the pilot will help the unit thaw. Once you feel it has completely thawed and drained, close the boiler drain and open the supply slowly to check for leakage before full use.
Good Luck

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.

Hot waterer tank goes on but no hot water


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!

TRYING TO RUN HOT WATER HEATER ON ELECTRICITY


If it is a Suburban water heater you will need to make sure that the power switch is on. It is located outside on the lower left of the actual water heater. Once that is turned on, make sure the breaker is on. If you do not have hot water after that it is possible that either the ECO is bad or the element is bad. If it is Atwood water heater there should be two switches inside the coach, one for LP and the other for electric.
