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.

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

What is the red light that has just come on, near the kitchen sink?


If you have a Suburban water heater, it may be the overtemp reset light. If you have hot water, don't worry about it.

Forest river manuals


Contact the manufacturer of the coach for their owner's manual. However, each appliance will have a separate owner's manual form its perspective manufacturer, i.e., Water Heater = Suburban, A/C = Dometic, Refrigerator = Norcold, etc.. There will not be a diagram of electrical or plumbing as a majority of the RV manufacturers do not publish that information.

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.
