SOURCE: Hot Water Heater in 1991 Pace Arrow RV is not working

If you look on the outside of the RV, you will find the vent for the water heater behind and access door. There usually is a drain plug and valve located as well. Generally they will be tucked away under the kitchen sink area with internal access as well. You will need to find where the valve that shuts the water off to the unit is and turn it on. Most times the water heater is either electric or propane. But sometimes they are only propane. Once your find the access door, you will know where the water heater is. You can also contact Fleetwood who makes the Pace Arrow to see if they have any information on your unit. Usually your unit info or trim number will be located on a little plaque right by the entrance to the RV. You will need this when you contact them. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: takes too long for hot water.

You need a recirculating line. You will have to hire a plumber to run a water line from the farthest fixture or to the fixture you are concerned about on the hot side and return it back to the water heater. this will cause hot water to constantly run throught the hot water line (via the recirculating line) and when you want to draw water from the fixture, you will already have hot water right at the line.
I know this works with standard tank water heaters, but it is a lil trickier with rinnai units(but very possible) if your plumber pleads the 5th and tries to sell you another unit call the Rinnai manufacturerand ask them how.

SOURCE: Electric Water Heater Out

Have you reset thermostat on the heater, it will be the top thermostat right above the element. It will have a red reset button to press to reset. They will trip causing the heater not to work till it's reset or replaced due to thermostat gone bad. Chances are you may only have to reset it.

Please go to link below with to get some very helpful information on these topic's. If you replaced everything but the thermostat or reset it that's all left to hold out power to water heater. The thermostat is a safety device to protect the home owner. You may have had a element short out to trip it.
It will take 30 to 45 minutes to start to produce hot water after power comes back on.

SOURCE: when gas switch on an atwood water heater is

It usually only lights when starting up on propane, or if it didn't ignite for one reason or another. Usually light off indicates working o.k. Are you sure the electric element hasn't been on and water is heated already? Carefully open pressure relief valve slightly and see if water is hot or cold.

I'm temporarily staying in our RV while our house is re-furbished. The water heater is only working intermittently. Can anybody help me?


RV water heaters are mounted against an outside wall. Go outside and look for a removable cover that has a mesh vent installed.
Open this cover and the water heater should be inside.

If the water heater is propane your propane tank may be low of fuel. Also very cold weather may not let the propane produce adequate vapor to fuel the water heater. A low level of propane can make this problem worse.

If the water heater is electric, you may have too large a wattage draw from other appliances, when the water heater is trying to heat. Turn off items such as hair blowers, AC, and Microwave when the water heater is on. If a generator is providing the electricity it may not have enough output. If shore power is providing the electricity you need at least 30 AMPs.

How do I switch from propane to electric on my RV water heater and refridgerator?


These units cannot be modified to use a different power source. You will need have to replace your existing appliances with ones designed for electric operation.

You would need to buy a propane hot water heater. Unfortunately you can not convert an electric hot water hearter to propane.

I didn't want to use either an electric or gas hot water heater so I invested in a solar hot water heater for my home. Best thing that I ever did as far as saving money. Once it is paid off then the benefits are lower utility bills.

Good luck,

Marty

Works on propane but not on electricity


Check at back of water heater where hydro wires go in to heater, there is usually a black switch on top or side of that box/cover that needs to be in proper position as well. I usually use a mirror so I can see for sure it's in the on position.

Red light on ignition switch not working


On gas, usually it may light momentarily when first igniting, but as long as it lights on propane, the light goes out. Only if there is a problem that cause it not to light, will it stay on.
