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.

Thing to remember is the cold line at bottom fitting is your feed line in to the tank, then heated water comes out the top line and fitting. Basically what you need to remember is that you want any valve wide open at lower fitting (cold) and also at any top fitting or shut off ,so hot can come out as required. Any taps in between those 2 lines need to be in off position. There are a few different ways to install the by-pass, so I can't tell which one you have without a picture or description of where they are, and style of valves, such as simple shut offs, or directional valves etc. If you can include a picture, great but a detailed description may do it.

Hott rod is 120Volt AC.
Check voltage supply for undervoltage, or reversed polarity, or tripped breaker.
Check that electric thermostat is set to 120 degrees.
Rotate thermostat temperature adjustment back and forth and see if you can hear water heater working.
Thermostats can be bad, or stick.
Check the ECO red reset button is not tripped out.
If tank was not full of water before power was applied, the element will instantly burn out.
Use continuity tester across bare element screws to see if element is good. Or use multimeter and test across bare element screws shows 29 ohm for 6 gallon, 18 ohms for 10 gallon.

1) I believe you can immediately elbow the PVC pipe.
There is a limit for how many elbows can be used between blower and termination, and limit is determined by diameter of PVC pipe.
2) Copy following link for venting resources and typical Rheem and Richmond power vent manuals, and diameter-elbow pdf from Bradford White.
3) Richmond is Rheem. Product manual will show specifications for venting.
Product warranty is voided if installation does not follow specifications shown in manual.
