Question about RTO American Heat Tankless Electric Water Heater
Richard at the company told me my water heater was built 5 years ago and must have been "old stock" since I bought it about 6 months ago. Upon further inspection I found a production date of 2012. It is a waste of time calling the company.
If you had a power surge at your home, and no more power seems to be going to the heater, you must make sure that none of your wires from the load center all the way to the heater are intact and all have been wired correctly and none are lose. If you must be very careful reading manufacturing dates as these dates are actually displayed backwards and the year is actually displayed as the month, you may in fact have an older heater, as sometime when these heaters are purchased by distributors they don't get to sell them until way after or they have had one in storage for a while when they decide to sell them. I have spoken to the guys at the factory and they are very informative, I don't see how they could not help you as I deal with them on a daily and we always try and help there customers, why don't you bring the heater in there service department is great it only takes 5 minutes to fix the heater. If you mail it in its only 24-72 hr turn around.

You need to get a real tankless water heater, I had one of this brand and what a waste of money, when you call the company they do not speak very good English and if you talk to Richard whom is supposedly the VP he is as dumb as a mule.

There should be access from inside RV to get to the back of water heater. Make sure you have the hydro breaker shut off. On the back there is a cover where hydro wires etc, go in to. That cover has to be removed to give you access to element. Once cover is off, you should see element down low. You may want to test for voltage at element, then check switch ( on side or top of cover) and reset at ECO, (push in on little reset in center of ECO ) just in case one of them was the problem, and save changing the element.Then carefully test for voltage at element terminals. If voltage there and not getting hot replace element.
