Question about Water Water Heaters
I have just moved into a house with a Patrol WH7 water heater controller and have no information on how it works. Please could anyone provide any help/advice... is there a manual I can refer to? I don't want to run it during the peak period in the daytime and just need it on for a few hours overnight? Also, can someone explain how the 'boost' works? Please help?

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: Water heater not heating water.
Hi, W/D here.
You'll need an electrical test meter to find what ails ya. The reset button was a good idea, and it may help. If not:
1. Disconnect the power to the water heater (Trip the breaker to "Off").
2. Check the electrodes where they screw into the tank. There are two terminals. Test for continuity. If either electrode tests open, replace it.
3. With power on the heater, test for power through each thermostat to the electrode and back. Replace any defective thermostats.
Hope that this helps you, --W/D--

Yes the faucet could be a problem. Try changing for one which you know is ok.
The long run of pipework - each bend, elbow or joint all have a reducing effect on the flow, maybe enough to matter with a restricted outlet. none of this can be altered except by renewing with larger bore pipe - expensive!
Also there should be a dirt filter in the mains water input line/pipe. Try removing & cleaning. Try also removing , reconnecting and then the hot tap [faucet]
The boiler will have an actuator valve which fires it up when a certain flow of water is reached. If the flow is reduced AND the valve is worn, maybe a replacement. Not sure about it's USA construction but in the UK [it's called a diverter valve] many have a rubber diaphragm which is cheap to replace
Check also if it uses a flow sensor switch
Had a look at the Takagi web site and there are pdf's of manuals
Overall I am still thinking that the main prob is in the flow.
Hope I've helped - come back anytime
