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: my bosh water wizard 10P pilot light keeps going out.

Very possible the thermocoupler is no good. The thermo coupler is that bulb that is in the pilot flame. It controls the main valve It's not expensive and fairly easy to change out.. Make sure you get no dirt in the cspillary tube hole.brass screw end. The bulb must be just in the flame tip when adjusting. Good Luck, Ned-

SOURCE: Water Heater Keeps Going Off

Modlara, it's partially true. There is a flow control valve in the heater. In case the intake is too cold or water usage is too high this valve reduces flow volume to maintain output temperature. But not shut off the flow entirely. Too bad, 063 does not come with a remote control, otherwise it could tell you what went wrong. My guess is either the air intake or vent are some how blocked. The heater is having problem generate enough heat to keep up the temp. so the flow control valve kicks in.

What is the outside temperature? If it it is below freezing, you might have a frozen pipe. Using a plumber torch heat up the pipe, if it works, replace the insulation using a heavier layer.

Hi my vulcan gas hot water service isn't getting hot enough anymore? please help me?


check first if you have good water flow to and from heater. lift pressure release valve on inlet and allow few sec to flow, same with outlet hot water safety valve.

remove front cover from the heater, you should see your gas connection and thermostat knob.

check if gas is burning evenly and on whole surface, check for leaks on the heater and on the lines to and from the heater.

if you did not find any faults, no leaks, safety valves work correctly, check thermostats settings,

wind it down to minimal, then turn it to about 1/4 value (you did not specify model but this should do, widening arrow or numerical values ar self explanatory), lift hot water safety valve for few seconds, then open any hot water tap (faucet if you are an american...) and check if gas ignites and burns.

set thermostat to about 2/3 value and again, lift hot water safety valve for few seconds, then open any hot water tap. check if gas ignites and if water is sufficiently hot, if too hot - wind it down to say 1/2 way, if too cold, wind it till resistant and then back off a bit, DO NOT EVER LEAVE VALVE OR THERMOSTAT ON MAX!.

if none of these help - you need either, change the thermostat or heater itself.

if works - you solved the problem, close the tap, close the cover and use the system as you normally do.

i am always recommending use of insulation on the hot water system, it saves heaps of money over the life of the system.

hope this will help you - do not forget to vote... :-)

Shuts down and needs to be restarted


Have you tried new batteries? Mine lighted fine but would then go out. The batteries provide the spark but they also keep the gas valve open.

How to clear Major plumbing clogs


I am assuming that you are referring to a calcium or rust build up in the water heater.
If you are having this issue you will need to turn off the water to the heater. You will need a garden hose, access to a outside water soucre, cold water is fine.
Shut off the gas or power to the hot water heater before starting.
Now you will need to place the garden house on the drain fitting on the water heater, placing the end of the hose outside and lower than the drain valve. Open the valve and drain the heater, you will need to open a hot water faucet to help drain the heater. I don't suggest opening the TPR ( Temp Pressures relief )valve due to the fact that they sometimes leak or don't reseal after opening them.
Hopefully the drain valve is not clogged, you should hear and see water exiting the garden hose.
If you are not getting any water from the drain valve you are going to have a challenging task.
If no water is coming out, my recommendation is to get the required tools to remove the hot water line from the top or side or the heater, also a few towels to soak up water A bucket is helpfull also.
remove the hot water line, then you will have to use a small hose to siphon the water from the tank. Once the tank is empty you can then remove the drain valve and replace it.
once you have replaced the drain valve you should ensure that it's closed and use a Gallon of CLR. Poor this into the water heater through the hot water outlet where you removed the pipe from. Now make sure the faucets are closed and replace the hot water line. You can now turn the water back on to the water heater.
After a few minutes open a hot water faucet to let out any air until water flows out, than close the faucet.
Let the water heater set for a few hours, then drain the tank!
when the tank drains, close the drain valve again and refill the water heater. Once again open a a hot water faucet and let the air out till the water heater fills. Again let sit for a hour.
At this point open a hot water faucet at the farthest point from the heater and let the water run for 5 min. , than close it and move to the next closest faucet and repeat until all faucets have been opened and run for 5 minutes.
If you still have a slow flow in a faucet, you may need to repeat the CLR step.
I also suggest that you remove all faucet screens and clean them.
If you still have a clog than you are going to have to remove or replace a piece of water line in the house. The blockage may be hard to find but if you have access to most of the pipe or it's visable you may be able to hear the blockage with the water on. Otherwise this will result in using some water line taps and a pressure guage to find the blockage.

Last year we had all the siding on our tv, trailer, replaced due to hail damage. When we finally got our trailer back from the rv repair shop we have had nothing but problems with our Atwood hot water tank...


Immediate danger!
You have a gas leak.
Propane is heavier than air and will settle on the floor.
The floor can be covered and ignite and you will not smell it while standing or sitting or laying in bed.
Absolutely open the door and leave trailer. Turn off the gas to the heater if the shut-off is outside.
Possibly you have a bad gas control valve. This should be repaired professionally.

Only about a cup of hot water will come out, then it gets cold.


You need to check 2 things. First, go outside and carefully open pressure relief valve at top of tank,(careful in case hot water spurts out) and make sure there is water in it. Second, look at back of tank inside RV and check your by-pass valves(s) for proper positioning. Cold water enters the water heater at the bottom fitting, so that valve has to be open, as well as leaves water heater at hot fitting at top of tank (the highest fitting) so that valve as well needs to be open. Any valves that may be in between those 2 water lines need to be closed. I am assuming that the heater starts runs, shuts down etc, just not running any hot water through hot side of taps, correct?

Water just gets luke warm on propane or electric. has electronic ignition, do i need circuit board? Atwood 6 gal. tank


Run it on propane and let water heater go through a heating cycle, and when it shuts off, CAREFULLY , pull the lever on the pressure relief valve slightly and see how hot the water feels there. If it's hot there, then it's more than likely a problem with your by-pass valve(s) at the back of the water heater. Either in the wrong position, or faulty, and allowing hot and cold to mix. If in doubt which one it may be, you may be able to remove by-pass set-up completely, depending on what system you have. What the ultimate goal is would be to attach your incoming cold line directly to bottom fitting of water heater, and outgoing hot line, to the top. Not unusual in some systems for one of the shut-offs in between the 2 lines to stay partially open, and allow cold to mix with hot, thus -warm only. If it's not hot at pressure relief valve, then I suspect a faulty thermostat, but that would mean they both (hydro and gas) would have to be faulty which is unlikely.
