My Atwood RV Water heater does not allow water to pass through. It goes in the bottom but does not come out of the top. No clogs are apparent and the plumbing all passes water. I removed the bypass valve...


The fitting at the top of tank where line connects is usually a check valve, Good chance the check valve has blown apart inside and plunger is blocking flow through it. Either get yourself another or even use a short 1/2" NPT plastic or galvanized pipe nipple to replace it and you should be good.

I just bought a Jayco trailer with an Atwood 6 gallon water heater which works on both electric and gas. I was able to locate the bypass valve and made sure hot water was in the tank, however I only get...


Check your by-pass again. Cold water enters bottom fitting/line, and hot comes out the top fitting/line. Any valve in between should be closed, and any valve going in at bottom should be open, as well as open at top. There are a few different by-pass set-ups, so without knowing which one you have, this should guide you somewhat.
If you can describe what you see there, I can probably guide you through it.

Have a 2005 coach w/Atwood DSI-RV 6 gal water heater. Gas lights, heater fires and gets hot, but doesn't transfer the hot water through the lines to the sink faucets. jwmystery@aol.com


You need to check by-pass valve(s) on back of tank for proper position. You need cold open going in to bottom tank fitting, and hot open at top. If any valves in between those 2 lines via "T"'s, turn them to off position.

The hot side (top line) should have a check valve between tank and water line. I'd replace it. Be sure you install new one the right way. Stem, spring etc should be facing in tank.

I have a 1994 pop up with an Atwood water heater. I hear the water heater turn on when plugged in but no hot water.


Have you checked your by-pass at rear of water heater to make sure it's in proper position? If it's still in bypass, you will only get cold water from either tap. Cold water goes in bottom, and hot comes out top. Any valves in between those 2 lines need to be off. Let me know what you find, as they use a few different ways to do the by-pass.

Atwood. Will not light. Red light comes on and stays on.


A GOOD RV DEALER SUCH AS WHERE I WORK HAVE A BOARD TESTER AND CHECK IT FOR FREE. A DEALER NEAR YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT FOR YOU AS WELL. THE SENSORS ARE THE ECO AND T-STAT. NO, THEY CAN'T BE BYPASSED. THE ECO AND T-STAT WORK IN CONJUNCTION BY REGULATING THE WATER TEMP AND PROVIDING POWER TO THE CIRCUIT. THEY ACT AS SAFETY DEVICES.

If your lighting and not getting hot water then you have a valve closed or your by pass is in the wrong position, if it is burning on gas it will heat water

The first question is this
From the outside of your RV is the water heater square or is it longer than it is tall?

If it is square it is a Suburban
If it is longer than it is tall then it is an Atwood
Forest River mostly uses Suburban

How long do you let the unit burn/run before you try the hot water? From a cold start it will take - depending on the outdoor temp. & the gallon size of your water heater, 15 to 30 minutes for the water to get hot.

If you have waited this long then I would suspect the bypass valve is in the wrong position
