Check at back of water heater where hydro wires go in to heater, there is usually a black switch on top or side of that box/cover that needs to be in proper position as well. I usually use a mirror so I can see for sure it's in the on position.

I'm temporarily staying in our RV while our house is re-furbished. The water heater is only working intermittently. Can anybody help me?


RV water heaters are mounted against an outside wall. Go outside and look for a removable cover that has a mesh vent installed.
Open this cover and the water heater should be inside.

If the water heater is propane your propane tank may be low of fuel. Also very cold weather may not let the propane produce adequate vapor to fuel the water heater. A low level of propane can make this problem worse.

If the water heater is electric, you may have too large a wattage draw from other appliances, when the water heater is trying to heat. Turn off items such as hair blowers, AC, and Microwave when the water heater is on. If a generator is providing the electricity it may not have enough output. If shore power is providing the electricity you need at least 30 AMPs.

IS GAS OR ELECTRIC. HOW DO I SWITCH TO PROPAIN ONLY.. WHERE DO I TURN POWER OFF AT


You must check the manual if it can use propane. If it is possible, you will need to make some adaptions to accommodate a propane feed. Gas and propane work on different pressures.

How do I change a r.v propane water heater to a 55 gal electric appartment size water heater


Changing out the water isn't difficult, but an electric heater needs a lot of electricity. Doing the wiring is going to be the hard part.
The plumbing is easy. Cold water in, hot water out. Two connections. Cap the propane connection.....

I have an on/off switch inside the camper and outside the camper where water heater is located. does this mean i have a propane/electric water heater?


Most likely if you have a switch that just is on/off it is for powering an electric water heater. If the water heater is propane and electric there would be a selector switch to choose between the two power sources.

You would need to buy a propane hot water heater. Unfortunately you can not convert an electric hot water hearter to propane.

I didn't want to use either an electric or gas hot water heater so I invested in a solar hot water heater for my home. Best thing that I ever did as far as saving money. Once it is paid off then the benefits are lower utility bills.

Good luck,

Marty

We have no hot water, and the DSI light is on. Doesn't work in either electric or gas mode.


I'll need you model number to verify it has electric element, as well as DSI ignition. Does it try to ignite,on propane, as in sparking at electrode? On DSI, the light on usually means it tried to light but failed due to a problem, such as propane not on, or present etc.
Do you have a 12 volt test light or Multimeter?

Red light on ignition switch not working


On gas, usually it may light momentarily when first igniting, but as long as it lights on propane, the light goes out. Only if there is a problem that cause it not to light, will it stay on.
