First, let water heater heat up until it shuts itself off. Now carefully, ( it should be hot) open pressure relief valve slightly and catch some hot water in a cup or container. Compare it to what comes out your tap, that you say is warm only. If that water from pressure relief feels hotter, then check your by-pass valves for proper operation and position on rear of water heater, as it may be in a position that is allowing cold to mix with hot, creating warm. Cold line will go direct in the bottom fitting and hot will come out top fitting, and make sure any valves in between those 2 lines are in off position. If all is well there, or water from pressure relief is only warm as tap as well, then buy a new thermostat and ECO for that particular model water heater from RV dealer/service center, and replace them. They are behind rubber cover on upper left side on water heater. When cover is off, they are held against tank by 3/8 nut. When you replace it, snug nut up good but be careful not to go too much and snap that small brass stud that nut goes on. Pay attention to position of old one, so new one goes same way.

My hot water heater on my 5th wheel heats up in electric and gas but doesn't stay hot. It is hot a first then gets warm and then cold. Hope you can help.


The thermostat which is integral to the gas valve is defective. Simply replace the gas valve and your problem will go away.

Will this solve my problem of the pilot going out after the water is hot?


Your thermo coupler may be going out. If the thermo couple does not sense heat it will shut the gas off. This is a safety feature. Once you replace that you should be ok.

YEP. I'M IN THE RV BIZ AND IT'S MORE COMMON THAN U THINK. SOME DEALERS DON'T DO A THOROUGH JOB OF DELIVERY INSPECTIONS. ANYWAY, TAKE A HAIR DRYER AND THAW OUT UR FROZEN WATER LINE. SWITCH AROUND THE OFFENDING WATER LINES, THERE SHOULD BE ENOUGH PIPE TO ACCOMPLISH THIS. ASSUMING THE LOW FLOW IS WHEN UR USING UR PUMP, YOU CAN TURN THE PHILLIPS SCREW ON THE HEAD OF THE PUMP CLOCKWISE TO GIVE IT A LONGER STROKE. CHECK THE SCREEN FILTER FOR ANY DEBRIS, KINKS IN THE LINE BETWEEN THE PUMP AND WATER TANK, MAKE SURE THE AERATOR SCREENS AT THE SINKS AREN'T PLUGGED.
