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 heating element may be breaking down.

Cold water runs through the faucet shower but no water at all through hot water side


If no hot water at any faucet, and your sure water in water heater is hot, check by-pass at back of tank for wrong positioning.

RV water heater problem: my water heater ignities, when I turn on the hot water faucet there is a steady flow of water but no hot water. The bypass valve is parallel with the cold water line. I can only...


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

Water heater working fine but very little hot water coming out


alot of time those small units do not have a fast recovery rate so if they are on for a min or more they might start to lose temperature. if it's on demand especially in cooler climates it might not have enough power to heat it up and keep up with your demand
