You should open the pressure relief valve. That is located on the outside of unit behind metal door if there is water coming out, you can then flip the switch in the lower left corner and use the electric to heat the water. Don't flip switch on if there is no water or unsure of waterWish I had a pic to post, you can search water heaters on this forum and find tons of info and pics.

Just a thought if your valves are correct and water comes out warm not hot check to make sure your outside shower is off at the knobs and not the actual shower head. Having outside shower knobs open will cause hot and cold water to mix when calling for hot water at another faucet

Do you have an outside shower / faucet? If those valves are left open, that can cause hot and cold water to mix which results in tepid water at the inside faucets.

Cindimac: Did you get it going? I had a different thought if it's still not working. You said you hear the gas ignite, go for a few seconds, the go out? If so, check the sail switch and make sure it's not stuck or blocked. Once the burner lights, the exhaust fan starts to blow. If the sail switch doesn't sense air exhausting through the flue it will shut off the gas flow for safety.

Now I know we are newbies.. But what the heck.. I remember when we pick up the used 2012 that the water wasn't very warm brought it back to the RV place and he did something to get the water hot.. But I forgot what he did..must have had a senior moment.
Can any one have any suggestion, can't take a cold shower..
Thanks

Glad to see you got it solved. However, if you have full hookups, you should be using electric water heater if possible rather than gas. You are already paying for the electricity and can save the gas for other uses.
