first night questions from newbie
Ok, last night was our first night in our 27' cherokee, and I have many questions, can anyone please help?
Our water supply is coming from a hose and we are not running off the onboard tank.
1 we had no hot water even though the switch was in the on position; nothing. I read the instructions and cut off the propane, killed the electric, waited and then restarted the propane and electric. One thing, while looking in the compartment where the hot water "guts" are, the burner etc, I found that the hot water heater element had been removed and laid aside, it was covered in scale and practically useless.
From what I understand when we get our water from a outside supply and not from the onboard tank, the water should go directly to the water heater and be heated up and delivered to our faucets. What does it mean that I found the water heater element outside the water heater and obviously not doing anything? Is this element necessary to heat my water, regardless of what source my water is coming from? ie; external hose vs onboard water tank?
