Try just turning on the hot water side and let it run for at least 30 seconds, or longer (leave the cold water side turned off). Then reverse the procedure - they might be hooked up on reverse with cold actually the hot tap and hot the cold tap.

I had the same problem with my 303 RKS. Rather that take it back to the dealer (2 1/2 hours one way), I contacted Prime Time and they were willing to send me a new faucet assembly. I told them to wait until I checked it out further (it was early spring and TT was still in storage). When I de-winterized it, I also removed the interior panel at the rear of the docking station (which is under the bed on the 303 RKS) and found that the HOT water line was kinked between the back of the faucet and where the line goes down through the floor. The line was too long and when they tried to "curve" it to attach to the faucet assembly it kinked. The hose was long enough where I just cut it off below the kink and reattached it to the faucet assembly.

However, keep in mind that as part of Prime Times 25 year leak-free guarantee, they use Oetiker line clamps. Once cut off a new clamp must be installed with special clamp pliers (both available at Lowes or Home Depot), regular hose clamps WILL NOT work.

Hope this helps and good luck.

Well sir, you are a gentleman and a scholar. Kinked hot line.

However this wasn't the problem. I guess it is dealer time. Which sucks because I am a month and a half out of warranty.

I took a couple of pics of the hot pipes coming from the hot water tank. I looks like the outside hot was missed. The hot that is on the floor goes to the shower and the other goes to the kitchen faucet. Hope I can get this still covered under warranty. 6 weeks out of it.

SK - Although I can't exactly see what your last pic means, what I can tell you is this: If your outside shower doesn't have a hot water line run to it, we will take care of the issue regardless if it's out of warranty or not.

Please contact our service department at this link and let us get to work on this for you.

Prime Time Manufacturing, Manufacturers of travel trailers and fifth wheels

Sorry for the problem.

This post is why owning a Primetime product is so great.

Thanks RV Guy. Again it is great to have your participation. I will follow that link. Never had a need to use the outside shower till now.

Also, all of this posting had been done on my iPhone using the Forrest river app. Whomever designed it did a great job. Not only has this helped me out but is a great time waster.
