Tracer 2600 RLS Hot Water Tank

My husband just flushed out the water in our brand new Tracer 2600RLS Executive trailer for the first time. He hooked up the water to the City Water inlet. We have water at all of the faucets. Under the sink there are 2 oval knobs that are visible. One is on the tube that has the open ended hose on it. Behind it is another knob, which we have turned so it is in the same direction as the tubes/pipes. We did NOT put the plug in the hot water tank on the outside of the trailer and we are not getting any water out of that opening. Are we not seeing a valve somewhere that allows the water to go into the tank? We have read all information that came with the trailer and it shows all about pilot lights, etc. but nothing showing all fo the valves under the sink. Can someone please give us a clue? Thanks in advance.

There should be a second set of valves. One on a line going into the lower part of your tank (cold water), a second on a line coming out of upper part of your tank (hot water) and a third located on a line that connects the two (bypass). The cold and hot valves need to be opend (parallel to the line) and the bypass should be closed (perpendicular to the line). These valves are usually located towards the rear of the tank. Turn the valves just the opposite to winterize.

Hope this helps.

Thumbs up racer 2600 RLS Hot Water Tank

Thank you for the reply. Your answer was what we needed. Unfortunately, when we did our walk through, we were not told of the other valves behind another removable panel. Thanks again.

No problem. Glad to help.

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new PT trailer. So far we really like ours and should you ever need them, their customer service is great.

I should have mentioned the valves you originally mentioned are used when siphoning anti-freeze from it's container while winterizing.
