I stand corrected! :|

Of all the water heaters I've seen, all the Atwood's have had the 3-way/check valve setup and all the Suburban's have had the three individual valves. Luck of the draw, I guess.

Well I got it figured out. It was a bad elbow that was on the hot line. On mine, the hot comes out the back, has about a 15 inch run then makes a turn under my cabinet before the check valves. I cut the line out and replaced the elbow and now have hot water running. Thanks everyone for the suggestions!

Had same problem, with the three valves AND a check valve on the hot side. The valve had come apart and the moving stem inside the valve body had come loose from it's keeper and the stem blocks water flow in the forward direction. Pull the "out" connection and see if that's the problem.

Glad you got it all solved and thanks for reporting back with the solution. That will helps others in the future.

I don't suppose you took pics of the bad part, did you?

Kinda wondering myself, how an elbow is bad, unless during the molding process the internal mold slides didn't seal off against each other creating the opening.
