No hot water

Hi I have a rockwood 2604ss and can't seem to get hot water. Can anyone give me some hints. Definitely would appreciate it. All tanks were filled by the rv service rep. I get nice water flow no hot water though.

Check and make sure the water lines to the water heater aren't set to bypass.

Are you trying to get hot water via the 110 AC power, or 12v, and gas? IF 110v AC power is your goal; then there is a switch outside under the cover for the W.H., you'll have to look carefully because it is kind of hidden. Remove the pin locking it in the off position, and switch it on. Also, be sure that the water heater circuit breaker in the converter box panel is on. Verify that you actually have a pressurized water flow at the sink faucet on the hot side before turning this on, or you will burn up the element. For gas operation, there will be a red rocker switch inside on the wall, usually near the thermostat somewhere. Turn that on, and open the gas bottle for gas operation. Randy

My bet would be the bypass valves. The heater will be hot but no flow.
