Welcome to the group!
May I suggest you get a signature that includes your trailer make and
model and year.
OR include that in your tech questions.
Also we'd like to call you something! Maybe you need a name or handle?
AND finally..... if you have your water heater bypass valves all in the
normal use positions and you connect your trailer to a city water
hose OR fill your water tank and turn on the water pump AND open a
hot water faucet to let out the trapped air THEN your water heater
You can test that it's full by pulling the little handle on the "pop off" valve
located near the top of the water heater tank.
Be careful if it's hot not to get burned but it should be cold until you
have confirmed that it's full.
While you're looking at the burner area of the water heater look
for a tiny little black rocker switch. It may have a safety wire in it.
Pull the wire and flip the switch ONLY after you are sure there is water
in it. This turns on the electric element if you have one.
You can use electric or gas or both at the same time if you're in a hurry
to get hot water.
IF you have electric water heater you also have a circuit breaker in your electrical
panel that should be labeled WH or something to clue you it's the water heater.
Good luck and happy camping!
