Those are two completely different things.
Water heater is your water heater. That should be on.
Tank heater is the heating pads for the black and gray tank. Does not need to be on.

You also need to make sure you have enough flow to trigger the on-demand water heater. Turn the hot on full blast and adjust from there.

We also offer the manuals online and there is an app you can use as well. As you go through the generic manual, there will be product specific videos and manuals. There is a LOT of information...but its there.

it works by propane - make sure you have propane and it is turned on" on your in side wall and outside where you fill the tank - nothing more to do but open a hot water valve ! and also in your outdoor shower compartment make sure that valve is pointing to correct mode ?

Stand in front of the switch panel by the back door and have someone turn the hot water on. A little red light will light next to the hot water switch when it lights. If not, the overheat breaker inside the water heater door is probably the cause.

Take a screwdriver and open the hot water heater door. Look in the upper left for a small button. Push it in. It is the over temperature circuit breaker.

If you only turn the hot water on part way, the water heater will overheat and pop that breaker.

Look at the red plastic parts left of middle and see if there is a printed label about the size of an address label. If not, you haven't done the Atwood water heater recall. If you do have the label, look underneath for an aluminum plate about the size of a postage stamp with one hole and a screw in that hole. It will be a screw that requires a special screwdriver.

If the plate is there, the recall was done. The red knob to the right of that has to be all the way to the top "full on" for the water heater to work after the recall.

When you put the cover back on, you need to stick the screwdriver through the round hole towards the top to line up the little black plastic pipe with the hole.

Also, the door doesn't have hinges. It lifts up off of pins.

Maybe he forgot to turn the water management switch or valve back to the Normal position. He may have left it in the Fill Tank position.

Mine is in the outside shower compartment and if I recall correctly it should be pointed straight up for normal use..

I checked that first when I couldn't get water, that was in the Normal. The water issue solved now that tank is full, lol. Just trying to figure out how to get the hot water now from the tankless heater.

Ok, so here is my Panel by my RV door. So, first I need to make sure I am doing the right thing. If I have a tankless water heater, is the only way to use it with Propane? Or can I use it via generator or plug in? I am always confused on what can be use with what.

Next, so lets say I want hot water. I make sure the red button is on and then turn on hot water from the faucet? Do I need to do anything with the button that says Tank and Heater? What is the difference between the Tank/Heater and the Red Water/Heater button.

Help!!! Getting there...

very simple system - turn red water heater switch on ( as you come into back door ) and open any hot water valve ! ( if not hot real quick - first check the small on /off gas switch behind outside door where lp gas is filled and that is on ,- then take screwdriver or penny to back of water heater ( black metal cover left of outside shower ) and push little red breaker in the top left of that compartment
