2017 rev

those combo furnace/water heaters are a nice upgrade on the 2017 models - they work better because they are not " on demand " and dont have the cold water issue taking a shower plus they do work on propane or electric.

my last post on water heaters - I promise ?

My last thought on any small camper water heater or furnace is to use propane even if you can use ac power / because we all know how much power is used to heat up anything and a 30 amp system will trip really fast when you forget what all is on . And also when using your generator and it stops working from being tripped ( it is crawling under your motor home and resetting that , which is really tough to figure out the first time )

Where do I find the LP turn on on the tank? So, to recap, water is in tanks, made sure to get any air out of lines by running water to the stream was steady in all faucets.

Turned on Water Heater switch, that lights up red. Turn on hot water, nothing, just cold water. I took some photos of our Atwood ON Demand water tank. Any other suggestions of what we can to to get the hot going, before we end up taking it in somewhere. I took one shower when we first bought our REV and we were hooked up to shore power and the water was perfect?

In your first picture, upper left corner. See the button with the red and lavender wires connected to it? Push it in and try again. Use the outside shower, it's easy to tell if it lights.

Also, I can see by the picture with your finger in it that you have not had the Atwood recall done.

Ok we will try what you suggested tomorrow. What is the Atwood Recall? Oh Crikey when does it end!! LOL, is the recall something that needs to be done by an Atwood service center? What is it for? Sorry for all the questions, this situation is frustrating for sure. I definitely appreciate all the assistance and suggestions from everyone. Very grateful.

Propane turn off is on the actual propane tank. On our Force it is the back storage bin on the drivers side.
