Hot Water trickles

We are new to the camping lifestyle. Can someone explain to me what these buttons and switches do?

Also our hot water is trickling slow from the faucets. Is the valve at the water heater stuck or bad?

Thanks for the helpClick image for larger version

The switch on the left is the 110 volt power switch. Sometimes there is a second switch on the control panel. The buttons are reset buttons when there is a problem with the heater.

This should help explain how your Suburban water heater works:

Suburban's electric switch and much more

As per the hot water trickling, please watch videos #3 and #4 here to make sure you have the winterization/bypass valves set correct as well as flushing the tank to make sure you don't have crud clogging something up.

Hope this helps

Thanks for the input friends. We figured out that the shutoff on the hot water line was stuck closed. Replaced now back in business.
