We're enjoying our first trip of the year! Electric water heater isn't working, luckily the gas part of it is.

Installed a vented Splendide washer/dryer combo in my Wildcat yesterday. The install of the unit wasn't too bad but getting the venting was a pain. Had to fabricate an adapter for the rear of dryer vent due to the lack clearance. Then I had to find a place to vent it out. The only place through the floor behind a dresser after cutting a big hole in the wall.
Why did I point out how cute the little washer/dryer was to DW at Camping World. Dumb!

Brought the RV to the house to de-winterize.
Cleaned the inside, flushed and sanitized (bleach) the water system and test fitted my new Bolt-it-on motorcycle hold down system. Also tested out the TST 507 TPMS system on the way, worked like a champ. Still need to lube the hubs and slide rails.

Have any of you troubleshot/repaired your water heater? Circuit breaker is fine, reset switch has been pushed. I suspect the anode, although I've been careful to make sure I never had it one without water in it....the only time it has been drained was this winter, and I just brought it home this past week.

Red Wolf, the anode has nothing to do with whether the unit will heat, the anode is to prevent corrosion of the tank itself. I suspect the electric heating element is shot.

Thanks OC and Youroo. It turns out this unit has TWO reset switches. Pushed them both and was rewarded with the sound of the element hissing in the water. Yes!

I had the thermostat on the hot water heater go bad. There are two, one each for 12v and 110v. Behind black cover under gas plumbing.

Raining here, so checked for roof leaks after re-caulking along rear cap to roof. low spot half way across and water puddles creating slight staining on fride shelf.

Just to be clear for any newbies: The 110v reset is for the 110VAC heating element, while the 12V reset is for the 12VDC that powers the circuitry that turns the propane heating on and off. You can operate either one without the other.
