No hot water

Well at first I forgot to turn the propane on but after turning it on and returning the switch on waiting for the light to go out but still no hot water even after 15 minutes. Anyone know what it could be? I haven't check bypass but the tank is full of water

Does your stove top light?
Does your unit have more than one tank?

Be sure you have prop by lighting the stove as a check.If so,reboot the switch and listen for the Click.

If you had the switch on before without propane on, it is possible you had to wait for the line to reprime and the pilot to light so it may take longer than usual.

We do have propane (furnace was on) yes I had to reset the switch and I hear the click but it was late to check the pilot I'll be doing that today. Hope we just weren't waiting long enough.

15 minutes is truly not near long enough.

Also if in fact is running on propane you should hear the burner outside at the access door.

I had a problem like this, but with fridge. Our old 5th wheel had fridge the switched over to propane when in tow. We tried know those "dirt dawber" screens, they don't always work. Big ole honkin' mud nest up in the system. Removed it and back to normal.

Do you have water in the HW heater? Open the pressure relief valve to make sure you don't have an air pocket.
