2019 Coachmen Mirada Select 37TB

Having trouble with the electric water heater. I turned the switch on over the tv and water still doesn't get hot. Is there any other switch to turn on maybe at the heater itself?

Check your valves on the water heater make sure they are in the proper positions. Thatís the problem I had when no hot water came out. There is a by pass so when you winterize you donít fill the water heater with antifreeze. Hope that solves the issue.

I'm assuming you mean a 'electric' Water Heater switch?
Do you have two switches - one for Elec and one for Gas?
Does the water heater already work on Gas/propane?

if using the 'Electric' switch,
You must also be plugged into Shore Power, or have the Generator running for it to work

and, depending on your brand/type of water heater, it may have an outside 'elec' switch on the heater panel itself, that must also be ON

Do you have two baths? Be sure to check both water heaters. Be sure you have water in water heater tank before you turn on water heaters.is it a Suburban Heater brand? If so what Model is it? On bottom or side of water heater panels outside

My rear water heater is not working but going back to dealer and they are checking before I winterize. I believe they burnt up water heater element or circuit board when dewinterizing it by turning it on before turning bypass valve to fill back water heater! Hope front one lasts until 31st! Mobile tech in keys wanted $545 labor justto check because they ate60 miles away! It is under warranty by Suburban for 6 more months.

Being that youíre saying your rig is a 2019, is this the first time using your motorhome? Sounds like itís still winterized. You need the valves set differently than in winter mode so that you donít waste antifreeze filling the water heater. Do you know the make and model(s) of your water heaters?
