Water heater

I have a 2007 wildcat and after traveling 6 hours my water heater is not working. Which also mean I have no water to kitchen sink. But have cold water in bathroom. The water heater was working great before the trip. I have no idea what happend, thought it might of frozen on the drive but seems not to be as of what i can tell. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Whether the water heater 'works' (heats water) has no bearing on having water at the kitchen sink. Without more information about how you are trying to use the water heater, (IE. propane or electric) or if other propane appliances work correctly or if you've checked the electrical breaker and switch, it will be hard to do anything but guess at what is going on.

Using it off electric. Propane furnace works fine and breakers are good (nothing tripped) really thinking I just have a frozen line right below where it comes up to sink and water heater. Going to try and get it thawed.

Water to bathroom but no water to sink means frozen to me. Open up your cabinet doors and let the warm air get in and thaw out the lines.

Why not run your hot water heater on propane running down the road. If it's cold outside, cold enough to freeze then I drain all the water. The wind chill only effects live things. If I want hot water when I get to the campground quickly then I run the hot water heater on both the electric and propane at the same time.
