wildcat maxx 32tsx hot water and lci remote issues

I purchased a 2016 Wildcat Maxx 32TSX. I really love this rv. Great layout. But I only have two issues.

1. Hot water does not get very hot. only luke warm. is there an adjustment somewhere?

2. The LCI wireless remote that controls the pop-outs, stabilizing jacks, awning, etc used to work but not all I here is the clicking of the relay panel when I press a button and nothing works.

1) Hot water. Are you sure your hot water heater bi-pass valves are closed and the water is actually running through the HWH?

2) Remote control. You may need to find the "receiver" and check out the fuses on the main circuit board. Blown fuses on this board is not uncommon in my experiences.

check your outside shower. Be sure that both valves are OFF. If not water will mix. Don't ask how I know this. water temp is nonadjustable at 140 degrees.

.
As others have stated, your bypass valves are most likely incorrect. Sounds like the crossover valve is open (should be closed for normal use) that goes between the cold and hot water lines.

It may take some investigating to find the remote receiver. They hide it in some out of the way places.

I also had the same issues.

In my case the bypass valve was turned the wrong way for normal use.

I found my circuit board with fuses for the remote under the fridge, the was a panel with a few screws. Replaced fuse, I'm golden now.

I also have a Wildcat Maxx...

Steve, you can help me. I have 02 27rk. I have the bypass piping but only one valve at the bottom inlet. Just bought trailer this year. When I got it I opened the valve and got hot water. When I close the valve cold water flows out my facets. Is their possible a check valve at the top to prevent back flow of antifreeze when the bottom valve is closed? Don't want to pit in 6 extra gallons of antifreeze.

My buddy answered the question about the only one valve on the water heater and how to deal with it.

Water valve was open between hot and cold. That corrected number 1. Found 1 30 amp fuse blown when I get time to buy a new one I will let you know if fixed. Tried to post but could not find on the forum again. Till you posted. Sorry.

As said above, we appreciate it much when you come back and let us know what fixed the problem. I'm glad it wasn't anything worse than a blown fuse.
