We have a 2017 Quantum. W had a complete water system failure last week. Water now works in bathroom IF the cold water is on; the second you shut the cold water off, the hot side stops flowing. We also tried to fill fresh tank (sensor says only 1/3 full) and the water started pouring back out of the tank. We called Thor, and they suggested a pinched hose. Anyone else have to deal with this? (Everything worked fine before that).

Can you see your water tank to see if it is actually a third or full? Sensors are typically bad and if you have the all in one control panel and monitor like in my 2017 Flagstaff they have more gauge issues then most. I believe there is a recall for these panels.

I am not sure how you are determining hot water flow if the cold is on. please clarify what you are doing. in general check the water heater bypass valves, should be 2 or 3. and be sure the outside shower is off.

I doubt anyone else on this forum had to deal with this since there are few if any Quantum owners on this Forest River Forum (Forest River Products not Thor products).

You might do a google search for Thor or Quantum forums for better help.
