Hello from Tennessee

Hi All -
We lucked out and found a great deal on a 17 Sports Enthusiast BHSE. We had been looking for a pop up since Feb. and a nice dealer secured this one coming in on trade. Pickin's have been slim!!!

Took our maiden voyage after lots of practicing in the yard and all went great. As expected we had a few hiccups and I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction/forum to ask some questions:

1. When we first hooked up everything worked super great. Water heater hot, air cold, cassette toilet working... etc... On day two the hot water heater turned off. I'm not sure if one of the kids messed with something or what. My wife said she was adjusting the sunbeam thermostat on the internal stove thinking it was the hot water heater... doh. She did manage to turn the furnace on. I have the 12 volt switch off, the gas off for the water heater off, and the hook up power on. What am I missing here? I did turn the gas on to run the stove.

Thanks all... excited about leaving the world of tent camping behind and entering the world of air conditioned relief. =)
