We have a Suburban SW10DE water heater in our Montana 5th wheel. The water comes out the bleed valve hot and you can feel that the tank is hot, but no water coming out of the faucets is hot. I was hoping for some suggestions on what else to check.
Also, when you close the hot water valve cold water runs through the system. when the hot water valve is open no water comes through at all.
We have checked the bypass lever and it is in correct position. When op We don't have any seeping out of the PRT valve (this hasn't been the problem). The problem is no hot water flow from the unit into the rig and out the faucets. We did go ahead and follow the steps to drain the water and then refill to see if this helped.
We still can not get any hot water from the water heater into the rig and out of the faucets. But if you open the drain the water flowing out from inside the tank is hot.
