What is the make and model of your water heater? If you don't know you should be able to open up the outside inspection panel and get that off the data tag. Once I have that I can supply a manual and explain the procedure to you.

can you call me on my cell and help me with my question?
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 10 months ago

We do offer a phone call option. It would help if I knew the make and model first.
