What is the question? It takes some time to heat up the water once you put the water in the tank.

that's not the issue. the pop off will release hot water the tank is full of hot water, I am guessing it is either the check valve that isn't opening up on the back of the water heater or the bypass valve isn't opening up to allow the cold water to get pushed into the tank. any other suggestions.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
when i said no water comes out of the hot spigot, I mean actually no water.
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 months ago

That might be the case. What it is the make and model of your water heater?
