1st Question - Can you verify that you actually have a Gas/Electic Waterheater? Most units are gas only. You may have to look at the unit and look for power cables.

2nd. Is power connected prior to turning on the water heater?

Heater fires up to temp but why doesn't it restart as temp. drops below thermostat setting?


It could actually be the thermostat, the circuit board, the sail switch, but no way of knowing without actually seeing and diagnosing it.

How to turn on water heater


This might not be much help, without more details, but there should be a valve inside the water heater panel (outside) you can open. Open the valve at the main propane tank also.

Make sure the water tank is FULL before you fire it up. There should be a switch inside the coach somewhere to turn it on.

If it doesn't ignite immediately, you probably have air in the lines. Light the stove and let it burn for a minute, then try the hot water tank again. Might take a few tries to get it fired up.

Rockwood manuals


Contact the manufacturer of the coach for their owner's manual. However, each appliance will have a separate owner's manual form its perspective manufacturer, i.e., Water Heater = Suburban, A/C = Dometic, Refrigerator = Norcold, etc.. There will not be a diagram of electrical or plumbing as a majority of the RV manufacturers do not publish that information. To connect the battery you will connect the negative cable to the "-" terminal on the battery. This negative cable is typically white in color and will be directly connected to the frame of the coach. The other cable is typically red in color and will be connected to the "+" of the battery.

There will not be a diagram of electrical or plumbing as a majority of the RV manufacturers do not publish that information. The only thing that I can think of that would cause the TV to reset when the Air Conditioner comes on is if the AC is remote controlled you may have a frequency conflict. It is not typical for the AC to share an electrical circuit with the TV but if that is the case here then the TV may be getting shut down because the AC is drawing too many amps on startup for the TV to continue to function. Turn the breaker off to the AC and see if the TV shuts down also. If it does then you will need to get the issue corrected.

On my 2010 trailmaster 269bhs the hotwater doesnt work can i switch is to straight gas instead of electric


You can switch it out but pretty labor intensive. You cannot just add a gas option to the unit. You will have to replace it with a gas heater and then plumb it to the tanks. The existing unit probably has something simple like a safety sensor that went bad or a heating coil.

Water heater keeps kick off electrical breaker


Sounds like the element in the tank is shorting to ground thru the water in the tank. Disconnect power, the remove cables from element connection and protect them from contacting anything. Turn on breaker again. If it does not trip replace element or entire tank. If it continues to trip it's somewhere in the harness or a bad breaker.
