Filling Up RV Water Heater

by Ron

If I hook my RV up to city water, will it automatically fill the hot water heater? If so, how do I fill the water heater using my storage tank?

Thank You Ron

ANSWER: Greetings Ron thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.

As long as your water heater is not bypassed (winterized) it should automatically fill up when you hook up to city water. To help it along you might want to turn on the hot water taps on your bathroom and kitchen sinks when you first hook up to city water.

Once you start getting a steady flow of water coming out it will be safe to actually turn on the hot water heater. You do not want to turn on the hot water heater when it is not full as it will cause damage to the water heater.

When you are not hooked up to city water you will have to turn on your RV's Water Pump and follow the same procedure as outlined above to fill up the water heater.

I hope this helped.
