I Am Nervous About Turning On The Hot Water Heater In My RV

by Jo

I recently bought a 1989 coachman Catalina. I am just a new rv'er...and not sure how to turn the hot water on. Where we are camping, we are hooked to city water..I do have propane. and I do know that there is a switch by the sink that you turn on ...But I am nervous about it. Can you help me and walk me through step by step on what I need to do.

Thank you

Well Jo there is nothing to be nervous about. What I would suggest that you do before you turn on the water heater is to do some routine maintenance on it to make sure it is ready to be turned on.
