Ever since we got the coach we've had a problem with little white flecks (calcium?) clogging the faucet in the bathroom sink. It's not a huge problem... every few weeks (sometimes more often) we have to unscrew the screen and clean out the nozzle. I am not sure if it's calcium, or flecks from the anode. I flush the water heater about every three months and a lot of the white flecks come out when I do. It only seems to happen in the bathroom sink faucet, but maybe that's because it has a finer filter. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a solution?

We have the same problem. So we just keep cleaning that little screen on faucet.

Don't mind the little things just the BIG ones.

I had the same problem and found my water heater plumbed wrong. Make sure the cold water inlet is plumbed to the bottom and hot water outlet to the top.

Danny,

Good idea, I never thought of that. I'll check that out next time I get close to our coach.

THANKS.

We also had this problem. The water heater anode rod, which is used to "absorb" the electrolytical action, was the problem. The anode rod was doing is job and was flaking off.

We changed the rod and flushed the tank of all the white flake material. Have not had anymore problems.
