We are on the road,(currently in Calistoga Calif.) first day out discovered we have no hot water in the shower. Have hot H20 in kitchen and bath sinks. Any ideas or suggestions where to start? We're tired of having to use the shower at the RV park! Thanks dj

We have found a way to "bypass" the problem (for now). Found if we use the pump we have hot water. Pressure in the park is not the greatest but have OK pressure to do dishes etc. Chuck thinks that something has gone wrong inside the shower control valve (?) so we'll deal with it when we get home, unless someone has a better idea!

Hey dj,

Unfortunately, we don't have any ideas for you. Sure wish we did, or that someone else would come up with a thought for you!

See you in SB!

Donna & Chuck, have you considered asking WRV the builder of your motorcoach for an answer to your problem?

Had the same thing happen to our 03 fdts. Found that the shower valve went bad. Go to the hardware store. They will have a new cartridge for the valve. All will be well.
