We have a 2000 36FDS and since new have had a problem with sediment from the hot water heater plugging up the plumbing even though I cleaned the heater and replaced the anode yearly. Grady Little who has an Alpine the same as ours with the same problem. We have known and helped others with pluged hot water lines.

Grady found a strainer for the hot water outlet. I ordered two each and we both installed them. Turned on the water and heated to check it out. On test found cold water on the hot and hot water on the cold outlet. Would you bleve that WRV connected the tank backward so that hot water was coming out the bottom putting all the sediment from the bottom of the tank in the lines. We both reversed the lines on the tank. All ok now. I dont think I will need a strainer but will not spend the time to take it out. Moral of the story PLUGGED HOT WATER LINES CHECK THE WATER TANK CONNECTIONS.

I found that on ours years ago. I thought I did a post on it. I'll do a search and see.

I checked my posts and the plumbing problem happened before I started this forum. Sorry.
