When I had a 5er, the second trip to the dunes, the PRV leaked. Place I got it wanted me to haul 33' to them to fix. I convinced them to just give me a new one and I would change it. Never leaked again whether on AC or gas.

The manual I have says to re-seat all the connections and try again. Get some canned air and blow everything off. By it self, water is a poor conductor. Add salt or other stuff and it is.

If there was "Debris" in the tank it is possible a piece got jammed in the inlet check valve and is holding it open.. However since the system is normally pressurized, this is not a condition I would worry about.. In fact I wonder why they even put inlet check valves on them.. I do not believe I have one on mine. One less thing to go wrong.

Now outlet check valves.. Those I understand if you do not have a 3-valve bypass system.

Gee, I sure hope you had the electric switch for the HW heater turned OFF! If not you probably burnt out the electric heating element. Electric elements don't survive in air.
Suggest you see if you can make hot water with your propane. Then you'll have an idea if the HW heater works at all.

Thanks for input. Hot water heater works on propane and I think switch was off but that was yesterday.....I used compressed air to all fittings with no luck.
