Hot Water Heater Expedition

I'm brand new at rv'ing and just filled up my LP tank. But now I don't have hot water, so how do I get it going in my 2002 Fleetwood Expedition?

Secondly, when I hookup (30amp) at an RV park my front AC buzzes (even when it's off). I turned the breaker off and that stops the buzzing, but every AC outlet I have is on the same breaker. Help!

I'm no electrician, so I'll leave that part alone. Is the MH brand new, or new to you? I would suggest spending an evening reading thru all the manuals that came with it. For the WH, make sure the valve on your LP tank is open. Secondly, turn on your water pump and open the bathroom and even the kitchen hot water. You're trying to purge air in the WH tank and lines. Heating an empty tank is bad bad bad. Once these two steps are done, the switch to turn on the WH is a small (probably black) rocker. Mine is on the control panel above the bathroom sink. It will probably have an orange light it indicating it's on. BTW, if there's air in your gas lines, which there most likely is, turn on a stove burner with a lighter held next to it. Once it ignites, the gas line is 'mostly' purged. Hope this helps.

I have an 02 Expedition 36T.

There is a switch in the curb side rear bay beside the LP fill. Make sure that is turned on. That turns the LP tank on. If you have that on, try lighting the stove to make sure you have flow. Also, ensure that the water heater bypass is turned to fill the tank. It should be in the night stand cabinet on the curb side of the bed. One final check (check first) is to ensure that the water heater switch is on (in the overhead cabinet to the right of the TV and on the side of the cabinet of the kitchen sink).

As for the AC.... You have an Intelitec Energy Management System. If you have both zones set low enough for the AC to come on then both fans should be running at a minimum. The Intelitec will "shed" the rear unit of you are using more than 30amps. When it goes into shed mode, the rear AC compressor will kick off and the green light below the zone 2 thermostat will turn red indicating it has shedded the rear AC load. The front AC should be unaffected. Unless of course, there are issues with it. Check the light and see if it is red. If it is, it could be several things.... Could be a bad capacitor in the AC preventing startup (fan should still run), or could be a problem with the Intelitec system.

The Intelitec brain is located in the cabinet below the bedroom TV. There is limited troubleshooting that can be done, but I am not familiar enough to give advice there. You should be able to check for audible clicks and such to see if it is attempting to do its job.

Hope this helps.

Up and Going

Thanks for the help, guys. Hot water is up and going. I'll have to let a tech look at that AC unit.
