what did you mean water is gushing out where the pump is ?
if you have watergushing out of something that would sound like you had things freeze and then something broke. Can you explain what is going on a bit better.

When we driving up here everything worked fine. As soon as we parked we noticed that the water stopped running. We could not hook up to city water because the water in the hose was freezing so we decided to just use the water in the holding tank. I was under the impression that the bay was heated by the furnace. Come to find out that the vent was disconnected that made the lines freeze. The temperature was in the teens when we got here. We re connected the the vent and space heaters in the bays. I noticed water gushing out where the pump was. At first I thought it was the water pump, but the water pump still runs solid. This morning I tried to fill up the water tank again but when I did, hot water started gushing out the to of the bay. Also the water was sputtering out of the faucets

Thanks for all your help

Put a hair dryer to the bypass valve and any 90 degree turns. It may be frozen there.

some additional advise... If you hook up to city water, you may want to leave your sinks set on a fast drip for tonight. That will keep the water moving just enough to keep the lines from freezing. We're in upstate NY, where the temp is supposed to go down to -5 tonight and get somewhere between 12 and 18" of snow. Can't wait to move south one of these days...

based on the way you winterize your coach when you use antifreeze if the bypass valve was open or frozen i do not believe that would stop you from getting water out of the faucets. You would just get cold water out. If you have the heat from the furnace going into the wet bay and it has been on there for a while hopefully that would have warned things up enough to get rid of frozen lines but not for sure.

I would close the hot water bypass valve ( basically change to the other position.) and see if you get cold water coming out of the faucet when you turn on the hot water valve.

I am assuming that you are getting cold water out of the faucets and the problem is just with hot water. If you are not getting any water out of the faucets at all that is a totally different issue.

Re heated tanks... Yes, with the furnaced on the tanks are heated however many RV's are still rated only for around 20 degrees, you can extend it down a bit with additional electrical heat (I hope mine is good to 10) but that's about the limite, when temps are in the teens with wind, odds are you gonna freeze if they stay there long enough.

As for no hot water.

The water heater, if not turned on, is not as well protected as the rest of the house.. if it IS turned on, then it's better protected.

As soon as the outside temperature went over 32F I restarted the pump and we go hot water again
Temps in the teens are not a good match for living in an RV I guess
