A little help with my diagnostics would be great. My T & P Relief valve started leaking big time, which I think shorted out my heating element and switch. I have a 10 gal suburban w/h. I replaced the T&P Valve, Anode, on/off switch, and heating element. I still have no electric heating capability, and I do have power to the element, so any ideas??

If as you say you have power to the heating element, do you have water in the tank? Is the water bypass on or off?

Yes, I have water and the bypass is off. I am wondering if it could be in the control module?

Does your unit work on gas and get up to temp?

Yes, it works on gas and gets up to temp., so I have hot water, but the electric side will not sustain the temp. Pretty confusing and frustating.

I would check your element with a Ohm meter to check to see if it is good. Maybe you got a bad one. If you have power to it, and it works on gas and gets up to temp, I would say it might be a problem with the element you installed.

Update. I traced all the wires and found I had no power to the 120v hi-limit ECO switch, so I changed it out and so far so good. Thanks for the input and maybe this experience will help another RVer.
