Water heater trouble

Having water pressure problems. On the inlet side there is a tee with a cut off valve and the the valve blew out so i replaced it with a standard tee . The tee ties in with the out going side why i dont know. If i take the tee off and run it straight in i have no water pressure. Its a keystone lorado 2003 attwood 6 gal electric and gas. We are on vacation with no hot water.

It sounds like the winterizing bypass. As the water enters the tank (lower connection) a diverter valve can be set to stop water entering the tank and instead connects to the hot line coming out the upper part of the tank. If you've removed this valve, your water won't flow through the tank. Also, many water heaters have check valves (one way) to prevent water from flowing through tank when winterizing. They are famous for failing due to sediments/deposits that build up and block operation. Remove the check valves, soak in vinegar, and see if they operate properly.
