Water issue

Hello all. New to the forum and think I have a classic for you. First time out I turn on the cold water faucet in the bathroom, all good. Turn on hot with cold and water runs in the bathtub. Right! So last time out I wanted to light the hot water heater. Opened the valves to fill the heater and the bathtub faucet runs. I don't know if some lines are crossed or bad valves. Please help!

A closed tap is just that ; closed . You need to pull the faucet insert , probably just a 25c washer. When you get the size , buy a half dozen, should be standard for all your faucets, mine are. Murphy's Law , if you have a spare , you'll probably never need it.

Thanks Skip. Started to take it apart yesterday. So just to be clear I'm removing the entire hot water valve assembly, correct?

Remove the bathtub hot water faucet handle. Under it you will find a nut holding the insert (cartridge) in the faucet body. Take it to a hardware store or Home Depot and find replacement cartridge.

Once you have the cartridge in hand , you'll see a flat head screw holding the seal washer to the bottom , replacing the entire cartridge is only required if you have a leak up the shaft under the tap handle, or other problems that replacing the seal won't fix.
As Bob says , hardware stores have the parts , they are not RV exclusive items.
