Not sure what happened when posting but apparently I am having trouble there also. My question is "I do not get hot water out of faucets, actually no water when faucet is on hot only get water when faucet is on cold. Hot water tank is full of water and does not supply water to faucet. Tried flushing tank and using elec and gas. It worked great then just stop supplying water" I have a 2004 Monaco Diplomat.

You have a failed check valve at the water heater. Has to do with winterizing. Iíve replaced mine twice. They fail internally and plug up the works. I finally replaced it with a conventional on/off valve.

Good morning LML,
Should be able to find it at Home Depot. Itís installed where hot water comes out of your water heater. To winterize youíd manually close the in-flow valve and drain the hot water heater. The check valve is supposed to stop the anti-freeze from back flowing into the water heater. If your installation has the space to do so, replace the check valve with a manual valve just like the other manual valve. Itís a tight space to work in and youíll need your big wrenches.
In my limited experience the check valves have very poor quality and fail way too often. YMMV.

Regards,
Tom Charlton

Thanks Tom. Just joined this site and glad I did. Always something to fix and I'm not the handiest person to say the least.
