Hot water MIA

For some reason when I moved my coach today I lost my hot water. I have cold and good pressure the hot water heater is working but nothing comes out when I turn on the hot water. Turned bypass on and got cold water out of thr hot side. That's because I bypassed the heater. Totally stumped ether water in not coming or not going out. All I did was move from one site to another. Had it before I moved. Any suggestions.

Yeap, it's a stuck check valve in the hot water outlet of the tank.

For many years Winnebago has used two check valves - input and output.

Check that you didn't leave the Winterize valve in the "winterize" instead of the "normal" position. When it is set to "winterize", it bypasses the hot water heater. Hopefully you haven't turned the power for the heater on. Your element will burn out quickly with no water in the heater. Good luck,
