No hot water

I left this morning with all water working and when I returned this afternoon I have no hot water to any taps. The cold water works to all taps. In a 2007 intrigue. Hydro hot 200. Could it be a frozen line to the hydro hot? It has been in the -35 Celsius range for 3 days now.

Let me get this straight: You are telling us you're camped in -31 Fahrenheit?

I have been more than once in 15 below in my Magna. I live on the Canadian border in Montana until around Thanksgiving. It's quite challenging. Ice on all the window frames and the windshield inside for example. Door freezing. No way my Magna could make it in -30. If his only problem is no hot water, he's doing very very well! I am amazed.

Yes the heat is working and keeping the coach warm. Just lost hot water, all of a sudden. Suppose to warm to above 0 this weekend will diagnose and let you all know what I find and how to rectify.

I have no idea why you have no hot water, but assuming it's not your hydro hot, I can mention one thing I've had happen during extended temps below zero: I would lose all water pressure and it took me a year or two to figure out what the problem was since my water bay was at 60 f. I don't know how your Intrigue is set up but in my Magna there are a couple of places near water solenoids where the water pipes are strapped to the floor for some inches (or centimeters in your case). In extended Sub-Zero temps the floor itself will eventually cool below freezing and a water pipe in contact with it can freeze.

there should be a tempering valve on the output to control the temp. If that valve failed you could get just cold water out of the hot side. I assume your getting water its just not hot?

In only below 10F, with our 04 Allure. We had no water running to our kitchen, but still had HydroHot Heating the coach. This was a two slide coach, with the kitchen the Non Slide Side... And, water lines/pipes in the sidewall running to the kitchen sink area.

We found that by keeping the kitchen cabinet lower doors open, that the heat of the coach (While still quite a bit chilly!), was enough to keep the 'water lines/pipes' from freezing.

These are well built, and designed coaches... But at those temps, well - things can get a bit frosty!

Very good chance, that some pipe in your 07 Intrigue - is close enough have 'frozen' water...

Please let us know if you find another problem as root cause - as it could help other's in the future!

Best of luck,
Smitty

There is a brass check valve in cold water supply to HH. It is located in the horizontal section above HH before PEX turns vertical down into HH bay. That area can get cold.
