I am new... Need Info on 110 water heater

Hello, I own a Thor Windsport 27k and my 110 hot water heater function just quit while we are out on this trip. I am asking if someone can tell me where the breaker might be located. It seems like the logical place to start but I can't find it! Thanks Dick

Not familiar with your particular RV BUT it's AC CB would be in the MAIN AC Power Panel where the Main Breakers for rig are

Which Brand/Model of water heater.
Atwood uses DC Power to activate the AC element
Suburban uses direct AC Power

So better info concerning the water heater with which Brand/Model
Rarely is it just the CB.
Could be bad element, tripped t-stat, bad t-stat, control module circuit etc.

Here is a past thread regarding the fuse boxes on a Wind Sport.


Let us know if this gets you there or not. Hopefully it does!

Best regards,

Canadalaker, there have been a number of water heater issues associated with the 120v connection to the water heater (poor connections with the wire nuts.). Look at the Ace 29.2 thread starting at post 1062 for more detail. Possible that it might be your problem.

There have been many issues with the 110V wiring to the heater element (so many that half of me is starting to think this could possibly be deliberate...)

It is very easy to pull the water heater out of the MH, just have a short table handy to support it once removed. Fix the connections then re-caulk
