Electrical Switch

when plugged in at campsite with 50amp, have electrical switch on, propane switch off, water pump switch off and no hot water. I then put propane switch on and hot water. It never did this before. I checked fuses-all look good any ideas?

Tripped 120vac circuit breaker to the water heater? Check for 120vac at the water heater?

I too just had this happen-my problem was corrosion on the control wires. The spade connections to the cct board, visible just inside the Atwood HW tank hatch- I cleaned the suspect one up and it started working right away- maybe you'll be lucky like me

Do you have a wiring diagram for your rig??

In my case the switch for the electric water heater is 12 volt, it actually controls a relay that engages a 120 volt relay. The relay is in a box mounted behind the main circuit panel. Not easy to find but it is shown on the wiring diagram with a notation of location.

you need to tell which model you have.
Include whether or not it is a 3 swtich unit or a single switch for propane and a electrical switch for AC.

Or better yet get your model number do a web search and you can get the troubleshooting instructions
it all depends
