Hello,

My brother has a 2019 Entegra Vision 26X, and the hot water is not working, intermittent at best. He purchased it from our sister, and he's a first time ever. Any tips or areas to focus on?

thanks,

So what is "not working" when trying to use the hot water?

Is water not coming out of the faucet? Is there water, but it's not hot?

How is it set to heat the water? (gas/electric)

Depending on how it's set to heat, is anything else that uses that source working?

Good luck! Mitch

Need more information. Some rigs have continuous water heaters. Most have either Suburban or Atwood tank type.
Looks like it has a 6-gal tank type.
entegra specs
Find out whether they are running it on 120 volts or propane.
Ask if any lights come on the switch, they are operating the water heater.

Water was coming out cold, but 30 minutes later, his wife called over to our camp site and said it was now hot. I don't know what made it start working....I know in my trailer, I flip the switch, run the water for about 5 minutes, and it becomes hot. Anyway, it's all working now! That's a pretty nice little motorhome.

thanks,
