  • Water only comes out when pushed to cold?

    I am sure it's frozen somewhere, but when you push the faucet to cold the water works, and when you push it to hot water stops coming out completely. This is without the water heater even being on, I always try the water in the morning before I turn on the water heater, and this morning it only works on one side! Has this happened to anyone else? I have a 2000 WNT, thanks!

    Are you saying you turn off the water heater at night?I thought it worked off both electric and propane.If you turn it off all together and the heaters tank freezes it will break or pop off the water line connections.At least leave the electric eliment on.

      That sounds strange. I don't really know your setup, but I would put an extra heater in there. I rescheduled all of this weeks appts cauz of the extreme cold. In 20 min my trailer went from 73 to 33.

        Terri, did you turn on the hot water heater and let it get toasty before trying or was that before you ran the hot water heater? I wonder if it's possible that the whole thing is frozen?

        I think this time of the year just sucks so bad, I hate freezing temps!

          Yes, this is without the water heater on. Doug I have ALWAYS turned the water heater off at night, am I not supposed to? I can't figure out how to switch it to electric if it's possible, I swear someone told me that you couldn't switch it to electric in the older WNT's.

          So what do I do now? How do I figure out what's busted?

            Terri, have you called WagnTails? Jamie should be able to help you.
            I don't leave my water heater on, I keep ceramic heaters on in the salon area and the back, keep the laundry shute open and I've been fine. This is my third winter in my 2004 WagnTails. Set the propane heater to kick on if the power goes out.

              crank up the heat

              put a space heater and the hv blasting air in the back eventually it will thaw out everything.Then you can inspect it for leaks by running the water both hot and cold.Park it with the back doors facing the sun might pick up a little solar heat as well.

                Terri, forgive me for asking the obvious, but are you pushing the control so far over that you are actually shutting the water off???

                  Lisa, I have done that a few times myself. Once I didnt' realize it, but a dog bumped the water to the off position and when I started to use my hose nothing was happening and I was panicking. I had no clue how I was going to rinse this dog clean.

                  After a few minutes of panic, I realized what had happened. Uhhhh what a nightmare panic brings.

                    LOL! No I am not shutting the water off. I did call Jamie and he told me to sick the dryer hosew through the laundry chute and aim it into the cubby hole towards the pipes and it worked. No more frozen pipes!

                      yup - that's why I remembered it. I did it quite a few times myself!
