Water lines reversed

We are on our maiden voyage in our new 29M. So far nothing magor. Last night we discovered we had no hot water. Checked hot water heater and found one of the connections was not attached. Easy fix. Now we are finding that the hot and cold water lines are reversed . Not a insurmountable problem except we are flushing with hot water. Where are the lines that I could switch? Thanks, Kevin

If all facuets are switched, find the hot water heater and switch hot with cold there. If only one place switch at the facuet.

Hot water heater is under the kitchen sink, look closely with a flashlight and you'll see the water lines. Do you have cold coming out of the hot side of your sinks?

SuperD,.you always seem to come to the rescue. The hot and cold is reversed everywhere,including hot water in the toilet.

The input and output lines on the water heater are reversed, the fitting are made to be turned by hand so you don't need any wrenches to switch it over. The blue lines obviously are for cold and red for hot. Either someone at Thor is color blind or they thought it would be funny to switch them! NOT!!!

This is a new one on me, have never heard of this problem before. Fortunately you can get to the fittings with a little stretch. I had mine apart when I installed a filter under the sink.

Slightly off topic, but it happens in stick homes, too. When be bought our house, they somehow had two hot water lines running to the master bath shower. No cold.
