THOR #14474
New to Forum

Glenn from Canton, Georgia. We are new to the Forum. We have a fairly new purchase of an 2017 Compass. Like the camper a lot but it is a lot smaller than we have been used to and is our first class C. We are excited to see there is a forum for Thor. We currently are not able to get hot water with our Girad instant hot. It worked initially but after winterizing and opening up it tries to come on but does not. Not sure where I need to check. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Welcome to the group. Hope you get your hot water working soon. Perhaps someone on the forum can help with that. I am not familiar with that type of hot water heating, but would bet someone here can step up.
Happy trails.

Hello and welcome to the forum. I dont know if I can help you but there a a few checks to make. Propane on? switch in water heater compartment on? Good flow of water? thermostat turned up to 115-125? The biggest problem I have heard with the tanklesss heaters is that there isn't sufficient water flow. Have you tried using your water pump rather than city water. Sometimes this help get the flow the heater wants. I have only had an issue once and that was insufficient water flow. I turned of the city water and used our pump and it worked fine. Lastly possible a spider built a web in the vent pipe.

Hope this helps. Be sure to let us know the results. Good Luck

Welcome to a new Compass/Gemini

mountainsam lists good and ongoing checks for a working hot water heater. I recall I had to have a part replaced under warranty...just not sure which part, sorry. From my notes, others on this forum wrote>:

...valve for the tankless water heater sticks --- just tapped it and it worked fine.

....had water heater problems. You always have to press the red button on the controller to get the green light to come on. when you power up either on DC, generator or shore power. It takes a few seconds to come on. Also, the heater won’t operate if DC voltage is under 10 volts. For example if you’re using battery power and only have two red lights showing on the battery display under the Jensen unit you probably won’t have hot water. Also, you can check voltage on the heater itself. You open the cover on the outside of the rv and open the white plastic cover you will see a green light on the circuit board showing the unit is on, if you see a red light then the voltage is below 10 volts so the unit won’t work. On the control panel in the bedroom, with the green light on, you should see a fan icon, a flame icon and a shower head icon if hot water is working from any source.

Hope you find an easy solution (and happy travels),
Nancy

I agree, you will get some answers here in the introduce yourself thread, but the tech threads will produce more.

Anyways,
Welcome in, PaPa Glenn, and we hope you find resolve.
