To you have the bypass valves set in winterizing position? (There should be a set of 3 valves on the water heater on the inside of the coach: the two directly connected to hot and cold should both be open, and the one that goes in between hot and cold should be closed.)

If it's not the bypass, it may be when the hot water tank was installed they used to long of a hose and it became kinked. That happen to mine. CW "fixed" my hot water and swore that they ran the hot water for a few minutes. I had told them that I had hot water but within one minute it became cold. They just assumed that I didnt know how to work it. on the day we were leaving for a trip I had to take it back again and told them I wanted to watch them run the hot water, it turned cold. It took them 5 hours to figure out that when it was installed the hot water hose was kinked. They had to trim it down and now it works.
