If an electric water heater is not producing hot water, it could be a simple problem like a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. Additionally, some electric water heaters have a circuit-style safety switch located near or on the thermostat.
There are several reasons for not having enough hot water or for running out of hot water too quickly. The reasons could be a malfunctioning thermostat, a broken or damaged dip tube, which would allow cold water to mix with the hot water at the top of the water heater, or having the water temperature set too low.
If you have weak or no hot water flow at hot water faucets,
Check first for closed water supply valves, then, if you have good cold water flow but no hot water flow into or out of the water heater, check for a blockage in the water supply piping.
Water leaks are perhaps the most common type of water heater issue you`ll face. Any water heater will start to leak eventually, as by nature water will eventually corrode your tank and create microscopic cracks or fractures. However, this isn`t always a sign that your tank is what`s leaking.
A likely explanation is that your faucet might be clogged. Over time, mineral deposits build up inside the plumbing fixtures after repeated use. This blockage doesn`t allow the hot water to flow correctly. The problem becomes more prominent when combined with other plumbing issues, such as low water pressure.
A powerful gas burner heats the water in about half an hour. If you want hot water faster than this, you need a boiler with an additional electric heating element. This reduces the heating time to about 15 minutes.
Thermostat or Heating Element Are Acting Up
As the hot water reaches the top of the tank, the upper heating element will act on the hot water to keep it hot. However, should either (or both) of these heating elements fail, it can result in hot water turning cold quickly or there may be a lack of hot water entirely.
Most caravans have an air heater. This heats the air inside the caravan by drawing in air and heating it in a burner. The air is then distributed evenly throughout the vehicle via warm air ducts and outlets with the aid of a fan. Water heating systems are installed mainly in top-of-the-range caravans.
You can expect an electric hot water system to last on average between 10 and 15 years.
An average 40-gallon heater will only take about 30 to 40 minutes to provide heat water, while you can expect hot water from a larger tank (80-gallons) in approximately 60 to 70 minutes. Electric hot water tanks, on the other hand, will take a little longer.
How long does it take to heat a 250 Litre hot water system? The general rule of thumb is 1 hour for every 100 Litres of water. So if your system isn`t hot in 2.5 hours for a 250 Litre it would be wise to contact Refined Plumbing.
An anode will be inside most tank style caravan hot water systems and should be inspected every 6 months and replaced when it has degraded any more than 50% of its original diameter.

Coleman hot water on demand
Does anyone have a AC charger for the Hot Water Heater on Demand? I would be willing to buy one.
I have Detroit 60 series installed on a launch. Recently the Starboard unit suffers a catastrophic failure and piston No2 came out of the block, making a big hole. This engines are using heat exchangers, and sea water cooled Charge Air Coolers and sea water self priming raw water pump. We contact the local dealer an the veredict was a “Massive salt water ingestion” that caused an Hydraulic lock and damaged cyls 6 and 2. They say that the water came from the deck covers, but there is no way for that to happen, I think they dont want to honor any warranty, because we suspect that the water came from the Charge Air Cooler. I want to know if the CAC can cause that type of failures and if anyone had a similar problem. The engine cost is about 66K and only had 2300 hours.
I would have to say that a sleeve got pitted or lost an oring or the CAC sprung a leak. I believe you are correct in your assumption that the water did not enter the unit in the manner they are saying. The only real way to tell is a complete tear down and someone is going to have to pay. They are also a high maintenance item and someone is going to say that the preventive maintenance was not done.

Hi i have a Coleman hot water on demand and the water wont heat up past luke warm, help needed please
Need to restrict the water input so it does not flow through so fast
I have a volvo penta md7a marine diesel engine fitted in my sailing boat. Recently, I changed the bottom sea **** which was almost blocked. Apparently the new sea **** is working well as it should. But this week with no apparent reason and without use of engine, I noticed that the cooling system water cup (the recipient which connects with the sea **** hose and the water pump hose) is empty and it Im not able to keep it full like it was before.The water vanishes every time I tried to fill it up in order to keep the water running throught the system. However the waterpump seems to be working. But almost no water is coming out of the exhaustor, of course, just a few drops once in a while. What might be going on ?? Thanks.
I don’t have a picture of the installation, but I can imagine a water filter above the water line with an improperly fitted cover and an air leak that lets the seawater drain out – losing the prime. Old Swampy in New Hampshire
Water system in my Coleman pop up not working
There is a 3 port valve conneted to the incomming water line (white usually). It is actually a check valve to keep the outside water from overfilling your tank. Verify it is installed correctly.
Colemans hot water on demand.new battery ,plenty of gas .works on cold,but not on hot
If it is out of warranty there is a fuse inside them that is covered with a light rubber coating, it is the common glass style fuse. That may be causing your issue assuming the battery is ok. The batteries die regularly too especially if it hasnt been charged and is sitting around.
