Monitor Panel/Water Heater troubles
« on: August 02, 2017, 10:31:36 PM »
Hi there, I have a 2008 Pioneer Spirit travel trailer and I've run into a confusing issue with my water heater and monitor panel. I'm hoping someone can help point me in the right direction for troubleshooting.

I was having an issue with not having hot water, my monitor panel was working fine. It's a simple KIB panel shows tank level, battery indicator and has a switch for the HTR and Pump. All were working when I started down my water heater troubleshooting mission. My thermal cutoff switch appeared to be my problem. Water heater would not light up when connected to cutoff switch, when I removed it to bypass, the water heater lit up. I disconnected the bypass as I went to go find a new cutoff switch.

Found a new thermal cutoff switch, check it all for good continuity and now my monitor panel doesn't light up for the tank levels, battery indicator and HTR switch. The water pump switch does light up and pump is working fine.

I checked all the fuses I can find and they all check out, I reset my breaker switches and still no luck with my monitor panel.

Has anyone run into this issue and have any suggestions? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's not a dumb question if you do not know the answer.
