Water heater issue need help asap
« on: September 30, 2017, 04:30:01 PM »
Hello all,

I have a 1986 Coachmen Class A 36' 30amp Motorhome. Yesterday I removed the RV ammonia refrigerator because it never worked, never worked since I bought it, after I took the fridge out, the next day (today sept 30 2017) the water heater stopped working. I flipped the switch today and nothing happened, the light isn't on, and the pilot won't click.

Tested the circuit at the switch and it ohms out for both the light power and switch power. I went to the heater panel outside and have not been able to get any voltage reading from anything.  I'm not sure what else to check. Any feedback would be helpful.
I detached the wires from the E.C.O. and thermostat and 2 out of 4 we're extremely rusted through and just crumbled off.
