Water heater

Recommended Posts

Getting my 08 Monaco diplomat ready to go the the Monaco gathering,   yesterday I checked the water heater and it keeps kicking  the bedroom 20 amp breaker.

I switched breakers but didn’t help.

I put new heating element in also. It works good on gas but not 110 v. It’s a Atwood water heater .

Any suggestions what to check next ?

We have an 08 Endeavor so should have the same layout basically.

The water heater plugs into an outlet near the heater. Unplug from that and see if your breaker trips immediately again. If so, the water heater is not at fault and you will have to work backwards from that. 

If it does not trip, follow the power cord to a black box on or near the water heater and open it up for inspection.

A 12 volt relay controls the 110 volts to the water heater. 

The files attached have a lot of information. When you open a pdf there could be a yellow post it note. Mouse over or click it to open the note.
