Glad you got it working. Now, help out the next person with this same problem by telling us what it turned out to be and how you fixed it. That’s the great thing about forums like this; the knowledge gained by one can live on for the benefit of others.

Thanks to the NEWMAR group on Facebook, I learned there is 3 valves behind the hot water tank.
The top and bottom must be open.
The one that is in the line that connects the cold and hot water, must be off.

Do you know if someone winterized your rig before you bought it? You usually only see those valves changed when someone has winterized the rig.

Sorry, I should have read your rebuild thread first and you answered that you took a shower, so the anti-freeze would have been flushed before taking a shower.
