So sorry I have not responded, but read and worked till company got here then just had to stop and host company...I had themuse the campground bathhouse...company just left and I will continue working on problem tomorrow..thanksfor all good advice. My stopping work point I had hot water running to faucet only when I bypassed the water heater...when I include it in the loop no water goes into tank with pressure release valve open or even with valve open and bottom plug out...is there maybe a backflow valve at water heater that could be bad??? Will be at it again in am...pooped and going to bed...this single grandma is tired and frustrated...thanks again

When was the last time the water heater was serviced?

Was working... Then after winterizing will not fill up...gas works just no water comes in...

There is a backflow preventer at the cold water inlet to prevent hot water from pushing back into the cold water piping as it expands or a cold water faucet is opened. If it is stuck shut you would not be able to fill the WH.

So, no mater what you do the tank is dry. The "hot water" you mention above is not hot but simply water flowing from the hot side faucet. Correct? If this is the case you have a bad check valve on the water heater. Just from memory () I think you have one for the cold in and the hot out. Replace the and I think you will be back in hot water. It this case this is a good thing.

At this point I suggest that you call the factory. With your SN they can tell you exactly where the check valve is and the part #. When I did a web search on the topic there are many other RV forums that have found this to be the problem.

Keep us posted. Thank.

The parts list for your model Atwood water heater does not show the one-way valve as part of the heater. This back-flow prevention valve is a common plumbing part available from about all RV parts and plumbing supply stores. Here is the Atwood water heater service manual, which may be helpful in case of other problems.
