Are you getting cold from the faucet? If not check the faucet aerators,and head on shower.If you are , do you have a valve shut off coming from water heater? Did this just happen,or is this the first try out? Dave

Welcome to the forums.
We need more info. Are you having trouble with the water heater in your Sovereign? What brand and size is the water heater? Are you connected to city water, or just the onboard pump? If you are connected to city water, is there water pressure at the hose?

I actually ran into something similar recently; I found that turning the various valves on the plumbing at the hot water heater itself let the hot water flow:

I can't explain why this worked, but it did: just one turn and back to the original position did the trick like nothing was ever wrong

Cheers,

The valve in the center bypasses the water heater if opened. The other two valves turn off flow to and from the tank.

Um...yes.

I was just suggesting that even though the valves may look to be in their normal operational position, go ahead and close-then-open them again. One of mine acted like it was clogged or something, and operating it once or twice seemed to clear things up -- suddenly I heard "thank you!" from the shower the moment I did this.

I was baffled why this even worked, with a newer trailer and not a hitch before or since (it was about a year ago when it happened).

Cheers,
