Water Pump Pressure???

Should the water pump pressurize the whole system including the water heater?

If so, is it recommended to use the water heater while using the water pump? I don't want a molten pile of Airstream!

Thanks,
Steve

Yes, it should. As long as the water heater is full of water, it will not melt down. If you run your fresh water tank down to zero, you will still have a full water heater tank, unless you drain it through the drain valve in the heater tank itself.

Thank You

Thank you for the quick response...we are heading to the Smokies and of course I have some last minute questions. I appreciate all the shared knowledge on these forums and look forward to the day when I can be helping instead of asking.

If the heater's on, maintain pressure..

I think question reversed.. I f you're going to use the water heater, then you should either be connected to "city water" with a hose and valve opened, or the pump should be on to maintain pressure from the tank. If you're not confident in pump, and leaving the trailer, turn off the water heater when you're away...
