Hot water problems...and fixed!

Well our first camp out proved I have some maintenance to do on our hot water tank. Seems that when the hot water gets hot, the flow slows to a trickle. We made it through the camp out and here is what repair had to be done.

Looking at the back of the tank from inside the MH shows no way to get at the "check valves" on the inlet and outlet of the hot water tank. So I pulled the circuit breaker box out to take a look behind. Still not enough room. That only leaves pulling the tank out from outside the MH.

The pictures show the steps taken, and the problem maker. That little white "check" valve.

Removed the check valve and re-installed the tank. Wow...a 5 hour job! Hopefully I won't have to do that again. Checked the flow the next day after work, no leaks. Great! Now our next trip is planned for June a trip to Branson. I sure hope this problem is cured.
