WH Blown - no electric?

Hi All

Today while winterizing the trailer, I emptied the water heater although the electric was turned on shortly thereafter. Considering the warning (Which i didnt read) I assume I burned out the element because there is no now power anywhere in the RV except for in the kitchen. Does a blown element also cause issues with breakers, fuses, or something that i am not noticing in the access panel?

Thanks for all of your advice for this newbie.

David

For any thing lights etc? Or just anything that involves the camper to be plugged in?

There is no power to anything besides the kitchen area outlets.

Check all the breakers cycle them off and back on. The element probably tripped one. The lighting should work if you have the battery hooked up but without power they will not light if there is no battery. Don't know what you have for a camper but there should be 3 breakers a 30 amp a 20 and a 15. The 30 powers the other two.

When the element burned up it probably tripped the breaker. The element is surely ruined at this point. Simply disconnect the element, tape the wires, and then flip the breakers to reset
