 Water heater
Author: Wayne2016 (RI)

I recently bought a 1987 Commadore Manufacture Home
We can not find the Hot water heater any where.
I need to find the shut off for the water.
Can you please help?
We looked every where in the house.
We have unscrewed Panals, in the bathroom also.
Looked in all the closets.
Even in the kitchen cabinets.
Can it be under the house?
Thank you.

Can you call the people you bought it from and ask them?

I doubt it is outside the heated living space. Keep looking, check the hallway, bathroom and kitchen areas, places that use hot water. It may be a short one, less than knee high.

Find a bedroom closet that shares the bathroom wall and look for a panel at the end of the closet.

Here is a discussion where someone had a similar question, it might give you some ideas where to look:


If not in the bedroom closets (especially the closet closest to the bathroom) they sometimes are in a space that the access panel is on the outside of the trailer, even though the water heater is inside the shell of the home. Take a good look all around the outside for a removable access panel.

It is usually in an outside "closet", but if it is electric it COULD be inside a cabinet near the sink.
