Went to put fresh water in my boat the last weekend and it just burps it back out. Even if barely turn the hose on it comes back out the fill? Any hints or some thing I should look for.

Also, While I have this thread going, Anyone know how to turn the hot water tank on? Thinking it may be a spare switch on panel since there is nothing labeled for it? Thanks again for all the help

Assuming that your vent is open and there's no kink in the fill hose l'd be tempted to run a snake down the fill hose to make sure there isn't something blocking the line.

As for the water heater , I don't know anything about how they do things on your model .. do they actually use a heater tank as opposed to an 'instant on' heater unit ? At any rate , if you have a shore power panel , there ought to be a switch on there somewhere .
Or possibly , if it does have a 'hot water tank' is it possible that it's only set up to run off a heat exchanger from one of the engines ?
