Give us some more info.
Has it ever worked properly since you have owned the bus?
Did it just stop working?
I assume the cold water comes out of the faucets?
Just no hot water?
You say no flow to the water heater,do you mean no flow to the faucets?

Default Hot water

I have acquired a 1990 wb 40 Ok I got water to the hot water tank , got it hot (dometic) style. Gotta change the element. But when I turn old the cold water in any faucet it activates the pump , when I turn on the hot it’s doesn’t activate the pump and the water will run hot untill the pressure is depleted and pump never comes on ? Any help would be greatly appreciated

OK,we asked before,asking again,whats the history of the coach?
Where did you get it?
Was it sitting for a long time?
Is it pink?
Did it belong to a dentist?
Have you hooked up to shore water to see if it works properly?

Long and short of it, he is not getting pressure on the hot water side... sounds like something is keeping the water from going into the hot water heater.. I know this issue has been discussed, forget what causes it..

Versa valve (if a 90 WB still had one).

I was thinking no versa valves on the WB's.
But it was just a guess.

Same here. My 91 WB doesn’t have one but 90 was a transition year so I’m not sure. Another possibility is that a water heater bypass has been added.

I'm thinking versa valve if it has one, stuck or no air pressure in the wrong position, or maybe someone added HWT bypass valves, and are in the wrong position. There are also check valves in line to keep the hot water from backing up into the cold, very doubtful but could be stuck.
Need more detailed symptoms
