I searched threads first...this may not be related only to Newmar but my friends coach has an intermittent problem of not going to LP from ac on his fridge ....pilot light comes on small but occasionally won't come on high enough to do the job.....and sometimes it does. had some one scheduled to come out and it started working....anyone experience a similar issue?

Make sure the gas valve is completely turned on behind fridge and the Flame sensor ceramic may have a build up of carbon on sensor that needs to be cleaned.
May have rust that has fallen down on burner that has to be cleaned also.

Thanks Mike for posting my frige problem and telling me about this neat irv2 web site and thanks 007 for the tips. The burner is clean and the 1/8" high pilot flame is even all across the burner, but just won't get large to do it's job. I will test again today and try to locate this "ceramic flame sensor". After testing again I'll try to elaborate on the problem and post it on the appliance section.

Thanks much,

Gene

Hi Newmarfan,
Welcome to the iRV2 forum and the Newmar Owner's Forum. Assuming all is clean and well maintained, what altitude (above sea level) are you at? My water heater gas does not work above 5.5K and my refrigerator gas does not work above 6.5K above sea level.

Hi GaryKD,

I'm near sea level, but thanks for the altitude info.

I guess I have an intermittent problem because it worked yesterday. Not sure if this is why; but I turned the small brass knob below the solenoid on the gas line back and forth a few times the day before and the flame went from 1/8 inch to about one inch to function OK on Propane. If I can't get a large flame again, I'll try that little brass knob to see if that will correct it.

Thank you,
Gene

Welcome Newmarfan to Newmar family & irv2.
You should open the brass valve until its open all the way and tab is level as in line with piping.
Have your LP tank valve fully open also.
