Water heater

Silly me. Didn't check to see if worked after dewinterizing. Heater doesn't come on. Is there a simple connection that maybe needs to be done to get it to work? Maybe lp connect valve? Need coffee before trying anything.

Do you have the standard five button comand?

Try the fan speed in the low position rather than "auto".

Not sure. We are lucky enough to be stuck in rt95 traffic just south of wash. I'll work on it when we get to destination - hopefully sometime today!! Silly dh - he didn't check for construction delays!!

Does the stove work? Sometimes it takes a while to get air out of the LP lines after being shut down for a long period, and the stove will clear the air out fairly fast.

If the stove works, but the water heater still doesn't, check the water heater burner tube for a spider nest.

The stove works. At least it did before trip. Is there an electrode connected to water heater? That just had to be replaced on fridge.

Are you talking gas, or electric? If electric, the need to have the heater full before switching on is important because it will burn out an element very fast. If it is the gas, you may need a new thermocouple. You can get one at any hardware or Home Depot cheaper than an RV dealer. The suggestion above of a bug plug is a good one as well.
