Suburban hot water heater

i have a 2011 big horn 5th wheel, I am having difficulty in keeping my hot water going on propane. I first fill the tank with water and turn on propane and then the electrical switches, it ignites an burns and gets the water warm, then shuts down. Will not reignite, and water never gets hot.

I could not even get mine going and had to take it in to a service center where they replaced the potted electronics, Works great now. Unfortunately like many electronics after you clean the contacts and make sure you have power there is not much you can do.

It's a good argument for the older style water heaters that had no electronics. Not much to go wrong, and if they don't work it's an easy fix, even in the boonies.
