The upper sheet metal can removed with just a couple of screws. take a coat hanger, bend the end in a loop small loop, shove it in the flue. Move the coat hanger in and out of the flue.

May your black water hose never break!

Let my resurrect this thread with a question.

doing the test the valve track has a high resistance nearly a meg ohm, that means circuit board is bad, right.

It lights off good and has good flame but shuts down after a few seconds.

Embarrising Story About Lighting Hot Water Heater


So I have a silly story. We left Colorado Springs headed to our new destination and excited to travel with the travel trailer. Prior to winter I paid the shop to winterize the trailer because I didn't know how to and felt scared to try it. My son and I went the entire time without hot water until we stayed at Travis AFB campground. I could NOT for the life of me figure out why we couldn't get hot water even after reading my manual. None of it made sense. We had to use the campground showers along the way and thank God for them! Finally, finally someone mentioned a valve that apparently was turned off when winterizing the trailer. I asked so many people. I had already called Pikes Peak Traveland and asked what they did when they winterized our trailer. I thought they tore up the water heater but told myself surely not and it's a 2015 trailer. I called a couple of times in hopes of help. They never mentioned a valve. I guess people have a hard time understanding me sometimes because not knowing how to explain things and being somewhat new with the trailer use. Finally and thankfully a guy at the campground flipped a valve and boom, we had hot water. Oh my goodness I was so happy! I wanted to hug everybody around...hehe. I felt so Stu..d. BTW, we love Pikes Peak Traveland but they just didn't understand what I was saying because I didn't know how to explain it. I would have never winterized it right by myself because I wouldn't have known about turning that valve thingamajig.

Y'all have a great day!
Go Bama even though we lost recently : - (

Wires in the water tank????? Wow, they must think you are really old and in need of a good fleecing!!!!

I wonder what the wires would do? Hmmm..... I sure would like to ask them! did you use a coat hanger to check for flue impediments?

Ok, so in the past I've said there is one item that a fella should have who is going to have an RV. Now I revise that , not only does one need a battery load tester, one should spring for a "manometer" or propane gas pressure tester. Hopefully your RV shop tested the propane pressure when it worked on your water heater.

However, if they want to you to replace the wires in the tank, then I would guess that they would recommend that you can hook the water heater (1/2 psi) directly to the propane tank (125 psi) with no gas regulator... No, don't do this....

May your black water hose never break!
