Thumbs up 1977 Holiday Rambler

Hey Fellow RV'ers,
Well I am GREEN at this, and I do mean GREEN! Had to have somewhere to live, and this is where I is. Can't get the hotwater heater to light....yes I need a shower...giggle Now my question is: Does this run off of one of the batteries? I flip the switch and the red light doesn't come on....yes it did work up til now....help! I'm begining to smell or is this part of the RV journey...hehe

Thanks for your help!

There are 2 main mfg's of water heaters. Each carries both pilot (with reignitor) and Direst Spark Ignition (DSI) models. All of them can be obtained with both gas and electric variations. Your 77 rig could have anyone of those variations. So, would you please go outside and open the water heater door and see if you can find the model number. For a Surburban unit, it would be something like SW6P, SW6D, SW6PE, SW6DE, etc. For a Atwood unit, it would be something like G6A-7, G6A-7P, G6A-8E, etc.

Hey Dave,
Thanks for the response....It is an Atwood, but the serial number I cannot read. Now I have decovered after wigging wires on one of the 3 batteries I got a response. I will clean the post today,and see if the 2 secondary batteries will take a charge.....still not sure if there is a pilot light or it just ignights each time I need to use it. Yes I was abe to take a shower yesterday....I may not look better, but I sure smell better! giggle Thanks for your help, and God bless!

Tom
