You have not posted anything about your coach. Does it have a kitchen slide with fridge and WH on same slide? Have you followed the gas line under coach just to make sure you have no kinks in the service line from LP tank. If they are on slide may have a blocked flexible line.

Perhaps you do have a HW heater problem if the igniter on the hot water heater does not shut off after lighting the burner.

Assuming you received uncontaminated propane when you refilled, the possibility of two simultaneous problems are not so remote.

Assuming that you don't have a propane problem, check your 12v at both the WH and fridge. If you do then pull each 12v connection on both units, including the grounds, and clean the connections and then apply some dielectric grease to prevent corrosion. My bet is that you either have low 12v or dirty connections based on the continuous ignition at the one unit. DSI (Direct Spark Ignition) units are sensitive to electrical noise and voltage especially the sensing circuit for the presence of the flame.

You have most likely gotten a load of water in the propane tank. Your main flames may look good to you but are insuffient to hold the flame monitor circuits. Very wet gas does this very thing. You can have alcohol added to your tank or have it drained and flushed or purged.Good luck!!

OK. I'll bite. That really appears to be what is happening. Check voltage...Good. Water heater lit improperly first time today, then went off. The second flame looked good, and was good enough to continue the process. I was never able to get the fridge to do the same. The hot part of the flame doesn't seem high enough to get to the thermocouple, let alone get enough heat for the fridge to work properly.
