Trip south - no lp for Hot Water Tank - No water to kitchen Faucet?

First day on trip from Vancouver BC to Palm Springs ride was great 2007 Caymen 38'. Pulled in for first night and no LPG had to fire with AC that works. Any ideas why no propane to hot water tank. Full LPG tank. Other appliances work - furnace, fridge and stove.. Also no water to kitchen sink faucet. The drinking water tap works and all other faucets??

Side note: driving south of Seattle hit a rough stretch on I5 Cayman started proposing hitting several section joints I didn't think it was going to stop!! I'm getting the REK installed at source eng. in Eugene on Jan 2 looking forward to the new ride!

Any thoughts

Happy New Year to all.

Further to the above the hot water tank shows a"DSI" fault. Will check manual tomorrow.

DSI = Direct Spark Ignition, meaning the furnace didn't light and caused it to quit trying. I think it tries three times then quits. Might need the contoll board replaced to fix it.

Hurk. You will love the REK. It makes a lot of difference in the porpoising and harshness of hard bumps. Try turning the 12 volt WH off and then back on. Mine occasionally will not start first try and then will after dsi light comes on. At least give it a try. Happy new year.

Hello from Dan.
the DSI starts a pilot light, then when it senses the heat from the pilot light, it turns on propane to the main flame unit.
It is common for the 2 thermal sensors connections to become a little oxidized and not flow electrical current letting it turn on the propane.
Usually sliding the connections on and of a couple of time will clean them up enough and could correct the problem. the 2 sensors are the max temp sensor and the over temp sensor.. the 12V goes in one, over to 2 then to the valve. make sure you have 12V at the valve. if not, chase it back through the sensors and the source. ( control box ? ) simple and could save you replacing a bunch of costly parts.. ;-)
Hope this helps.

onthe faucet

I had no water to the kitchen as well - took apart the pull out head and took it apart - had broken pieces of plastic blocking the flow.
