Atwood Water Heater Problems
Full timers just got back from FL and noticed warm water yesterday (Monday) when taking shower. All day wife said water was only warm. Our water heater has electric and gas heating elements. So, I decided to turn on gas. Burner kicked on and ran for about 5 minutes. Still only warm water. Checked fuse and other electrical on the water heater. Seems to check ok. However, propane stayed on longer when outside door was left open.
This morning I checked it again, only warm water. Opened outside door again and propane stayed on for about 10-15 minutes. Water is warmer, but still not hot.
We did have very hard water in FL where we stayed the winter. And I have not drained the tank in 4 years. Do you think it is full of sediment or corrosion? Any fixes for that?
