Depends on your unit, if you have an auto start like most of the newer ones, just leave it on and it will kick in by eletronic ingintion along with the propane, if you have the older type the pilot light stays lite but burns propane but kicks in a higher mold to heat up the water, untill it reaches the temps once it reaches the temp the pilot lite will return into a small flame untill needed again., at least this is what was explain to me.
Ours is just forward of the bedroom and the burner is noisy when all else is quiet at 03:00. It's a propane/115V heater, so when we're on CG power we use the electric side. It doesn't seem to work off the same thermostat, as the hot water isn't as hot on electric.
