I run the generator every day until it goes to "float." I also monitor the batteries throughout the day and they never dip below 12.8v.
Now that I'm plugged in to shore power, I've had no issues. Any words of wisdom or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Brand/Model would be helpfull
W.A.G (wild a$$ GUESS) would be:
Low DC Voltage to water heater
Fault occurred in lighting/proving flame lit
2002 Vintage......on those models (Atwood or Suburban)
Electric and Propane are separate circuits
*Propane needs 12VDC & good propane flow
*Electric needs 120VAC (no DC used for AC controls)
IF Water Heater is GAS ONLY
Low DC Voltage (WH functions when Generator is ON)
Turning switch off/back on resets circuit board lock-out from fault
