You need someone that will disassemble the burner and clear the orifice. Or find the broken wire.


One last thought, chase the hose back to the next junction. See if it's kinked.

You didn't mention how old the rig is but it appears that you have a electronic ignition, so no pilot to light. That's a good thing.

It's a 2005. And that's what I've gathered...no pilot. So, I guess that's a good thing.

Question, would a blown fuse have anything to do with the gas not being released to the spark? Could I be missing a fuse somewhere?

Here are some pics I took just a bit ago. This are all from my water heater.

Do you have a multimeter? Check to see if the gas solenoid is even getting power to open and close it.
Probably the red wire coming out of the upper bundle and connecting to the left of the one that says T.Stat.

I was camping with a friend with a new Winnebago that has a gas only water heater and it wasn't working. Traced it down to a loose wire behind the interior control panel switches.

Are you getting power? If not the problem is in wiring not with the water heater.

Okay, so I am about to ask a really dumb question....and I hope I'm not about to make myself look like an idiot....do I need to be hooked up to power for my water heater to work....?? Because I haven't been. I was just trying to run the propane water heat, while not hooked up to any power.




But, here is an update, I FINALLY got the old heating element out, and put the new one in, then fired up my ELECTRIC water heat and finally got hot water!! I'm ecstatic, because we leave for a 3 day camping trip in about 5 hours. I'm still a bit frustrated that I don't know how to get the propane water heat going, just as a backup...but it's not a huge deal at THIS point. Thanks for all the help and tips.

The board light in the video maybe on a newer type board. The gas side of the water heater is 12V so you either need to be hooked up to a fully charged batter or on shore power with the inverter supplying 12Vs to the heater.

Glad to see you got the electrical part figured out!
