Water Heater Question.
Just got back from a wonderful week long trip. Now to sort out the questions the trip raised.
This one is related to the Dometic 6 Gallon Gas Water heater and Unitrol pilot ignition. I am hoping other folks with the same or similar unit/trailer config can weigh in.
First, the Pilot is sort of a pain to light, but I can live with that. However, the pilot light went out twice in what I would consider mild wind conditions. (Perhaps one was mild, the second was "breezy" but less than I would expect.)
It was irritating to have to go light the pilot in that "breezy" condition after the better half informed me there was no Hot Water for an evening (dark) shower.
(At least the heater seems to respond quick. It does not take long to bring the water up to temp!)
Is it normal for the pilot to extinguish fairly frequently on this rig / set up?
Do I need to make checking the Pilot light a twice daily task?
Sort of unrelated, is there a trick or tip people use to secure the access door clasp latch so it does not inadvertently open? I could see that happening, although it did not.
