Atwood HW Heater - Replaced Heat Sensor

I have a 165 Sport with a gas Atwood HW heater with an active pilot.
I've been having trouble lighting it lately.
The pilot would not stay lit.
There was an RV repair shop across the street from the CG I am at.
I took out the heat sensor thermocouple, cleaned it with no improvement.
So, I took the part across the street and the guy had several used units in the back.
He pulled a thermocouple out of a used unit and gave it to me.
I cleaned it up and installed it.
Ah, everything works now. No charge :-)

Nice when a plan comes together.

Yep glsimms,
We had a down day today so it was nice to tinker a little bit and actually fix something lol

The only tool I used was a pair of pliers.

Nice for the DW to have hot water :-)
