Any possibility that you are out of propane? or a blockage in the line? Check by firing up one of your burners on the stove.

Stuck Solenoid...

Hi Andy,
This might sound crazy, but mine did the same thing this weekend. Having been a boater for 20 years, I have fixed many a stuck solenoids in my time. If you have the Gen 3 Girard tankless (or some Gen 2's), they do not have a reset button. The Gen 3's solenoids are on the left side of the unit just behind the main circuit board. Turn on the water heater, have someone inside turn on the hot water. When you hear the ticking of the piezo ignition, take a wrench or the end of a screwdriver and tap on the solenoids. Keep tapping until you see the flame ignite. I hope this fixes your problem as it is a simple one! Good luck!
Joe

All the burners on the stove, my Camp Chef grill and the refrigerator work on propane.

The sail switch works too.

Here's the picture I sent Jayco of my unit that has no Reset button.

I've got Jayco looking into it now as it's under warranty.

I'll let you know what they say.

Thanks.

All of the other gas appliances worked in my Greyhawk as well. It was just the tankless that did not. The pic is def not a Gen 3 Girard. I'd still give the solenoid a tap as it controls the gas flow into the tankless burner!! Also, do you hear the ticking of the piezo's as you are trying to run the hot water? If not then it's electrical. A whole different beast!
Good luck!
Joe

Yep. I hear the clicking. Now there's no blower now like there used to be when I try it to see if it will work. Just the clicking.

Hooked up a new water heater. Same thing. Clicking, no red light, no ignition. I guess it's not getting propane? How could the frig and stove be getting propane and not the water heater?

Okay. Thinking it may be the gas I checked that. It's getting gas. I check the electrical and there's NO power. All the fuses are good on the fuse/circuit breaker panel by the bed. Now what? It there an in-line fuse somewhere? It says in the manual that it is protected by an 10A fuse, but I don't see on the panel.

Hi Andy,
Sorry to hear that you're still having problems. On mine, there is an inline (at the tankless) glass fuse. The pic below shows mine. Also, if you still suspect it might be the gas, the solenoids are below and just behind where the fuse is. They can absolutely stick closed and a couple of taps will do the trick.
Good luck,
Joe

It was the fuse panel position that the water heater was using. I didn'y think it was an issue because the bunk DVD players share that connection. However, when I moved the water heater to an open position it started working. OMG. Who woulda thunk?
