He had me check the reset button in the WH box that Darrell mentioned in the earlier post and that fixed the problem once we reset it. He also told us to adjust our water temp with the dial and not so much with cold water. Quick and easy fix and it saved a trip back to the dealer.
Hope this helps.
RBDSM3. CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR new Greyhawk.
Thanks for the follow up so others can find the easy fixes and avoid the frustrations.
Very good point on adjusting the dial. Think about it. The water coming through the WH is not affected by any "cold" water you add with the faucet, so the WH keeps heating until it is maxed.
Enjoy your rig

Foster, do you by chance know where that wire is located. Could be something the rest of us could do a preventive check so as not to have the problem occur.
Microwave............hmmmmmm. Noise while moving? Give us something more as to when the rattle/clatter occur

We have ours set in the 1 o'clock position now. During the warmer months we had it set just above the "low flame" mark. In other posts on this same subject posters have noted they called Girard 866-559-1221. Very positive customer service and walked poster through finding the reset button and all was good.
Best to you. The system does work very well..........just a matter of getting acquainted with the difference.
You didn't say if the microwave rattle was while you are in transit. Plate and roller ring will definitely do some moving around like nbhybrid noted.

Took our first long trip, eight days and 1300 miles, last week. While showering with some really cold water at a Tennessee mountain state park, the Girard WH cut off. It made for a very invigorating, and quick, shower.

Called Girard and their tech told me where to find the mystery reset button which fixed the problem. Thought I'd add a picture showing its location.

Hi All. Re my Seneca TS and microwave noise. I have, I believe, narrowed the noise down to the friction between the microwave and the metal wall bracket that is behind the micro and carries the weight of the micro. I have used a support from behind the cooktop up to the bottom rear of the micro to take some load off the back bracket. That took away 90% or more of the noise.

Before it was unbearable; now tolerable. Please let me know of others have problem and a more presentable fix.

Have any of you guys had problems with tankless WH going HOT/COLD HOT/COLD while showering? How did you fix the problem?

That is a problem I have noticed, too. I adjusted the WH control knob on the bathroom wall to be a lower temperature and was able to increase my water flow with the shower knob. That seemed to even it out a little bit. I still have not mastered the tankless WH though.

I don't know that I can say I have mastered the tankless WH but I have to say, we have had nothing but success....knock on wood. I will give you the steps we have followed.
I never bleed the water system even when we are travelling or when it is in storage for a week or 2. After all we use water from the fresh water tank in transit.
I never shut the WH switch off until I am through for the season and prepping to winterize.
I set the dial just above the "coldest" setting on the dial in the bathroom when we were having daytime temps in the 80s+. When the ambient temp was in the 60s-70s, I moved the dial to about 12 o'clock to or 1 o'clock. I found that gave us hotter water..... almost too hot in the shower, but great temp for doing dishes. So I tempered it toward the "cooler" side of the dial.....10 -11 o'clock or so. If we are at a location for several days and I make the initial adjustment, I leave it alone.

When we arrive at a destination where we will have water hookup, I hook up to the faucet, run the hose full and then hook up to the RV connection. I am trying to keep the system void of air.
When I turn on a hot faucet in the RV (makes no difference which one) I turn it on full flow. Once the cold water in the line is displaced with heated water, I reduce the flow to about 1/2. I then allow the water to run as it becomes hotter. Once the water becomes uncomfortably hot, I add volume but NEVER add cold. The slower the water flow the hotter it will be. If you add cold water to the mix at the shower head or faucet, you are not changing anything at the WH and the burner will continue to heat until it is maxed and shuts down.
One of the complaints I have read is the amount of "cold" water people have to run before they get hot. For us, that is not an issue............our prior RV, a 37' 5er had the WH at a rear corner and the shower was 25 feet away.
Hope this rambling helps.
Sure appreciate the pic NC Roamer gave us of the elusive reset button. I thought I had located it but haven't used it so wasn't positive.
Darrell
