All in all, today was a great day!


A very good day!

Loose wire???

I recently had the same issue. Dealer said that the wire to the control board was loose. All good now. It was frustrating but glad it was a simple fix.

Same problem on my brand new Jayco 333. It was the board! What is going on? Is Atwood addressing the problem?

You may want to consider getting a Dinosaur Control board. I have seen many users that are very happy with them. They are made for different applications, this one is for Atwood water heaters. It may need a cover because it appears to have the components potted in. https://www.amazon.com/Dinosaur-Elec...339574&sr=8-13

I had the same issue with my 6 week old jayco 322rlok eagle. I got it working for another day by regapping the ignitor and cleaning the surface where the ignitor attatched to the bracket.

The control board stopped igniting the next day anyway. My dealer will be getting me a replacement (iím still waiting 7 days later) I just ordered a dinosaur board from amazon and had it working withing minutes of raplacing the board.

The dinosaur board changes the indicator light behavior- it now lights up when attempting to light and goes out when flame is detected- I prefer this anyway.

The dinosaur board also has indicator lights so you can easily see what is happening- I would higly recommend it. It cost me 140$ with amazon prime but was worth it to me not towing my camper back to the dealer and not being able to use it while they farted around with it. The dealer also shared that 2/3 of replacement boards have been defective as well.

I did test all of the other suggestions above first.

Just got my SLX 267BHSW in February and my WH quit also after working perfectly for about 3 months. Mine is gas only, dealer just repaired last week with a new control board. Mine would start the gas flow which we could hear, but no spark to the igniter. I could light it manually with a grill lighter but it would go out after a couple seconds. Works ok now, knock on wood (as I'm leaving w 2 ladies in a couple days for a week long trip, their first trip in the new trailer).

This is what I bought


It came with everything needed, I did need to flip the metal mounting plate around to fit the original mounting holes and the protective boot doesn’t fit with the plastic cover very well

I am nervous about all of this talk of control boards failing. Mine does not have electric for the water heater (to my limited knowledge). My TT is a Jayflight 195RB. Does it even have such a board? I have always manually lit the pilot...
