DV,
When you look at the water heater from the outside, can you see a triangular piece in the exhaust vent? If so, make sure that it freely moves back and forth. There is also a reset button toward the back of the heater if it is a Girard. Not sure where but maybe someone here can give you the exact location. Also, I would give the transfer switch a rap when you are plugged into a 50 amp outlet to see if it will free up and make the connection.

The last comment about not getting pist off.
I am related the purchase of this coach to the purchase of a house. This coach coast more then my house when I bought it. The problems I had with my house where fixed right away, not halfway done and tell me that it is done ready for use.
Or if you would like to compare this to a car that coast less then what I used for my down payment. If a dealer and manufacturer gave the Poor service that it is obvious the RV world gives. It would be all over the evening News and the dealer would be out of business or hurting for business until they proved they have customer service.
I did spend almost $200,000 on this coach and would like to know if the manufacturing company releases that . We had a Country Coach that was burned in a fire. We had NO issues like I'm having know with it.
So please explain why I should not be getting pist off.

Thanks TMM
I had found the reset button and and that has done nothing. It is acting like it is not getting fuel.
The transfer switch I have hit it many times when I had it plugged it. It got fried at one of the shops the coach was in.
Thank you I do appreciate the help

DV,
What is the year and model of your coach? Do you have propane in your tank and is it turned on?

DV,
1. Your water heater can be serviced at any authorized dealer for the brand of heater.
2. As to the transfer switch, sould like you need to replace it.

When we needed a transfer switch replaced, FR made arragements for the local CW to replace it, took about a week for them to send to CW and took CW about a hour to replace.

Randy and Mitch at FR diesel division have for the most part been very helpful in working out the issues. Sounds like your local FR dealers have not been very helpful or timely in getting thing fixed for you.

Best of luck and happy travels

DV, good news. Now on to the transfer switch. If you can take out the Hot Water heater, I'm sure you can handle the transfer switch. Might want to call Randy or Mitch and see if they will send you one.

X2!!

Sounds like you had a loose connection somewhere and it was corrected when you put the water heater back in.

The sail switch is one to always watch. Also if you had yours in storage with the propane off it takes a bit to bleed the air out of the line. I always use the stove a few minutes to get as much air out of the line as possible when pick it up from storage. Just FYI. Glad you got it working.

Just so that you know also. I have to work. I can not get to the forum will I am at work, this is why I took several hours before I was able to respond to any of the threads.
This was not set up to fix my coach this was set up to show how poor the customer service has gotten at Forest River.
It has done that. Know it is time for Forest River to step up and start taking responsibility for the problems that there customers are having.
If you would like to reply to this just type Yes or No this will let everyone know how you feel.
