Tom I know that I've mentioned this before. I have the same issue. I did put this on my list of problems for them to look at when we are at the rally. Also get water in the lower bay compartment. Is there / should there be a seal behind the water heater cabinet where it slides into the opening?

Good question. Don't really know if there should be a seal behind the water heater. I too have it on my Goshen list.

The heater box should be sealed all around the front edges and would have been sealed from the compartment if it wasn't for the gas line that pokes through the rear panel at the bottom. On the Gen III, there is a gas line connector on the rear panel.

All I'm saying is that I'm done with Girard. I want to replace it with something that works. Something that I don't have to wrap myself in tin foil, and change my frequency while rubbing the back of my head.

I appreciate all the info given here and I've taken all the steps suggested by others. A water heater shouldn't be that difficult to get working. Hell, even when it does heat, I have to set the temp on a remote dial in a cabinet. Then in the middle of a shower, you get a blast of cold water. It just isn't right.

Sorry, I'll get off the soap box now......
I have seen the long string of posts about the Girard Gen 2. I had one in our Legacy and changed it out myself for a Girard Gen 3. Wow, what a nice unit and the changeout was not bad. We just returned from several months on the road in a wide variety of temperature situations, that heater was great. Just my two cents worth.
