Atwood water heater

Any advice? We have a 2016 Charleston with an Atwood water heater. We've had problems with it off and on and we know he previous owners also had issues. We had a part replaced under a recall and water has been working pretty well. All of a sudden it stopped working again. The ignite failure light isn't blinking and I have no idea why it's not working now.

Is this by chance a tankless/on demand type Atwood... as I am not totally familiar with their inside controls as opposed to a tank type?

I do know that the on-demand type usually has to have a certain water flow rate in order for the burner to come on, and we have had several members encounter that problem.

Just imagine, for a moment, if there were no hypothetical situations.

It is the tankless type. And we have been at the same campground for several weeks with no issue

Did you reset it? There is a small black button upper left hand corner.

There is also a small black tube that vent to thru the outside cover. Make certain that tube is clear. Often dust or bugs will clog that and prevent ignition.

Last time I had an issue, the tube was block which caused the reset to trip. Took me a couple hours to find the reset button and 2 seconds to push it.
