You can turn on a hot water tap to check to see how hot the water is, or go outside and flip up the hi-pressure lever on the face of the water heater to get some water directly out of the water heater to see the temp it is there. Make sure you are not directly in the line of fire to get possible hot water on you.
I'd hate to go to all this troubleshooting and you already have hot water. LOL
OK......I just did a check of my own. I turned the propane hot water switch inside the RV on, pushed in and held the reset switch, had my wife check if the reset light came on in the RV. It comes on when I push and hold in the reset switch so I'm assuming the switch is bad. It did not attempt to fire.
WE aren't currently in the RV. Just getting it ready to leave on Jan 4th. I have time to make repairs before we leave. I hope
I was in the process of removing the switch and noticed on contact wire was coroded. I sprayed with contact cleaner and cleaned the contact and guess what. That was the problem. The heater is now heating hot water.
Thanks for all your help. What you told me about the reset switch led me to the real problem. Thanks a million
