We run the water heater for 10 mins before we shower and shut it off when done....been out 5 weekends, 2 were long weekends.( 3 nights ), shower every night, and still have gas in the tank.

Happy camping.

Question Suburan Water Heater issues

We have the propane type currently and after ready what I have read not sure if I should still look at the electric options. Ours is not wanting to light. It will click about 6 times a just a poof, then will try about 3 or 4 more times before we hear a loud bang. This it will try again and will almost always light. Like I stated almost always. We get a lot of faults on our panel from the water heater. Not sure what the problem is and wanted to see if anyone else may have a similar problem. Apparently this has been going on since the original owner of rig said they had the same problem from day one. We have tried leaving the door partially open, all the way open, closed and even made a cover over the vent to allow only air to come in from the top and bottom. Nothing seems to work. Any ideas?
