Bad Water Heater Switch?
I usually run the water heater off electricty, but I'll throw a breaker with the AC, refrig, tv and micro running at the same time. So if I need all going at the same time I change the refrig and water heater to gas. I've only done this 3 or 4 times since I've owned the trailer.
This last time the heater wouldn't run off the gas, but everything else did. The red switch wouldn't light up, nothing. After several tries I removed the switch and checked the connections and to see if it's getting juice. All looked good. I replaced the switch, try it again and still nothing.
The next morning I try it again the red light comes on and it fires up (red light goes off after the heater fires up, as it should). I give it time to heat the water, run the water until it cycles through and fires up again. Everything is good.
Anyone have any clue why it's doing this? Maybe the switch is bad?
