First off- we live in our 5'er in So Cal; that means no winterizing, no shutting down to move.
I had my whole house water filter (Water Pur) housing break at the threads and shoot off like a bomb.
I took the thing out- hard to access anyway. Did a good job with that, if I do say so myself.
All that may even be beside the point- here lies the real problem...
Husband noticed that the indicator light on the water heater indoor gas switch was not coming on, and called it to my attention a month ago. I forgot all about it. For the little amount we use hot water (showers in the facilities, dishes for two) seemed like there was plenty. We only turn the WH on a half hour before we need hot water. Turn it off after a 30 minute timer goes off. I hadn't paid much attention to the light until this filter thing happened.
Now I see I either get no light, or it stays on a long time. I flipped it on and went outside to see if I would hear the gas and the click, click, click and the whoosh. I did. I waited for the 30 minutes. turned it off as per usual, and checked the water temp by flow from the kitchen sink. It was not hot. The water from the cold tap was, during the course of it's flow, hotter than the WH "hot" water! (Our bare hose is on the west, sunny side of the trailer, hence, solar heated water.)
I thought I was out of gas (isn't that what the constant on of the indicator light means?). Actually had 3.5 gallons left in my 7 gal tank. More in the secondary one. Turned on all 3 of my stove burners for a few minutes- they all light up quite nicely, although we rarely use them to cook. So I know the regulator valve is working.
In double checking the tank for full capacity, I opened the pressure valve, which decided not to reclose: replaced it.
Where do I begin? I have pressed all the reset buttons, pushed all the connections, flipped all the switches... I can use the electricity (as far as I know) but with the AC running full-blast, it flipped a breaker! (Yes, I know I have some electrical issues..
.) Its an SW6DE.
So what should I do and how do I do it? I have already called in the warrantee people twice for unrelated incidents- they're going to think I am try to get a new home piece by piece!
I know this was long, but if you read it, I so thank you for your patience and help!
