Pop ... goes the water heater ...
My full gas water heater seems to have ignition problems, and need to know if anyone else is experiencing this .. cause this is my first trailer with this option.
The gas is turned on, to the one one bottle i wish to drain. I open the propane tank, and then go inside and flick the switch for the ignition for the water heater. - all this ofcourse after I have purged the water lines of all air.
Anywhoooo .. the ignitor comes on for at least 2 full rounds, before i hear an "explosion of sort" just at the door of the WH. I am assuming this is not normal .. and has happened now twice in a row when I start the system up cold ... and now its happening when it has been running, and comes on during the night to warm the water. The ignition of the WH wakes up the dog. I shut it down on my last trip .. because i think there is something "amiss".
The unit will be going in for its first warrenty service in the next few weeks, and I know this will be covered ... but if anyone has an explaination, it would be most appreciated.
