Solved: Hot Water Heater Will Not Light

Wanted to share a problem and solution I just encountered with a suburban water heater that would not come on in my 2016 FR3 30DS. The clue was that the indicator light at the control panel did not light when the water heater switch was depressed. Checked all of the regular things at the water heater (inside circuit breakers, resets, etc.) and still no power. Checked the switch at the control panel inside and it was good but there was no power to it. Turned out that a wire had come loose from the back of the water heater circuit breaker in the main fuse box in the bedroom. Problem solved!

Those bumps and dips in the roads are the culprits once again!
