Control panel

The control panel by the front door has a tiny red light on. The letters DSI over FLT. The water heater would not light on propane and neither will the gas grill. Yes, the tanks are turned on. So, does it have something to do with that? Another camp out and once again something doesn't work. All your expertise is very welcome. Appreciate your help.

Do you have 2 tanks? Is the changeover valve pointing to a full tank? Did you bleed the air out of the lines?

On mine with it flipped to DSI the water heater lights on propane. You should be able to hear the striker clicking. Sometimes it takes a bit to get the gas to it. Takes a minute for the grill too initially. If it's like mine it is the last gas appliance in line. If your inside stove lights then you know you getting gas for certain.

All good points Todd. Sue, does the stove top burners light. I've found that's usually the easiest place to purge from. Are you 100% certain the propane tanks contain propane?
The water heater and fridge are more difficult appliances to light when the lines have not been purged of air. The stovetop is the easiest.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the replies. Both tanks are full. Stove works just fine. Filled tanks before we left today. Dark now, so I'll work on things in the morning.

It can take a long long time to purge the line to the WH. If the stove lights, that eliminates most of the potential problems. (empty tank, wrong tank selected, bad regulator, etc)

I would keep resetting it and letting it try to light again for 5-6 cycles. I would bet it eventually lights.

Might be a dumb question but do you have water in your hot water tank? Many have a safety feature that will not light if no water is in the hot water tank.

Kabachy, I did not know that. That is a nice feature especially for a water heater with the electric heating element. Many elements have been burnt out due to being turned on with no water in the tank.

I guess I want to know what the light is for. It is very small and red. And yes I have water in the WH.

The light indicates that there is an ignition problem, should light initially then go out.
