Thanks for the follow-up! Really good work finding that.

OK, now my other question-- what's with this? "h) DC power is always 12.5vdc"

If you are on shore power, 13.6v converter, 12.5 is a big drop to the WH IMO. If on battery, 12.5 is about 75% SOC and is not constant--so not "always".

Ummmmm... well food for thought isn't it ! I agree but my little Toy Hauler has always had about 12.5 vdc battery reading on my solar power regulator and when on shore power ? Same reading on my digital meter when checking wiring, etc.. Might be because of my old batteries perhaps ? Hasn't been an issue and when on solar panels I have power all evening (never use propane heater tho) and recharge during the day. Also have a generator if needed and always starts so .... I'm not sure ?

YEP......gas valve solenoids
Takes BOTH to hold gas valve open against the spring pressure

Should have had to test ohms earlier but when you stated you had 12VDC ON both I ignored the ohms testing

Glad you found the issue.!!


Is it time for your medication or mine?

Yeah I did the same thing, got side tracked by the 12 vdc present constant. I had taken a wire and applied 12 vdc to each coil and listened to the hard click and came to the concussing it was working OK and passed on that ... I had thought about checking resistance early on and didn't do it .... Should have ... lol

Tanks for your help anyway, good advise...
