I have a 1993 or 1994 aljo 3030 trailer.
I can not read the numbers, because it has washed away from pressure release flow. it gets too hot and even on just pilot light here in southern California summer temperatures.
can you instruct h ow to make it less hot on the pilot light?

If your pilot light does not seem to stay lit, you may want to first try getting a new thermocouple sensor. I the same problem with my hot water tank heater and the sensor fixed the problem.

Hi there I have a unitrol hot water heater in my 1977 dodge lazydaze. I am wondering if any body knows how to clean them? mine lights the pilot light fine then when you go to set the flame I get a noise sounds like to much gas. I see a yellow flame and it sounds like a torch. no adjustment available. I hear the click then sounds like a torch won't adjust. I turned dial both ways. Like I said won't adjust. Either pilot light or the torch.
Any info would be appreciated.
Thanx Lee

Where can I get a pilot lite for an american appliance mfg model VRV6-Y propane water heater for an older model motor home 1988 class C the old one has worn through and leaks and won't stay lit when the knob is released
Re: Unitrol RV porpane water heater Jack the Grinder 3-2-06  
The leak of gas is noticable by the order. I recommend removing the top red adjustor, which has the pilot and on dial. unscrew the three screws and remove the cone like unit.

inspect and clean it. Make sure there exist no deep scratches or ridge marks.

If everything is ok. use grear grease to coat the unit and replace it.

After that it should not leak. But if it continues to leak, remove the front plat. It has four flat screws and replace the gasket. The gasket is most definitely old and torn. That should stop the remaining leak.

If you continue to experience some leak, I recommend applying compound or gas tape (yellow) to the inlet screw and tighen all screws. Good luck.

Re: Unitrol RV porpane water heater Willie Chittum 7-1-09  
I have a 1975 Shasta camper.The water heater in is a Unitrol 6-602.I can't get the pilot to light.If I hold down the pilot button,it tries to light,but when I release the button it goes out.Also the light seems to be on the outside rather than inside.Seems like it is not getting the gas.The control buttons are very worn,so I cannot tell much about what to do.Could you help me out please?
Re: Unitrol RV porpane water heater Larry 6-2-05  
I have a 1978 Allegro. I had the same problem. There is a ring( looks like a lock nut) on top of your control. This needs to be turned (I used channel locks)to the point the pilot(red plastic?) will push all the way down. Once the pilot lights and remains burning, you have to turn the ring on around to let the gas into the valve. Hope that helps you. I had a terrible time figuring it out. LOL

Re: Unitrol RV porpane water heater Larry 6-2-05  
George, I'm not sure if my reply to you worked.See above dated 6-2-05
Re: Unitrol RV porpane water heater bill 10-5-08  
If it still has the tag on the side, it says it has a safety control flow switch that is a one time use switch- if it's been set of, the only repair is to replace the controller. It could have failed on someone else, and they turned on the gas with the cover off of the thing to see if it had fuel flow. This will ruin the control by setting off the safety switch. Learned that the hard way. Bill
