|HEATER & WATER HEATER||MIKE||8-29-02|
|SOMETIMES, AFTER TRAVELING ON A DIRT ROAD MY 5th WHEEL HEATER, OR WATER HEATER WILL NOT FIRE. THEN WE GET BACK HOME, I RE-CHECK AND THEY WORK FINE.|
WHEN THE HEATER IS NOT WORKING, I TURN UP THE THERMOSTAT TILL IT "CLICKS", THE FAN COMES ON, THEN A FEW SECONDS LATER THE SPARK IGNITER SHOULD START SPARKING TO IGNITE THE GAS - IT DOES NOT. THE WATER HEATER SOME TIMES DOES THE SAME THING. IT IS DEFFINATELY THE BUMPY ROAD THAT IS DOING SOMETHING.

|Check your electrical connections on your furnace and water heater.|
They are most likely not making good contact and may need adjusted or cleaned.
The bumpy road breaks what contact they are making, causing them not to function as they should.

|When the heater and water heater fail to work, does the stove/oven work?|
|Re: HEATER & WATER HEATER||MIKE||9-12-02|
|YES, EVERYTHING ELSE WORKS GREAT. WHEN THE HEATER DOES NOT WORK, I TRY TAPPING DIFFERENT AREAS WITH A HAMMER TO TRY TO "BUMP" SOMETHING BACK TO WORKING ORDER. THE HEATER DOES IT MORE THAN THE WATER HEATER.|
