    I have a 1999 HR Vacationer with a 6 Gallon Attwood DSI hot water heater, operates with gas and has an electric element as well. The gas side thermstat went out but in trying to order a new one I get two choices one for the gas, one for the 110V. My model # is GC6AA-9E. Any help on the correct thermostat would be appreciated.

    I hope the thermostat fixes your problem. I just replaced my 2002 6 gallon Atwood DSI hot water heater. The new replacement was $559 plus $ 170 install plus tax. :(

    Now DL, if you would lay off them diesel fumes you could have done it yourself and saved the 170 bucks. Ordered it from GTS and even saved more :eek: Was yours leaking?

    Hey Chelse, my heater circuit board was shot and they wanted $250 for a new board that I would have installed. However, my last water heater lasted 7 years before it started leaking so with my unit at 6 1/2 years old I opted for a new one. The installation is really hard on mine (old age itis). Last time it took 2 clowns to install it.

    Man, I really wish I could still work on vehicles like I used to. Mind still wants to but if I got in some places I used to I would never get out now. Could lay across floorboard humps under dashes all day and no problem and now have trouble just getting out of the car seat :laugh:

    Well it's time for me to stop tinkering. Saturday I cleaned the contacts on my Dometic Refrigerator circuit board and forgot to shut off the shore power. Well I turned off the 12 V battery and unplugged 115 V AC to the the refrigerator, but temporarily forget that the converter was still supplying 12 V power. I wiped out my 12 V circuit board or something because now my refrigerator won't light the propane. I don't get a spark and I don't know if there is any propane flowing past the igniter. Well I guess that lets out boon docking until I can afford a new circuit board.

    My Dometic is a Model # 2807. Way back in 1998 the gas part of the 2 way refrigerator stopped working and they installed a factory wiring modification to the circuit board so I'm not sure if the board I looked up on the Internet will even work. It's a Dinosaur Board. That's appropriate as I'm an old Dinosaur. I just need to quit screwing around with the appliances as wifey told me, since I'm getting dangerous in my old age. :eek: :bleh:
