    Hello all, I am new to this site. I recently bought a 22 ft. trailer and everything worked when I bought it. Now the water heater won't stay lit. It will lite and then go out over and over. I got it to stay lit the other day for a couple of hours and now won't stay lit again. Any help would be great.

    I am with jimmy on this one. You have an orifice installed in-line and upstream of your control box. If this orifice starts to plug up you will have lighting problems. Good luck and let us know what you find.

    well I forgot, J and T are correct. the pilot lite on the refrigerator would not stay lit. I removed the cover and took an old tooth brush and cleaned it up. So for it it is doing fine when we use propane o n the refrigerator

    Flame may not be adjusted close enough to the capilary tube
