 Evening All:

I have a Retro 177SE (bought it May 2017). I just brought it out of storage to prep for a trip.

The furnace works the Stove top works but I can’t get the Hot Water unit to kick on. 

I filled the fresh water tank, and then I connected to city water. Opened the water at the Tank so I know the Tank is full.

Does anyone have an insight or trick when you follow the instructions and nothing happens ?

Yes disconnect and reconnect the spade connectors on the solenoids for the gas valve. 

 Believe it or not, just had this problem this morning. Try that and see if the gas kicks on and the ignition starts ticking on it. Let me know

It worked, I dropped power from the trailer. Disconnected the spade connectors on the solenoid for the gas valve.

Then reconnected them.

Turned power back on crossed my fingers and it worked.

Thank you very much.

I owe you…..

Regards,

Dennis

Glad I could help, happy camping ! Some dialectric grease on those connectors will prevent a repeat issue ! You can pick up a tube at any auto parts store!
