Hi, this is Michael, Gas only direct spark..........Ok, first of all there needs to be power to the switch inside,,,,,,,if there is go to the water heater, leave the switch on, unplug the wire on the thermostat.................ck for power there if power is there, follow the lead to the pc board, if the power goes into the board, and the gas valve doesnt click or the igniter strike,,,,,,,,the board is bad....................But you need to follow the power first before making that determination
Customer
The power switch in side the RV light up. What voltage should I see at the thermostat.........where is the circuit board located? What should I expect to pay to have the whole unit replaced including labor? Where are you located ? Oregon ?
Its all 12 volt no worries........Depending on the make its either in the front or in the back Atwood is in the front behind the door, Suburban is tapped to the back or the top or the styrofoam insulation.........................I'm in California Labor going to run 1.5 -2.0 hrs at the shops labor rate,,,,,,,,,I do know someone in Oregon what city are you in? I have to ck on the price of the heater, depends on 10gal, 6 gal, what mfgr

The Suburban unit is 305$...............michael

My tank is a 10 gal tank. I am about 90 miles S. of Oregon City. Tank + labor $ = ??

worst case $$ =___________

Labor 200 +water heater305= 505$ plus tax, and if your door doesnt work on the new water heater you need a new one at 55$ So all things considered $550 +- I'm talking to the tech right now in Oregon what city are you in?
Customer
