I am not at the unit at the momentPretty standard Winnibego C Class 30'2015. Ford 450 cab
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 7 months ago

No tank is an instant hot version, but there are 3 makes of these. Most were Atwood, but that is no guarantee. How long before you are at the unit again. I think the limit switch just needs to be reset. That is the most common problem.

I was hoping that wasn't the case. These are so hard to keep running. The water pressure and the LP pressure are critical. I would be sure you have a pressure regulator on the inlet water line and have the LP pressure checked at the tank regulator and have it adjusted (if you have an adjustable model) to 12 WCI. This needs to be checked often. I suspect that this is a one or the other or combination of the two. If your regulator won't come into specs, then get a new MEC Marshall unit. Best out there. Then get back to me if it still won't heat and we can look into this further.

N​o, this was for you. Those are the two things that need to be addressed here. These Girard units are very hard to keep working unless you have these perfectly adjusted.

You were going to walk me through the reset ?
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 7 months ago

T​hose two things have to be checked first. Once those are done it may work correctly.

The reset was for an Atwood model.
