Atwood LP Gas Water...

Atwood LP Gas Water Heater 10 Gallon GC10A-4E 94022

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Atwood LP Gas Water Heater 10 Gallon GC10A-4E 94022 Yr. 2006 the burner will not turn off and the electric side dose not work at all when we are at full hook up. I've changed both the mother board and high low temp board solenoids nothing changed. I'm thinking maybe new tank.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '10 RV?

2006 34' Tropical Diesel Pusher

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

The water gets hot but will not trip the high heat sensor which I have changed
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 4 years ago

You should have a thermostat and ECO mounted to the tank they are small round discs, have you replaced them?

Sorry can not do a call until I have more info on this. ROBERT

the Main mother board
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 4 years ago

I need to think about this one, if you replaced the board, T-stat and ECO it should have taken care of the problem.

Let me pull a wiring diagram on that model and see if anything stands out.

I don't know if the unit is electric/gas but it has a ele. hw. switch next to the gas switch and it dose not work either
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 4 years ago

Yes it has an AC heating element on the back side of the water heater, AC power is applied to it and it heats the water. You should have a breaker in your main breaker panel for it.

IT will take a good 40 mins for the water to heat up using the AC element

I am going to step out of the question, maybe another expert will have some input for you on what is going on with this. I do not know when another expert will respond they come and go daily, my answer is for you to have the best possible answer...... ROBERT

Hi, I am Randall. I have an RV repair shop and work on these all the time. The fastest way to get to the root of this problem is with a 12 VDC test light like you can find at most hardware stores. Easy to use and I can direct you. I would ask you to be sure that you got the new thermostat and ECO in correctly and did not mix them up or get the wiring mixed up. They are not the same temp setting for each one. The ECO should be on the left and the thermostat on the right. Check that and let me know when you are ready to test with your light.
