Trouble shooting with LP gas is tough when you can't find something with your particular symptoms so had to come in and post here.
Well it has had some hiccups but always restarted fine until Tuesday. The light comes on in the trailer saying it needs reset. I have hit the button for the reset on the tank as well as turning it on and off in the trailer and I do believe I have strained and sprained my index finger doing this as many times as I have.
It fires up like it should nice flame going down the tube and a little more yellow than what "I" thibnk it should be but how the hell do I know. it fires and burns for 3-11 seconds and shuts off and refires itself 3 times before lockout.
I have no idea what the problem is and need some help/ideas if possible. Since I never has a problem with it I never really played with it but now I have a problem I have found some things that need addressed in the future or may need to have attention now.
I think I have a leak in the heater tube, since i do see some water laying there when the burner lights. The are some water tracks coming from there too. May need a tank replaced since the next paragraph explains more.
I have a 2" nipple and a cap where the anode should be, opened it and more rusty particles than I wanted to see poured out.
I wanted to remove the burner tube so I could check or replace the heating element but the gas line is too corroded and will break if I try and turn the nut any further. can't wire brush it any more than i have and added a bit of blaster and that was useless too. I should a new manifold out let tube and nuts around a week from now and I will not be able to go out in public unless i hose myself with febreeze.
