As you know I just bought this RV. Seems nothing works! Playing with hotwater heater today. Turn on propane, Fiip interior switch on with red light, run outside I hear and see the burn light and roar! Then 5 seconds later it shuts off......it auto relights in a few seconds and i'm happy again but 5 seconds later it shuts off again!! Getting frustrated here guys! Frig gets hot on coils but inside is not cold, Generator starts but shuts off 1min 45 sec later.....now water heater only stays on 5 seconds....Help!!!! LOL

Make sure you have water in the water heater tank. It may be shutting off to protect it self from overheating.

Thanks Eric I'll look into that. Ummmm how would I confirm that? I found the tank but no sight glass etc. Disconnect the pipe and see if water comes out of hot side?

Is it the standard RV water heater? Undo the drain plug on the outside and the water should gush out. Put "rv water heater drain" into Google and you'll see several pictures show up. It's also possible you have it in bypass mode, with no water in it.
