CampLite Travel Trailers / Water heater issue
September 26, 2020, 09:42:47 PM
Hi guys, any ideas on this. I have a 2017 21bhs. I always purge the propane when turning on the gas, by lightning the stove so im sure its not air in the lives. Here's the issue  - when I light the water heater, it lights instantly and roars with a blue flame, just as it should.  After about 8 - 10 mins, the flame gets weaker and weaker until it eventually goes out . If I try to relight it, I hear the solenoids and igniter but no flame. If I wait an hour or more, all is well again and mostly will be of for the rest of the trip. On one occasion,  it did this whole thing twice before operating normally.  I have cleaned the flame tube and orifice.  Its almost like the propane line has moisture in it?? When the fault is starting  the flame gets weak and travels back down the tube. You can hear that the "roar" has gone. A minute later, it will extinguish fully, until I wait for an hour. When the fault occurs,  the red light comes on next to the on / off switch,  as it should. Once it has had its "hissy fit" the light stays out and the burner cycles on and off as needed to keep the water hot.

Hmmm, could be. Seems cheap or certainly reasonable.  Not mine btw.
I had the exact same issue with our 2017. I checked connections at the tv and amplifier which were ok. I took mine to the dealer under warranty and they found that the antenna was disconnected at the roof. Once fixed, that system actually works very well.
The side bolts were a Livin lite modification to prevent the frame/hitch bending.  My 2017 came without the bolts but Livin lite sent me the parts and measurements to install the extra bolts.
"Look closely though because 2016 was the model year they went to rubber roofs and started removing things like slide storage and the larger squared off baggage doors. By 2017 they all had the plastic floor and the move to fiberglass walls."

Incorrect information - our 2017 has the aluminum floor and sides.

My 2017 21bhs has a 150lb sticker on it
I believe they are still made by Challenger but now have azdel instead of wood. That is per the LL factory.

Congratulations! , we have a 21bhs and love it.

Any chance you could post a pic and parts info for the privacy curtain and hitch install?

Did you reinforce the bumbler for the hitch?

That's not a bad price but nobody is paying msrp.
We had the same issue. I found that I didn't have the table fully snapped on to the post. There is still some movement but it is acceptable in our case.
^That Is precisely what our dealer demonstrated to us!
I'd look for loose connections first. I have the same antenna and it is awesome but only after the dealer found a loose connection.  When I first bought it, it was terrible too.

I'd stick with blocks or a leveller such as this

The jacks are for stabilizing,  not really for leveling.  You can actually bend the jacks with too much weight.
