I just refilled the 30 pound external tank this past week. When I hooked the tank back up to our extend-a stay hose, everything in the motor home showed normal operation{lighting}

with the exception of our water heater. The water heater had operated normally before I refilled the external tank this last time. I consulted the motor home manual for

remedies and did everything the manual said{shut shore water off,  drained the heater from both places externally and turned everything back on}. The water heater

light came on with a dim red light instead of no light while water was heating and immediately went off with the bright light activated. I have tried everything repeatedly

with no satisfaction to this point.  Any suggestions greatly appreciated as to how we can get our hot water back.

It doesn't seem to be getting any propane but furnace and stove are working fine.

It can take several tries to get air out and gas to the water heater if you have had the propane off for sometime or run completely out.

It might help some to know what brand water heater you have but in most cases, the red light in or next to the switch is connected to turn on as soon as you turn the water heater on, then the light should go out and stay out once the flame is ignited. Have you checked outside to see if you have propane burning when you thought that it was burning?  You may want to visit Bryant RV website and download a copy of the service manual for the water heater that you have.
