New owner of a 2005 BT Cruiser and just went through dewinterization. The manual is not helpful in restarting/igniting the hot water heater. Gas is working to the range and refrig. Any help is much appreciated. Reportedly the water heater was serviced in 3/18 and worked. Thanks!

Hi there. I also have an 05 cruiser. My winter prep consists of draining tanks and hot water tank, removing the anode and flushing the tank out. I then, with my compressor, blow all remaining water out of the lines. On startup in the spring, I fill the water tank, turn the pump on and pressurize the system, filling hot water tank.on your control panel, left side is the switch to turn the heater on. If it doesn’t light, a red light showing pilot not lit. Turn switch on until you can hear the heater operating. Hope this helps.

FIRST MAKE SURE HEATER NOT IN BYPASS AND IS FILLED W/ water? Blow water out relief valve? Can you hear igniter sparking, trying to light?
