Seems to me I once heard someone say you could get a kit for like $65 to change a normal propane
powered water heater from external ignition to an internally switched ignition. After cruising the web for a while, maybe I heard wrong?
Has anybody done this? The last trailer we had (an '83 Sunline T-1550), came to us with a bad water heater. I swapped it out for new one with an interior switch for ignition, and boy, was that great. On the other hand, I am very glad that trailer is gone and we now have an egg!
