I have a BOSH tankless water heater at a camp. The water pressure is only 17 PSI as it is gravity fed from a 1200 water tank. How can I improve water pressure effectively ? Thanks Steeve

Pressure from a gravity system can only come from the height of the water tank above the height of the inlet to the heater. This difference is called "head". To get more pressure you need a greater head. You will need to raise the tank a minimum of 3'. Note: you could test the pressure using a hose, head is based on vertical height of water, and has nothing to do with volume of water.

Truma water heater water wont come out of the taps when on gas, 12 volt or mains 240 volt

Bleed your propane system by running the stove for a sec. if that doesn't work go out to the heater and listen for the ignitor clicks see if it's trying to lite. My fifth wheel does this first time every season.

What Atwood water heater models will replace model GCH6A-9E?

Any 6 gal will fit in same cut-out (hole) . 12-5/8" H x 16-1/4" W x 17-5/8 deep. In order to move up to a 10 gal, you need to be able to cut hole a little bigger. 15-3/4" H x 16-1/4" W x 20-5/8" deep. Usually your depth will allow , and width is same, just a matter of whether you have room to make height bigger.

My pressure relief valve on my boiler is allowing water to pass through do i adjust it to stop the water flow? only have about 15 pounds of pressure in system

Even a small amount of crud on the rubber washer/sealer can cause the valve to seep. Some valves can be taken apart and cleaned but it will be better to replace the valve. They can be found on line for around $12 or more. You will have to shut off the water in take valve and drain most of the system unless you have a main line shut off valve so the system wont drain back into the boiler. These valves are usually set at 30PSI.

I purchased an aqua star 1600h-lp to be installed in a cottage. Question is, the cottage is heated with a large wood stove/fireplace. The water heater is located in a bathroom at the other end of the...

I would say that the wood fire/stove must have a heck of a draw to affect the bathroom heater. Maybe a separate air supply from outside via a pipe,to the stove meshed off against vermin would decrease the problem. Plus it could stop cold air being sucked across the room from an outside door.
Downdraft through the heater could happen with either vertical or horizontal vent. More important is the direction of the prevailing wind [horizontal] ingress of water/snow etc [vertical]
We often use the separate air supply in the UK and if the pipe bore is large enough 4" plus it seems to work ok.

Central heating circulating pump

The vent pipe should be in front of the pump so that the pump pushes towards the vent pipe NOT sucks from it. I hope this vent pipe is part of the heating system and not of the hot water
Pumps like to push not pull and therefore it is better if the pump is located further down - say at the bottom of the cylinder or lower.
With an indirect cylinder, the hot water & heating are separate circuits and are not and must not be interconnected. You will need a separate pump for the hot water which should be taken from the hot pipe coming out of the cylinder. You may get vacuation in the cylinder - then you will need an Essex or similar valve to replace the hot water outlet connection
By the way - The pressure at any hot tap is directly related to the height difference between the tap and the header tank in the loft [thus a shower downstairs feels stronger than one upstairs]

Just fitted solid fuel stove with back boiler, water in system but not circulating through hot wwater cylinder.

is the circulating pump going in the right direction? if not reverse the pump if it is make sure your valve is not clogged going thru the pump, if it isn't a ball valve put one in, a gate valve could break off inside and it will still feel like it is working but it wouldn't be,
