Question about RTO Atwood Water Heater - 6 Gal LP
#G6A-7E heater lights just fine and stays lit the problem is at higher altitudes the flame enters the flame tube but exits the end as if to much pressure extends 3 or 4 inches past the end at sea level the flames does not enter the flame tube but backs out past the igniter as if no pressure at all. tube is clean not blocked.
Check your exhaust, see if its clogged or blocked, clean the flame sensors, I that does not work, then your gas valve is starting to go bad, there is a cap on it if you take the cap off you can turn the gas flow down a little bit,

You are correct, there should be no flame after it shuts off. Pull the + wire off at contacts as well and see if flame remains, if it does, the gas valve is faulty (leaking by) and should be replaced.
