Need to replace G6A-6E Atwood waterheater, what replacement model can I use?


Why not the same model/size? Atwood 6 gal, works on propane with electronic ignition. Or, you can get the 6 gallon with electronic ignition, and electric element as well provided you are willing to run hydro to water heater as well, if not already there. Check any RV parts site for prices and availability. Some places are out of stock currently. I assume your current tank is leaking?

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.

I have a Jayco pop up with an Atwood water heater, serial # 37C14U-5. My problem is two-fold. The water heater pilot doesn't stay lit after initial run, and propane is leaking out of the vent on the...


Leaking propane is red flag #1 and fire hazard.
Immediately update your insurance and then turn off gas.
If pilot is not staying lit, then gas leak can be cause of pilot problem since pressure on the line is reduced.
Other causes include bad gas control valve, air in the gas line, bad thermocouple, burner parts need cleaning, or all the above.
After fixing leak, replace thermocouple, clean combustion chamber and burner parts, and bleed gas line to remove air.

Have an atwood 10 gal water heater that leaks but I can't find the leak. The lines are dry. Have a lot of water in interior under the bathroom tile.


Also open cover and check if element is leaking. Elements frequently leak at rubber seal.
Next suspect is rusted-out tank that is leaking through a thin-place in the tank.

Otherwise there are not many other places to check if pipes are dry, especially with the Atwood 10 gallon.
I suggest replacement.
