Default Hot Water Heater

Hello,
I have a question which might be kind of a dumb one but here goes. I have a 2012 Funfinder 210uds and have never used the fridge or hot water heater on propane. Do i have to manually light a pilot light on the hot water heater when using propane? Also when running the fridge and the hot water heater on propane do they consume alot of propane? This is the first time out camping with no power hook up.

Thank you,

Nope no pilot lighting required. Your hot water heater is DSI which means direct spark ignition so when you flip the switch it will turn it on automatically. Same with the fridge, just turn it on. It has two modes, gas only or auto. If it's in auto it will run on 120V if available or switch to gas if there's no power. If it's in gas only mode it will run on propane regardless. It really uses very little gas to run.

Some fridges can also run on 12V battery power but that will drain your battery pretty quickly.

If you don't have a manual for your appliances I'd recommend going online and downloading them.

Thanks for the response that's kind of what I figured.

Another 210UDS owner here. Also have many/most manuals in their digital format. Be happy to share.
A few upgrades if/when you're interested.

I always get a chuckle when folks talk about a "hot water heater."

Actually who needs one? I have a COLD water heater to make the water hot.

Hot water does not need to be heated.

Not to offend, just a "pet peeve" of mine.
