If your motorhome has been in storage for a season or more, this is likely what you’ll find when you remove the cover — dirt, dust and spider webs. In fact, there was still a spider present when we took this photo.
With the screw removed, the igniter bracket assembly can be lifted out of the way.
The water-heater igniter is very similar to an engine’s spark plug — when it’s dirty, it doesn’t work very well. But also like a spark plug, its function can easily be restored by gently sanding off oxidation that can form on the metal wires over time. For the purpose of comparison, we cleaned just the bottom ground wire; compare it to the greenish-brown electrode.
