I have a 2005 Allegro Bay.

 

On last trip water would not heat beyond warm.

 

Later that evening water was very hot and I thought problem was over. Next morning water running cold again. Several hours later could get hot water followed by cold only later in evening.

 

All of this took place heating or trying to heat with electric, when I switched to propane all ran well. Any ideas of what I should look for? Any help greatly appreciated.

I do not profess to know anything about most things but having said that is there a bad relay?

 

Just throwing it out for discussion.

Ralph, Here is a  link to the service manual for your Water heater.

 

http://bryantrv.com/.../docs/subsw.pdf

 

Check page 18. you should find information on the units Thermostat and limit switch. This has a reset button and the Hi temperature limit switch.

This is where I would start. Hope this helps and work safe.

 

Rich.
