I also had that problem with my hot water heater and found that the thermal coupler was not far enough into the flame and was therefore not getting hot enough. I adjusted (bent) it a little more into the fire and it worked fine.

The winds of change are blowing at hurricane force and I don't like it but good shall come even though I see not how.  I'll do everything in my power to see that it does.

Interesting.  This one is the same place as the original so I don't know if that's an issue or not.  It's also slightly different at the other end so I'm wondering if that might be the issue?

I forgot. that was my first issue as well. I had to bend my thermal couple into the flame.

If you want to make sure it works put a multimeter on the 2 wires and grab the end with your hand. You should immediately see a voltage increase.
I knew what I thought I meant.

If it stays lit with a butane lighter on the thermocoupler but goes out when you remove it you know it is not getting hot enough off the flame it is producing.

You might also need to crank down the propane regulator screw a turn or two.
Not all regulators are adjustable.

And a Weld shop
And now a saw mill

Late last fall we sold the Angler 9D (for about double what we had in to it too!)  8)

Now we're waiting on our new Arctic Fox 990.  Yup, we went whole hog on this one.  Many reasons but chiefly among them was the wife.  Sure I wanted heat, ac, a generator (as much or more for the mill than the camper as I like to use air to blow it off etc during band changes), entertainment (at a minimum a stereo but I liked the idea of a TV as I found I was often left alone on the jobsite after the day was done with just my thoughts and a kindle.  Nothing wrong with that but after a long day milling I thought it might be nice to watch a little TV before collapsing for the night).

Also wanted a bigger bathroom that I might actually be able to use with the door closed and even shower in.  And we wanted an awning over the door at the least.

With the 990 we got all that and a lot more but the wife is very excited that she will be 'comfy' on the jobsite and can come with me on weekends when we go milling.

I call that a win win :D  And the 990 is a true 4 season camper with 56 gallons of fresh water so I can use it well into the fall and early winter and carry water for the mill :D

Y'all going to enjoy that camper. It's a DanG shame I haven't used ours in almost three years. :(

I looked a long time before finally deciding to go new and with AF but one thing was really clear:  like Subaru's, a used AF is darn near as expensive as a new one!  They appear to retain their value very well for a camper.

Also, they had the most headroom in the cab over bed than any other.  Sure, heavy and tall but very nice and the wife is exited about going milling with me now :D
