Replacing pilot assembly what type dope?
The tube from the thermostat control to the pilot light has been pinched. It has been hit too many times when trying to remove the anode rod on the water heater during winterizing. I have finally bought a high quality socket, extension, and wrench, to do the job without the associated slipping, so the tubes should be safe from now on.
The pilot light and thermocouple assembly comes together with the mounting bracket for the Suburban water heater. Since it is for an RV, it is all kind of cramped in this area.
I was able to replace and test the assembly last night. It works great and there are no leaks.
Thanks for your help.
