Sorry, I was having the same problem with the refrigerator. Pilot light fires up right away, but in a few minutes starts to sputter and flame gets sucked back into the burner tube, just like the water heater.

Low gas pressure, something is wrong with your propane regulator or your tanks need filled.

Refrigerator has the same problem as the water heater. Flame backs up into burner tube. I have video of both, but don't think I can post video.

The range burners appear normal and don't seem to fluctuate when water heater or refrigerator burners start. Also had a problem with the furnace at delivery, bad internal vibration. Turned out to be a problem with the metal case. The propane supply associated with the furnace appeared to work fine.

In my experience RV manufacturers install regulators without bothering to set them. A manometer is a good tool to own.

They come preset. I have NEVER had to adjust a replacement LP regulator in 41 years as an RV Tech. My rule of thumb is, IF you have to adjust more than 1 inch of WC, then replace the regulator. It is not up to the job. Doug
