I need a little advice on our Water Heater in our 1968
Trade Wind,it is the original. While camping this Labor Day, was trying to light the Pilot and unable to do so until a fellow Airstreamer helped me out and made an adjustment to the Air/Gas mixture. The problem is now the large flame does not go back to pilot and if you manually adjust from on to Pilot the flame is about 2-2 1/2" long and yellow. The side panel above my water heater opening is also getting very hot. I am wondering if I should try cleaning the tube and orifice, installing a Hot Rod or if it is time to consider replacing with a new water heater? All advice and help will be greatly appreciated, would really like to hold off on replacing the water heater if I have any other options.
