I have the same symptoms with the water heater in our 2012 25FB--burning wire smell followed by failure of the water heater. Ours died on both the propane as well as 110v sides but replacing the 2amp fuse on the exterior of the heater returned propane service. My problem is simple- where the heck is the heating element located on the heater? It must be covered by the insulation. I DO NOT want to removed the tank just to change the element! On a daily basis I'm reminded yet again of the poor design that went into our trailer and its lack of easy servicing.
