Fill with water, open the pressure relief valve to be sure it is full, the re-light.
I definitely have the tank filled. I didn't want to even touch the WH until I knew the whole plumbing system was A-ok and the WH full. As far as pressure relief valve, I didn't know you ever had to mess with that. Is that the one upper-right, above the burner unit? Not the drain valve at the bottom left, BillTex?
So...you bought a vintage trailer, did you, honey? Good deal, was it? Oh, just a couple of repairs, huh?
Drat, now our little Argy is starting to grow on me. I guess you were...were...were...right, honey.
