It is only infrequently that I lie awake in bed puzzling over an RV appliance, but there I was last night running through this in my head.

Here is the question I can not get around. Why is the flame not extending up into the heat exchanger? That tube runs up through the water heater tank and vents out and the flame normally goes right up the tube. That flame looks like it is hitting a wall. I just don’t get it, can’t even figure out how it is possible!
