if it is a problem with corroded terminals clean them and put a coating of dielectric grease (available at most auto parts stores) on the terminals

also check your gas pressure. Both my WH, and my oven would light, but neither would stay lit. with a home-built manometer, I measured gas pressure at the inlet to the range, and downstream of the range regulator. my gas pressure was 1/2" H2O too low. I adjusted the main regulator and have not had an issue since.

Be wary of this DIY as you could over-pressurize your system. If you are uncomfortable, then have it done. Youtube has a couple of decent videos on this repair.

I didn't know propane regulators were adjustable.

And I forgot to mention kinked hoses under the RV as another possible problem.

The second stage of you two stage regulator at the tanks is adjustable. underneath the dust cover is a socket head screw that adjusts the pressure on the diaphragm. tighten it to increase TT propane pressure, loosen it to lower pressure.

DON'T MAKE ADJUSTMENTS UNLESS YOU HAVE A PRESSURE METER HOOKED UP (MANOMETER).

Use a Manometer rather than a gauge I have seen too many gauges give false readings.

Considering that 11"WC is just under 1/2 of 1 PSI.....

IF I ever decide that my propane regulator is in need of adjustment, I'll just replace the thing. It's a whole lot cheaper than finding, buying and figuring out how to use the correct and accurate gauge.

Besides, my flammable gasses paranoia leaves me with: If it has worn so badly (or is so old) that it needs adjustment, it should be replaced anyway.

Better safe than confused....

Just to close off this thread - I finally got this fixed. The gas valve was bad. I replaced it and it's working great!
