Likely bugs...take it (the burner assembly) apart and clean it

Wow, Hopefully that is just dirt but that looks like a carbon buildup from using propane to heat (if possible), that or something is burning. That raises a good question, how do the Atwood heaters vent when heating with propane? I've only used the electric heater thus far.

Is it easy to service or do I need to take it in?

unsure of your ability....a few bolts and it should come right out.

I personally haven't done it but wouldn't hesitate if I had to but that's the way I am.

If you are uncomfortable about taking stuff apart I would take it in

just google it
