Atwood Heater not Working

I have a 2017 264 BHW with an Atwood furnace. I have had it stored the past two months, but had some nice warmer weather today, so decided to go visit it at the storage and check on things. In doing so i hooked every thing back up to make sure systems worked etc. The furnace is having an issue. When i turn the thermostat on, the blower comes on and then a short time after the furnace tried to ignite. It sounds like it ignites at first but doesn't stay on. I can hear it try multiple more times, meanwhile the blower just continues to go. The stove is working fine and the refrig is as well on propane, so the propane is flowing.

I have tried finding other post here and there are some similar sounding issues, but not exactly the same. I did read where there is a reset switch somewhere on the unit, thought that might could be something to try. Of course the furnace is under the couch with no outside access. Also read about possible control boards going bad.

I did check through fuses, nothing seemed to be wrong there.

Looking for any other suggestions from anyone that might have seen something similar before i make the trip taking it in to have it looked at.

Check for bugs, spiders, and webs at the intake and exhaust port.

Having had a similar problem and consulting with a service manual the first things you want to check, after looking for a vent blockage, is the voltage and gas pressure. There was nothing blocking the vent which I checked first. I had good voltage but I discovered that the gas regulator was not providing enough pressure. I switched the regulator and was back in business. If you can hear the ignition sparking the control board is probably okay.

fixed issue

shorty after posting my question i thought about the cover i have on the camper. It probably was covering the exhaust port therefore keeping the ignition from happening. Well it took a week to get back and double check my theory, and that was in fact the problem. I apparently had the cover still blocking the port. All is good

Thanks for the suggestions and help.
