Hi my name is Robert.....
IS the electrode sparking? After the fan comes up to speed you should hear a click from the gas solenoid valve and the electrode will start to spark....
Let me know if you still need help on this, it matters if it is sparking or not on which way to diagnose... I suspect if you have that fault it is NOT sparking, let me know, I am around daily and respond when I can... Robert
So as the fan comes up to speed it will blow on a sail switch which sits inside the blower wheel, once the sail switch closes it passes the signal through the high limit to the board. Once the board gets the signal it will allow the electrode to spark and the gas valve to open up.
IF you are getting voltage on that signal wire then it sounds like a board issue, most RV shops have a special board tester and can tell if it is at fault. IF you have NO voltage at the circuit board then the sail switch or the limit switch is suspect. Check your battery voltage as well, IF the voltage was low say 11 DC or under the fan would come on but would not spin fast enough to close the sail switch, so make sure you have over 12 VDC.
I can get you a wiring diagram if you like so you can see where to check voltage but you will need a volt meter. IF you do not have a meter and your battery voltage is above 12 volts about all you can do is have the board tested or have a RV mobile or shop take a look... Hope this makes sense. IF you would like a service manual let me know, no extra charges... Robert
You need to see if voltage is getting to the board thought the sail and limit switch, if the board is getting voltage then yes board, if the board is not getting voltage then no, sail switch or limit switch issue, let me get you a wiring diagram...

Click HERE for a service manual. You should have voltage on the white wire at the board if the circuit is complete, no voltage on that wire, no spark.
