Hi my name is Robert....
To start I would blow out the water heater intake and exhaust really good make sure nothing is in the heating chamber. Also blow out the burner tube and I would also try and adjust the air shutter if you have not done so. Make sure the flame spreader is also square to the end of the main burner tube. I might also pull the pilot orifice and soak it in alcohol. After that I would have the LP pressure verified at the back of the water heater, that can be accomplished with a manometer, most RV shops have that tool... Hope this helps some... Robert
