T​wo things to check. The LP pressure may be too low and it should be checked and adjusted as needed at least once a year. If it gets too low it won't keep the end of the igniter in the flame and the flame sense on the board may not be energized. So check that and then if that checks out, it could be the control board itself. See the attached link for a copy of the Atwood check list. Print that out so you have it. Let me know what you find and we can go from there. All follow ups are included in our fee. http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/atwoodreefer.pdf
