1977 overlander heater

my 1977 overlander has a suburban heater with electronic ignition. it lights somrtimes, maybe 50 percent of the time. could the problem be air in the gas line? any idea why it doesnt light?

It may be one of the safety switches going bad... Mine went on my last trip... Fan came on but wouldn't light....


May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..
