water heater pilot adjust

I have a 1996 Atwood G10-2 10 gal water heater in my 1972 27' International. The water heater works fine, but the pilot flame seems to have gotten quite large in the last year. The flame is blue, and does not go out, just seems like it has not been so large in the past, all other gas appliances work fine.

I have the install manual, but it is unclear to me if there is an adjustment for the size flame of the pilot light.

You might check to see if your LP regulator is not putting out too much pressure. It should be about .43 psi which is 11 inches of water on a manometer.
