Water Heater

Greetings: We have an Atwood water heater MPD93756 in our 27'FB Safari. Today I turned it on at the bathroom switch, and it ran 5 seconds, shut off, and repeated. I tried it several more times, and the same thing happened. For the five seconds, the flame is a good blue, and the other gas appliances work fine. I took off the flue, and checked it; it's clean. I wiggled and checked the connections to the board. It still does not work.
Is it the board? Thermocouple? Thermostat? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Also, if any of the above, how easy is the repair for one not terribly handy?

A Thousand Thanks.... Jeffrey Cooney
