Question Water heater won't work on propane

My water heater worked fine on propane last night. During the night, the red light came on indicating a misfiring. The problem is not the LP supply as my furnace is working and I can smell the Lp outside when I try to ignite the water heater. I do NOT hear any clicking of the electronic ignition, so I'm wondering if anybody has encountered this and could can help me with this issue? Many thanks!

I had that problem recently but mine is not as new as yours. Its original to my 1997LY diesel. My problem was the control module went bad, its almost identical to the module on the furnace which had to be replaced last year.

I've noticed on my 2014 23D that when a tank got down to about 1/4 full the water heater didn't want to stay lit and it displayed the red light. You might want to switch tanks and refill the one you were using.
