Since it seems several issues with things propane related... I am going to guess that it is a bad pressure regulator?

Others with more knowledge will sure chime in.
Safe travels!

Are you out of propane? Does the stove light to verify that you have propane ? Do you have 12 volt power to the heater board? What voltage are the batteries? All of the above will cause problems lighting the water heater. Check all of these, then look at the burner orfice to see if plugged. Good luck Chris
