Water heater mdl G6A-8E

Back again. About a month ago we were going camping for the first time this season and the Atwood water heater wouldn't light. Phoenix and Hodum got me on the right track and the unit worked the few days we were gone. Now....Going again Monday to Lake Kerr, NC and heater not working. I took all the connections loose and cleaned/tightened, checked both 2a fuse and the other one in the sleeve and continuity on both. Took out the ECO and T-Stat, cleaned terminals, then put them back snugly. Cleaned the lighting tube (found mud dauber nest..removed) and checked the orifise again and found nut was loose...tightened. Cleaned contacts on the circuit board. Checked U-Tube and nothing new I haven't tried (I don't think). Now...

Turn on switch in trailer - red light
Hear strike - pilot lights
Wait about 30 seconds and another click with a flash of flame (no light--pilot goes out). I waited 30 seconds to 5 minutes between a multitude of attempts to no avail.
Red light stays on all through this procedure.

I do not know what else to try, if anything. Any suggestions? Going anyway, with or without water heater. I believe Lake Kerr has bathing facilities, hopefully.Thanks
