Atwood Water Heater

Hi Everyone,
I'm new here .. I have 2000 Mountain High class A Pinnacle with a trusty Ancient Atwood propane water heater that I keep going as much as I can. About two months ago I replaced my single switch red light with the Diplomatic remake switch ( since they bought out Atwood )....with a new one because after 23 years the red light just wouldn't light anymore. The new switch has been working as normal untill yesterday. I had cut the switch off, then back on...maybe a little too quick....????
And it flashed.... Now it comes on SLOW and have DIMMED....Not BRIGHT....and the water heater is NOT STRIKING TO LIGHT.
I replaced fuse in water heater, and pushed the reset button....have also flipped my breaker....still Half dim strikes....

Atwood Water Heater

Are you on shore power or battery? Sounds like a low coach battery. Are they charged?
