2016 ace water heater

My water heater keeps going off, Iím assuming that my pilot light is going out?
I can restart it after a few flips of the switch.
Any ideas of a fix?

What does the pilot light flame look like?
(Mostly blue; with just a touch of yellow?)
Perhaps it needs cleaning...

You don't have a pilot light. It has DSI and lights the flame each time it needs to heat up. If your "pilot light out" light comes on it's because your flame is not lighting or not staying lit.

Question Water heater wont fire up

I swear every camping trip something breaks, fails or quits working on this 2016 ace with 7000 miles, maybe thatís why they sold it!
No the water heater wonít work at all 2 more days of cold showers.
Did the spark probe go out or did the circuit board fail??
Humbug

Doesn't work on 120 VAC electric either? May be the circuit board - common Atwood failure item. Replace it with a Dinosaur board if that is the case.
