Mine takes about 6 tries before it will say lit. I just sit and reset it until it stays lit. Lighting a stove burner first helps a lot.

You said your plunged into the house is the through the camper or with a bypass regular extension cord?
It will need 12V to operate.
With a Battery or through camper cord.

I've looked online and all the symptoms of the issue I can find are rust and debris related. But that isn't the issue here because I keep the vents covered when not in use so it looks brand new in there. Not even so much as a spider's nest.

It's not a big deal, I always get full hook-up sites, more principal. I'll admit that when I have tried the gas mode, my camper was not level at all. Not sure if that makes all the difference of lighting or not lighting.

Make sure the Auto button is pushed to on.
