Hot Water Heater -2011 Wildwood

Hi ,
We just started using our 2011 Wildwood 30 ft travel trailer & we love it but we are having a few problems . This trailer is parked on a seasonal lot so it is not being moved around . This weekend the hot water heater will work on electric but it will not work on propane .It had been working last weekend but it stopped working correctly this weekend .Has anyone ever encountered this problem & have a solution to fix this ?We are hoping that it can be an easy fix instead of having to tow it to the dealer for service .
We also had a problem with one of the joins in the wall in the bedroom came apart ,the stereo will not work properly etc etc .

Thanks

Check the battery it may need 12 volt to start.

I know this is how the fridge works on propane

IF you are plugged in the electric element will keep the water hot
and the gas won't light.

We understand that if we have the electriciry connected then the gas will not light .We had tried the gas but it shut off so we had to go with electric. We had 30 lbs off fuel so we had plenty of fuel .

You may check for a blockage in the gas line, bees are attracted to the smell of propane and often will start to build their nest.... just a suggestion
