Angry Suburban SW6DE Hot Water Heater

Okay - I'm stumped. No ignition (no gas). Tube - clean/cleared. No blown fuses. Checked the LP Gas Valve (turned "on" heater switch, ignitor clicked with spark and nothing). Checked electrical the four connectors - each had power when the ignition system was in progress. Had resistance across poles 3&4 - but not 1&2....new valve time? Oh - electrical heating element worked perfectly.

No whiff of gas. The heater, stove, oven and refrigerator all work...perfectly. I "cracked" the line opening into the valve with a soap mixture - bubbled dramatically with a STRONG smell of gas. My conclusion is that it's not opening.....so, it's probably time to replace the valve....unless you know a fix. To top it off.....I've owned the trailer 2 years and 2 months (new) - you can probably guess the dealer's response.
