Water heater for Flagstaff 205TT Tent trailer

Hi, For the life of me I can't figure out how to light the hot water heater. The model is SIT 610 AC3, and the label says 'assembled in Romania'. The names 'Suburban' or 'Atwood' don't appear anywhere. The instructions on the label says 'push the reset button - but there is no reset button. It says to light the pilot light - but where is it? I turned on the propane, put a lighter into what seemed the obvious place - nothing happens. The Forest River manual says 'see the manufacturers owners manual', but nothing comes up on the internet under SIT water heaters.

GRRRRRR!

thanks for any assistance you can give!
John

The SIT 610 AC3 is the number of the gas valve. There should be another label on the heater somewhere.

Can you post a picture of the front of the heater?
