Water heater

I have an 01 wildcat. Heater will click and come on for just a few seconds then go off. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

Air in the line?
Empty propane?
Popped opd valve?
If it has an electrical side does that work?

Has gas. Worked yesterday so not sure how it would get air in the line. All electrical works. How would I check the opd valve?
Thanks

Turn off the gas valve on propane tank and slowly turn it back on.

Did you turn the gas off and then turn it back on between the working and non working time?

Assuming you have remote start/light on your water heater. Does your light come on inside telling you there is a problem?

There has to be a thermacouple or flame sensor of some sort to detect the flame. It could be dirty or bad. Try rubbing it with some sandpaper to clean it. Happens all the time with central hvac heating systems. Works this time and on the next heating cycle nothing.
