2004 Wildwood LE Hotwater Heater will not light.

Hello! Recently purchased a 2004 Wildwood Le travel trailer model #BH22. The hot water heater, which is LP gas only will not ignite the pilot light. Any suggestions about the cause? LP cylinders are brand new. Camper was winterized before I purchased it.... Thanks for any help!

I have trouble with my 2011. Light stove burner inside. Hold down pilot button, switch on igniter switch wait about 30 seconds and blow gently on pilot. I have found this moves the gas closer to igniter flicker and lights right up

Actually tried that this afternoon. Both stove and refigerator were working properly. Starting to think its the ignition switch. What brand water heater does forest river install? I have no paperwork on it all.

Can you post a photo of the outside of the unit?
It might help someone here identify it.

Got it working finally. Was able to use a long grill lighter and it took a little while to get it going but finally got it! All set to head to Hatteras Island, Nc in a week or so! Thanks for the help!
