Water heater acting up

I have a 2015 320rs. The water heater does not always start on gas. It may or may not light on one of the three attempts. I have replaced the ignition electrode. I also removed the supply line and cleaned the orafice. Any ideas before I replace the burner tube? Test there is plenty of gas in the tanks. Thank you.

The electrode position is critical. If it is off by 1/32" it will create problems. There are, IIRC, 3 dimensions that are critical.

You can lite the burners on the stove and verify you are getting strong flames there. This will let you know that you have a good flow of propane or not. It also purges any air. I do it every time I change my propane tanks. Probably don't need to, but I do it anyway.
