Refrigerator LP Gas not lighting

I have normally used the refrigerator while towing on LP but recently when I tried to switch it over before towing I could not get the pilot to light. I could hear the gas but it would not light (tried it 3 times as manual suggests).
Dealer says it is due to bad battery .. could this actually be the problem?
Doesn't seem likely to me. I have a 2019 Coachmen Freedom Express
Appreciate all thoughts.

Could you post the make/model of the refrigerator?

When you say "pilot would not light"... that is typical of a refrigerator that doesn't need 12v for the controls or DSI. (direct spark ignition - for lighting)

We can better assist you if you give is more/better information.
