The Water Heater In Our RV Will Not Light

by Oliver Jackson
(Williamson WV)

When trying to light my heater in my 92 Coachmen Royal no gas is released into the burner....The electronic ignition sparks but there is no gas to ignite....The stove burners inside the camper work and the furnace also lights up, but no gas releases into the hot water tank burner...Could you tell me what the possible cause of this could be.
