Propane appliances usually run on 10-11 inches of water column, this is about 1/2 pound of pressure. If the regulator you have is not rated for delivering gas at that rate, you will need to find one that does. If your regulator is rated for more than the 11 inches, most likely you could have damaged the appliance regulator that came with the heater. Check the propane pressure specified by the heater manufacture against the rated supply of your regulator and see if they match. Make sure the heater is rated for Propane and NOT Natural Gas. Check to see if the gas valve on the appliance is in the operate position and all valves are open. Bleed off the air in the gas line by holding down the pilot switch and keep attempting to light the pilot. It could take you a few minutes. If you hear and smell gas but the unit will still not light, don't chance at getting hurt, call a technician. Look to make sure there are no safety switch that may have triggered off not allowing the gas valve to operate. And make sure there is no obstruction in the heater?s gas valve blocking off the supply of gas. Always exercise caution when it comes to gas and if you are uncomfortable, call a qualified gas technician.

I the electrical gas switch valve set to on? If not...
Is there also a gas valve and is it on? If so...
Does the exhaust fan turn freely?
If not then then electrical gas valve will not open the gas valve. I have seen these bearing get loose and then the exhaust tips toward the inside inhibiting the fan from turning. Note: this is not the large blower but a smaller fan for the exhaust fumes.
Is the Vacuum hose from the exhaust to the sensor in good condition and attached at both ends? If not fix hose or connect both ends.
When repairing a unit, many tech will turn off the gas for saftey.

There is really not a lot to go wrong with the heater itself so my first guess would be that the regulator is bad, not letting the proper amount of gas through. You can check it for leaks with a bottlee of soapy water but even if you don't see a leak there is a rubber gasket inside with a pressure spring that is probably bad.
