SOURCE: pilot light keeps going out
Change the thermo-couple.......$5-$10 at any home improvement store. It is a copper wire that is connected to the gas valve/control unit on the heater. Remove it by unscrewing it and bring it into the store with you to make picking it easier.

SOURCE: Water Heater Won't Fire up
does the fan come on? this has to happen before it will even try to start if it doesn't your problem goes farther into the unit,, normal pracess if the fan then the ignitor then the flame, It could be in the circuit board most people that have gone with the tankless don't clearly ask the question but that is normal, but if you could clearify the procedure of what it is doing to this point i could be more helpful to you---- e-mail me what is happeing diffrent then what it use to do firstname.lastname@example.org

Thank you for providing clear description of product:
Your water heater has intellivent gas control thermostat.
There are always problems with water heaters. It is a huge field.
1) Open following link for AO Smith service manuals.
I do not see service manual specifically for the GP series.
2) Open following link to identify gas valve and download typical service manual:
Some AO smith power vent models have intellivent gas valve, and some have smart valve gas vent. Older models might have knob-type gas valve.
