SOURCE: Heater goes off
Possibly A bad thermocoupler. It is the part that looks like a stiff solid copper wire with on end sticking in the flame of the pilot light and is a safety feature if the pilot goes out it starts to cool and the resistance changes back you the module and the module shuts the gas off. I have seen these go intermediately faulty in waterheaters and do just what you described.

Behind the unit near the floor level, is a yellow wire with a black bulb at the end. This is the actual sensor for returning air. If there is cool air infiltrating the area where it is located, it will keep the unit running until the return air reaches temperature. You could also have a bad sensor but highly unlikely. Make sure there is no air infiltration influencing the sensor. Also, you can unclip the sensor and pull out a few more inches of wire to locate it higher up away from the floor. Tie it up with a wire tie.
Rinnai it testing a remote thermostat but as of yet, there is no plans to offer one.

SOURCE: Pilot light will not stay lite?
For some reason it seems the safety protection is activated? Perhaps a faulty thermocouple? Usually that anyway. Or electronics have failed.

SOURCE: converting Rinnai REH-25-N to LP
Typically, an unvented heater or gas log cannot be converted, mostly for safety reasons and it is usually cost prohibitive. Some newer heaters come with both Natural Gas and Propane components and have to be set up one way or the either.
It would be better to sell your old heater and get one with the proper gas type.
