Does the pilot valve open? Does the pilot flame impinge properly on the flame sensor? A low or weak/yellow flame will not activate the sensor adequately to bring on the main valve. Call your gas supplier to have this looked at and follow their recommendations.

Wont heat

do you hear 3 clicks when you start it up,these clicks are the gas valves opening to supply the unit with gas for operation,if no clicks are heard it can be the thermal fuse is open,if only 1 or 2 clicks check continuity of the main and secondary gas valve coils as they can open up or get weak from heat during operation,usually just replace both coils on the gas valve as they are inexpensive one has 3 connections and the other has only 2 connections,but first bypass the thermal fuse with a jumper wire (for testing only) then replace the gas valve coils next,unplug both coil connections then remove 2 screws holding the valves to the valve and replace and reverse dis-assembly procedure

Gas thermostat control not opening

if you mean the gas wont turn on after trying to light it could also be a bad thermocouple , it can't feel the heat so it wont open the main gas valve , this is a cheep fix

Burner lites but goes out after 2 or 3 min.

the white rodgers gas control needs to be replaced;
the way it works is: the thermocouple opens the pilot gas circuit and, holds it open
when it heats up by creating a magnetic field in the gas control then: when you turn
the knob on the gas control to "on" a valve inside the gas valve opens the main gas circuit and, electricity supplied by your RV keeps it open.
the main gas coil inside the gas valve is defective and, can not hold the main gas circuit to the burner open anymore.

Pilot staying lit but the burners will not ignite

The cheapest place to start is with the thermocouple or thermopile, if it is not sending the right millivolts signal to the main gas valve then it wont open & allow gas to the burners. The next would be the t-stat and then the gas valve.
