Attwood water heater problem in our 2004 Daybreak

The Atwood Water heater in our Daybreak is declining rapidly.First it could be lit from the inside & have a reasonably good flame & air adjustment was ok.Then the flame was not much stronger than a match(still would fire from inside)& no air adjustment.Now it will not fire from the inside.We have changed the regulator & have blown out the vent with air;checked for dirt & spiders & made sure the orifice is clear.I think it might be one of the circuit boards or the solenoid???? Any other suggestions will be appreciated;thank you.

Depending on the model, the circuit board can't really do much except turn the solenoid valve on or off so a weak flame should be due to something else. There are two valves in series (for safety) so possible that one of the valves is not opening fully.

Have you physically unscrewed the orifice to check that it really is clear and the housing that it screws into isn't full of debris
