85 Holiday Rambler Class A with Hydroflame Model 82 help

I've got what seems to be a common problem from the threads I've ready anyway - the Hydro Flame Model 82 furnace in my 85 Rambler doesn't light. The MH is new to It clicks like it is going to light but doesn't. I tried running it for a while to make sure the gas was flowing, and I could smell propane outside. I checked the intake and exhaust for blockages. I wanted to look more deeply into the furnace itself, but I don't know what I can/should take off, or how to get it out of the RV. It is under the seat of the dinette, and I can't tell how to get at anything without taking the furnace out, but I'm not even seeing how to take it out. Is it as simple as disconnecting the gas line and the electrical connectors and unscrewing the unit from the floor?

Yes to your question. More than likely the burner area needs cleaning. You might find some videos on doing the job on line, I don't know I have not checked but it would not surprise me these days.
