Question atwood water heater problem

I have an old atwood G6A-4E hot water heater. during a rebuild I cannot figure where the white wire from the circuit board with the female spade connector goes.it says it goes to the flame sensor/spark probe but one wire goes to the spark plug like wire and the other small red wire goes to a small black wire with a connector to the right side of the circuit board. what do I do with it? thanks mike

I have an '89 Atwood 6 gal DSI in the old RV. Gas and electric.

No white wire, but here is a picture I just took. Maybe it will help

There is one black wire on the right side - maybe that one is white on yours .

The wiring schematic shows the white wire going to the straight probe of the sparker.

Exclamation banging my head

mine looks just like COUGARKID'S with the straight spark probe going to the little black wire on the right with a tiny spade connector. the white wire from the connector on the left has a spade connector that would fit on the thermister but thats not where it goes? I emailed atwood but they say there is no tiny black wire on the side and that I am crazy (well not really) maybe it is an extra wire included for another model that would use the function? I doubt it as I used an ohm meter to see if the small black wire and the white wire are internally connected but they are not. I cannot test the heater yet as the fresh water tank is out being repaired and I cannot fire it up.

I recently bought the motorhome used and the hot water tank was split from improper winterizing. my fresh water tank also had a leak. I sent the tank out to have fixed but when reassembling I could not figure out where the white wire goes.

even atwood tech does not seem to know?
they tell me it may be a ground but with a quick connect connector on it?
I am afraid to ground it as I may short out the electronics.
can anyone tell me for sure>
