Dometic Sidewise NDA1402 LP Igniter Problem

I purchased (private sale) a used 2008 HR Endeavor a few months ago and everything pretty much checked out except the Dometic NDA1402 Sidewise won't run on LP. I checked everything, to the point of listening for the gas solenoid and manually lighting the burner. It works fine if I light it after hearing the gas solenoid click in. I checked continuity of the igniter and for any shorts but it appears to be good, just not getting any power.

There are three PC boards on this Dometic model. The main board (Dometic part number 385068101) controls the control panel inside the refrigerator, 120V side and passes power to the the Burner Control board (Dometic part number 3850708011) that controls the gas solenoid and igniter condenser and a board that controls the icemaker.

I've pretty much checked everything out and am ready to order the Burner Control board assuming the igniter side of the board is dead, but thought I would ask if anyone has experience with this Dometic model and can confirm the culprit board?

Since the Burner Control board is connected via four wires (yellow-12V power, white-ground, blue-6.65V,gray-5V) to the main board, I am not sure if the main board is defective or it is the Burner Control board ($200). Any help is appreciated!

Thanks, I pull the igniter again and hooked it up to my grill at the house, it sparked fine, no shorts to the ground or cracks. I just ordered the Burner Control board from Camping World, delivered is $198. I'll repost when I get it installed.

OK, Good News, I got the 3850708011 Burner Control Board via Fedex from Camping World today. Hooked it up, turned on the gas and coach batteries, turn the refer on and from inside I heard the gas solenoid click followed by a Tick, Tick, Tick of the igniter. Went out to the rear of the refer and the igniter was still sparking as the gas finally purged and the flame lit up. Problem solved, pretty expensive board though, even with my CW member discount it was $171 and $192 shipped.

After I ordered from CW, I found a dealer in Oregon on Ebay willing to order one from his distributor for $141 plus shipping. Hope this helps others with a similar problem.
