Water Heater not staying lite (propane)

Water heater acting up 4 days ago, on propane. I'll turn it on to propane, it fires up for about 5-10-15 seconds then stop working, turn the switch off and back on it will do the same thing, run for a while, or maybe not,or maybe even heat the water, but more often NOT it seems now. It works fine on electricity with no issues. I also did remove most wire connections and restick them back on to there terminal connections. Does this sound like the flame sensor, and is there some way to test if it's faulty? It's an Atwood water heater.

You will need a new circuit board.


You can get one on Amazon.
The originals from this period are junk.

I took everything apart, and cleaned everything, including the probes on the wire wheel, the ground also looked a tad poor, but everything works now. I truly blame the ground on this mystery. Another thing in my search for a replacement is ALL the circuit boards are of POOR QUALITY FROM ATWOOD. Better to replace with the American made Dinosaur electronics board. https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B0130Y8I1K/...v_ov_lig_dp_it
