I see you are in Alberta how cold is it there? The water heater just maybe trying to keep up with the outside temp. Also have you tried it on electric if it has that option?

You don't say what model water heater you have, and whether or not it's pilot or electronic ignition.
Atwood has a good troubleshooting guide in their website.
There are also a number of good videos on YouTube for troubleshooting.
I would first make sure the main burner tube is clean and free of debris or spider webs. I would be looking at and testing the thermocouple or spark sensor/electrode.
Do you have a clean, blue flame that goes straight out the burner tube, and across the spark sensor?
