Give it all a good blow out... sounds like a bit of soot is partially blocking the jet...

If you have been running on gas at some point and not been exactly level you get a soot ball develop in the chimney which when dislodged can drop down partially blocking the jet..

Got to be worth a try... (y)

I had a lovely Dometic man look into my jet. He took off the jet unit and using a Co2 can, gave it a good blow.. I actually saw bits of muck fly off. Job done!
Personally I would have been less confident than him, in removing the jet which he did in seconds.
It could of course be many other things causing your problem. Check the colour of the flame which I believe should be blue. If not then you are checking out the right area.

Took it apart and you could see that the flame was all over the place.
Took screw that you can see in pic out dropped burner down and give it a good blow out with air line. Seems fine now but time will tell I,v also checked all those wires that dpsuk999 said about just in case.

Well that’s this years subs payed for just in knowledge alone many thanks to everyone.
