Default Pilot lights wont stay lit

We just got back from our first outing with our T139. After we set up the trailer I tried to light the pilot's for the fridge and the hot water tank. On the fridge I could hold in the gas safety valve and hit the striker mant times and watch the needle move to the green area which says that a flame is present but as soon as I would release the gas valve the needle would drop back to the start. I had my wife hold the gas valve in while I held a bbq lighter to it from outside and could see it light but as soon as she would release the button the flame would go out. The hot water tank was much the same, I had it lit at one point only to have it go out shortly after. I checked the stove and it worked fine, nice blue flame coming from both burners. What should I be checking/cleaning and or replacing to get the propane part of the trailer working?......fridge works great when its plugged in to power by the way so I know it works.
Thanks for any help.

Default Water Heater

I brought home my new X210 and had the same problem. I was able to fix mine by finally figuring out I was not getting a good connection from the battery. The black wire had worked itself lose causing a bad connection. I guess the safety works off of 12Volt. Be sure you push the button on the hot water heater itself before setting the switch inside the camper.
