I can't seem to get the oven to light in my camping trailer. I followed the directions to the letter, after several trys without instruction...and I dont think its me....I rarely use the oven, but last camping trip I was going to make sausage gravy and biscuits. I made a few biscuits before we went, but on the second day my grandson wanted more, I tried to light the oven to make some pillsbury grands, and it would not light....anybody ever have this issue? Will be campign with my son next weekend and he might want sausage biscuits so i am just thinking I should ask now.

Does the stove too light? If not, could just be air in the lines. Leave it turned on for a few minutes while trying to light it to bleed the lines.
Does it have an ignitor or do you need a match? Maybe the ignitor moved a little.
Is the gas turned on? Had to ask the obvious.

Yep, stove works great, no problems with anything else not igniting....jsut the oven. Odd , huh ? I can smell gas when I push in the ignitor like it says to do, but it doesnt light, so I take one of those long lighter things and put it down there trying to catch it, but still doesnt light, I bet this is jsut something I am not doign right as opposed to a mechanical issue

Don't think I haven't thought of that lol

Doesn't help to see all those great camper pics Lerch posts. We went to that RV show and found my camper, 3 feet longer, wiht four bunks in the back, a single sink ( yay ) , a SLIDE OUT which makes it huge....so don't encourage me.....

The one thing that my dad found when his oven would not light is that the ignitor was shifted away from the pilot light. Once he was able to set the ignitor in the right location he had no problems with his oven.

Try using your long lighter thing to light the oven burner or broiler directly.Put the lighter flame next to the burner and turn on the oven.That works for me and I still have my eyebrows.

PS. Biscuits should be made in a dutch oven by the campfire.

I wanted you to try lighting the oven burner with your lighter. I usually light mine that way because my pilot light is a pain to get lit.
