Try it with a lighter first to see if they light. You may have to unscrew the burners and clean them out.

There may be a shutoff valve either under the trailer where the gas goes up to the range, or inside the cooktop. Raise the cover and look where the gas comes in. Usually you turn the handle of that kind of valve to be in line with the gas pipe inlet and outlet to turn them on.

Mine is under the cook top. Just lift up from the front (it is hinged), the valve is right there at the front. Mine is a 93 so it could be different but a valve is likely somewhere handy.

Thumbs up

Ours is hard to light after non-use or tank fill, does take some time to bleed the air from the lines. We find it helpful to use a butane match to speed the process.
