got it

The good news is that hair grows back, right? I 'm kidding.

I have no pilot light marking on the oven dial so I had the lighter lit and statrted at the lowest oven setting and it lit straight away. I was surprised by the large size and the disbursement of the flame as I turned up the oven, it got hot immediatly.

As I lowered and raised the temp it would go out and relight....some times I'd hear the gas sound pretty loudly. It seems a bit odd and somewhat dangerous to have a flame and propane building in an enclosed oven but....

Anway, we head to Pacific Beach, WA so now we can bake rolls in the rain.

Yay!! Congrats! And the eyebrow-less look is *really* in nowadays...

Just be sure when you run the stove or oven that you follow the directions for venting! And it is a VERY good idea to have a CO detector in the coach, if you don't already!

Maybe the prior owner bought the upgrade on the oven dial ...

The pilot flame is small and blends with the lighter flame so you may have to move the lighter away to see if it has caught.

If you are lighting it for the first time, or after it sits for a long time, you will probably have air in the line and it may not light right away. If there is air, you will probably see the lighter flame move like it is being blown, but there will be no ignition. Keep trying, and it should light.

If it does not light and you don't smell propane, you may have a supply problem. Check your valves to make sure they are open and a line is not kinked somewhere.

Good luck!

Susan
Hey Alumnatube, I don't understand why our oven isn't working. I believe I have the same setup as you and Dan. Our oven actually worked the first time we spent a weeekend at a KOA in Maryland. That was in July 2008. Since then my wife has used the stovetop with no problem. I just went outside and tried to light the oven with all burners off. Did not work. I tried it with one burner on, still did not light. I guess I'll just let the AS guys figure out why the pilot lighted one time and the oven worked and since then the pilot has not lighted. Any other easy-quick suggestions other than making AS fix it?

P.S. we ARE under warranty.

We have a new 07 Safari. Colonial checked it out before we bought it, so we knew it worked. We to the Jersey Shore Airstream Park, (as quests of Colonial) and it took quite a while to lite the oven. Later on the trip, it took the even longer to start the oven, even though the top burners started immediately. Seems like it just takes a long time to get the air out. It might take two people because the oven knob has to be HELD in until the burner lights.

I'll light the oven this evening. If I don't report back, call 911.

To broil, put a broiler pan UNDER the oven's single burner (on the bottom of the oven). Flip your steak, etc. when it's done on the first side.

To bake, put a rack over the burner. It's a small capacity oven so you're not going to do any 40 lb. turkey's in there without disassembling them.

Thanks for the tip starflyte1. I had turned the oven knob to pilot but I did not hold it in. As you stated, sounds like a two person operation.

Good news starflyte1. I went out and tried lighting the oven. The wife held the pilot button in while I lit the pilot - success! Thanks for the heads up!
