Starting the pilot light for the water heater
First time I took my Jayco featherlight 16XRB out for a camping trip, I connected everything up, then turned on the propane valve at the tank. About 10 minutes later, I walked over to the hot water heater, moved the blue dial to the pilot light ignite position, then with one of those long shaft butane lighters, tried to light the pilot light. After a minute or two of no success, I turned the dial to the position on for the heater, and finally after about another minute, could hear the gas flowing, and got the "jet" flame going for the heater. Nice blue roaring "jet" flame.
Then I read here that it's best to ignite one of the stove top burners first to verify that propane gas is "flowing" towards the back of the camper.
My concern is the fridge. I plan to make another trip in a few weeks where I'll want the fridge to cool while I travel. If it takes this long to ignite the hot water heater (basically in the same lower area as the fridge), will it take as long for the fridge's "auto" feature to ignite and run off of propane? I know the fridges auto feature will shut off gas if it does not ignite after a try or two, and I have to repeat the procedure.
Any other tricks, such as turn on the propane and wait longer then 10 minutes?
