Oven won't stay lit

Putting this in the General section because I figure all Jayco's have roughly the same oven.

This past weekend, we had a casserole to cook, so the wife went in and lit the oven and put the food in. Checked it a few minutes later, and it was out. Lit it again and walked away. Few minutes later, out again. We did this five or six times before moving our food to our friends trailer. Their oven was the same, but worked great.

The pilot light lit fine every time, and then the oven itself would come on when we turned the knob; after a few minutes though, it was out. The last time I tried, every time I turned the oven on, it would blow out the pilot light.

Any ideas? FYI, the stove worked just fine, as did the fridge when running on gas.

I'm guessing you checked the gas level.
Will the stove top burn? All elements at the same time?
Water heater OK?
Fridge on gas OK?
Furnace?

If the other gas appliances seem fine then I'd bet something to do with the thermocouple control.

All other gas appliances seemed to be working fine, but I was plugged in and running on full electricity, so I wasn't using any. I did light the stove though and confirmed that it lit up fast and ran for a few seconds before turning it off.

That would be my guess as well. If it does not stay hot enough it will not remain lit.

I guess I'll be hauling it in to the dealer the next time I have it hooked up. Thankfully it's still under warranty, and this is the first issue I've had with it, so it's not all bad.

Let me just add that whenever I have seen this problem on ovens, water heaters, gas fireplaces, etc., it was always the thermocouple.

Is this an easy/cheap item to replace? If so, I'd rather do it myself than take it back to the dealer as it's a hassle to pull out of storage.

I haven't seen it on the TT but it's usually just a threaded nut that holds it in place. Once removed, you simply lift it out, insert the new one and tighten it back up.

Can't speak to replacing one on our ovens. I've done it on the household water heater before and it's no biggie.
Check the position of the thermocouple and pilot light. The thermo will keep the gas on only if the pilot keeps it hot enough (assuming it works at all).
The problem could also be with the pilot valve.
I suspect Jayco would have a cow (read: affect your warranty) if they knew you did a DIY.
That said, they were very accommodating in replacing the radio/DVD/CD player by sending me a replacement directly.
