Oven lighting problem

It takes 20 minutes or more for us to get the pilot light in our oven lit. We can hear and see the igniter striking, but the pilot light takes forever to eventually come on, but won’t stay on. Any suggestions?

What is the year of your 5er and what brand of stove/oven?

We have a 2019 Jayco North Point 377RLBH - the stove/oven is Furrion brand.

Make sure you have test lit all of the stove burners, and it helps to have the fridge going. This pretty much assures that gas has been brought to the stove location. My Cyclone took forever, even if gas was running at the burners. The Greyhawk is not near the problem lighting the oven.

With my oven I have to position the knob to the "Pilot" position, press it down, and hold it down steadily for a few minutes before gas reaches the end of the pilot light tube. Then I start trying to light the pilot burner. If it doesn't light, I repeat the process until it does light.

The gas flow to the pilot light is pretty low, so it takes a while for gas to reach the end.

Have you tried doing this?

Our unit takes awhile to purge the lines of air. We light all topside burners and when they are lit turn them off. This way we know the stove is getting propane. Once this step is done you turn the oven knob to pilot and push it in while turning the igniter knob. Once the pilot comes on hold the oven burner knob in for at least a count of 15. Believe they say 30 seconds in the instructions but ours stays on after 15. Then turn up the knob to whatever temp you want. If you want the pilot light to stay on turn knob back to pilot light setting. If you turn the oven off completely you must go thru the lighting procedure again but the purge shouldn't take as long unless you change out a propane tank. The temps on the oven knob are no way near accurate. We use a thermometer to get oven temp. set.

That is the common sequence with all of them.
