Burner on stove won't stay lit

We have a 2011 Jay Series pop-up with a Propane fueled Suburban brand camp stove that mounts on the outside of the camper. [SUP][/SUP]We've been camping for a week and using our propane only once a day for heating water for coffee and oatmeal. Moved to a different location today. We can't get the burner to stay lit. Any ideas as to why?

Are you low on propane? Is it windy? Try turning your propane tank off and then very slowly open the valve on the propane tank. They have a built in shut off in case there is a leak in the system. Sometimes if you turn the valve on quickly the tank "thinks" there is a leak and shuts the flow off.

No I am NOT retired. I work full time.:D

I would suspect you have a spider web (or something similar) in the fuel air mix venturi (sp?). Take the burner apart, start at the burner and work your way towards the valve. Blowing air through that pipe between the burner and the valve most likely will not work. You will need a small brush or a hook like device to remove the bug. There is a small chance there is some debris stuck in the jet in the valve. If that is the case I have cut off a bristle off a brush to insert into the jet to clear it.

I had a cocoon, in the side burner on my gas grill earlier this year. Now my front burner on my TT stove does not work, but I will let the dealer deal with that one, as long as it is under warrenty.
