Default New member. Multiple issues

Hi everyone. Im new to this whole forum thing. I've got a 1982 Funchaser 2182. I've already read a few ideas on my interior lighting issues but I'm sure I'll run across more problems as I update the camper. I look forward to input and ideas.

So far, my water system hasn't been used in 2 years. To my knowledge, the hot water and furnace haven't been used in longer. Stove works but the oven doesn't want to light. At some point, a new converter was installed prior to me getting the trailer. I'm trying to repair and update the mechanics as well as the interior and exterior.

Do the burners on your stove light with an even blue flame? If not then a good place to start it to make sure you get a new regulator and new hoses for propane. Do you have propane in your tanks. Look for the model and make of your appliances. Then google for more trouble shooting information. You tube is also a good source of tutorials as to fixing things on your RV.

The stove works great. The oven just doesn't want to light. I'm getting the gas feed but it doesn't want tostay lit.

Look in the library section for some manuals. My HiLo is covered for winter so I can't get at any manuals out. 1990 25ft. Classic. Do you have a volt meter?

Default Stove not staying lit

I am assuming your oven is like mine. DH just told me what to say to you. Push in turn the oven knob to the poilet position. Then get on the floor and light the piolet flame inside the oven. If it won't light it could be your thermocouple. If you decide to replace the thermocouple remove it and take to the store with you. Not sure if you can just get this at any hardware store or it has to be a RV place. If that doesn't solve your problem it could be the valve. Their is the possibility that some parts may not be available for a unit this old. Let us know what happens.
