That's my story as well. Except I have to do it by myself .

I use a log reach lighter to light the oven pilot light.

turn on one of the burners to the stove and purge the air from the lines, then my propane would light on the burner
This worked for me (both for stove pilot and hot water heater pilot in rear of TT).

Recently though, I found another helpful tool;

Pencil Butane Torch

After years of spending 20-minutes plus, trying to light those silly propane heaters with a stick wedged between the casing to depress the pilot switch & endless burnt fingertips from matches or BBQ lighters .... usually with a mag-light between my teeth (and it always seems to be raining or windy when I need to light it) ... I can finally light the thing in under 10 seconds, by myself, one-handed.

When we took delivery my DW looked at that hinged box under the burners and said, "Look a handy pan storage unit! Take a long look at how clean it is. In 10 years when we sell this rig, its going to look just like that!"

So far she has been right on.
