oven pilot won't stay lit

Its great to have this forum on this rainy day. Very informative. The burners on my Suburban stove top work just fine, but I can't get the oven pilot to stay lit. We just got the trailer last summer and only used the oven once, without issue. The only thing different since the last time I used it is that we changed over to the other propane tank. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks

Leave the knob pushed in for a minute or so. The thermocouple above the pilot light needs to heat up.

Mine stays lit initially and then goes out a few minutes after reaching the desired temp. I'm assuming it may be a warranty issue.

We have the same issue and the dealer is saying it is the thermocouple and it will need to be replaced

I had the same issue and was able to easily fix on my own. The thermocouple mounting bracket just needed to be bent down a little bit to position it closer to the pilot light. If the thermocouple doesn't stay warm by the heat of the pilot light it shuts off the gas flow.
