Not sure what model oven you have, but here's the manual from mine. See page 4, section B...should be of help.

We almost always have to light a stovetop burner before the oven will light. I've heard many others say that, too. It works for us. We also find it easier if one person reaches in with the lighter whild the other turns the knob on the stove.

Assuming we have the same stove in our 233s, I find the following steps work:

Bleed the lines by lighting a burner. Usually just needs to be done at the start of a trip.

Open oven, turn oven knob to pilot, push and hold while holding a flame near the oven pilot.

If this doesn't work, than there are issues with the oven that need to be corrected.

Push the knob in at the pilot position and hold in for at least 30 seconds...when you release, the pilot will stay on.

How old is your trailer? If it continues to fail to stay lit, that I might recommend you look into a couple of issues I have read about. Bad thermocoupler comes to mind first.

I agree with Triguy...every time I've had a gas appliance either in home or the RV that wouldn't stay lit after the button was released, the problem was a bad thermocouple.
