Which button? The one on the pilot or the switch by the sink?
Did you see my link to the new fender skirts? I think those are the ones you need?

The actual pilot button, the one that you press down and hold, once your pilot flame is on you turn to on and if burner doesn't ignite , push down on the on button and that is what turns on the burner.

That's a new one on me.

Every one I've ever seen, you turn from OFF to PILOT, push it down and hold until the pilot is lit and warms up the thermocouple enough to keep it lit, then just turn the knob from PILOT to ON and whatever you're lighting fires up. I've never heard of having to push it down again once it was in the ON position.

Right, this is why it took me a couple of days to figure out. Once I pushed down the burners turned on.

After the crapper it's the awning repair , then going to be a huge cleaning inside. I'm going to scrub every inch of that floor , inside of drawers, shampoo couches and booth seats. Once inside is clean I move to the outside, I plan on caulking everything that may need it , then scrubbing the entire outside with CLR till its white then priming and repainting my stripes , applying a clear coat to the stripes and then applying some kind of wax to the entire exterior since the clear coat is pretty much gone on the trailer. Somewhere in between all of that i will paint the window trim, tongue black, replace the chains, the hand crank lift, rear bumper and then eventually the wheels and tire. This may seem like a lot of work and it is but it's pretty cheap. Then eventually add the WD which I already have and then the van electric brakes and then I'm pretty much set. I do a little here and there daily. I just got back from the store I bough a digital converter box so that I can watch tv, that was 30$. So far it's been all small purchases, my biggest purchase will be my wheels and tires and they are 200$.

This is going to be fun to watch your progress. I look forward to your 1st camp fire pics. You are doing great so far, won't be long at this pace.

If I didn't have to work for a living I'd be halfway done, lol. But I'm on it , I really enjoy working on this camper.

Lol, my teenage kids ask why I don't do anything at the campsite, I bust my a $$ working so I don't have to do anything at the campsite but feed the fire and keep the beers rolling out of the cooler. Good times!
