It doesn't appear to. I held the knob for a couple minutes and the lighter as well by the pilot assembly. Never heard the hiss of gas, never smelled gas, but don't know if the flame was jumping or not. Even tried turning the oven temp up to get more gas to no avail.

Did you hold the oven knob down in the pilot position? There is a place when turrning the knob the knob will push down. Hold it there(pushing down) and put a match or lighter to the pilot orfice under the oven till it lights. Hold a little longer till the thermocoupler warm up and the pilot stays on. Then turn up the oven.

Nope, the buying never ends. We're about to take our first long trip...have had our baby 3 months, this is our fifth trip, so I'm picking up a

"tire aid" tomorrow...no jack needed if you have a flat.
CAMCO 22 - Camco Mfg Trailer-Aid Flat Tire Jack 22 - RV Plus

Also picking up a volt meter that just plugs into an outlet...monitors voltage.

Gosh I'm learning so much from everyone here! DH reads here a lot, just doesn't post much. I'm the chatty cathy in this marriage. /snork

The trick is to find the notch on the oven knob where it pushes down. That is when gas only comes out of the pilot. No where else! Till the pilot warms up. Turning it past the notch will not allow any gas out to the burner.

I bought one of those as well! After blowing a tire on the way home from purchasing it, I said never again will I be stranded on the road!!

I suggest you take it to a dealer. There's nothing else we can do for you.

Do you feel qualified to replace the gas valve behind the knob, and to pay the price for it knowing that there may be something else wrong instead of that? (For instance, maybe the pipe between the valve and the pilot isn't connected, or there's some adjustment on the valve that is closed off.)

Sure. Doesn't look like that big of a job long as the gas is off.

I hate the ovens. Pilots are difficult to light. You think you have the lighter at the pilot and you are just warming up the shield. I think it will light. Get a pillow, get comfortable get a small mirror to help see the pilot, use a flashlight, gather your wits. You will not hear gas, you will not hear a hiss, you will not hear a whoosh. You may not see much of a blue flame. Keep that knob marked pilot pushed in. Give it one more try.

We have used ours twice. I had rather run out of beer than light the damn oven. Now give me the casserole, I can cook it on the grill.
