  1. Yes, the cooktop is on the slideout wall. That is a good thought and we (meaning my husband) will look at the possibility. We are home now and the cooktop is lighting, as it should.
  2. No, there is no oven. Thank you for the link. I looked at it and left a message. There is a local service center which I will contact also. This morning the burner ignites.

    Maiden voyage in new motorhome

    We took our new motorhome 1500 miles to West Virginia. Our first class C vehicle. Loved the easier turning and backing up. Most state parks are almost empty at this time of the year. Several new parks to us were Rocky Gap State Park and New Germany & Cowger's Riverside in WV. The design of the motorhome is very good. One picture shows our black lab, Ginger, enjoying the view.
  4. Thank you for replying. No we don't smell gas. Everything else that runs on propane is working. The Motorhome and cooktop are brand new (one week old). We have been on the road for seven days and it stopped igniting (intermittently) two days ago. The model is Suburban SCN3BE with Piezo ignition. This explanation of Piezo ignition is provided by Wikipedia: Piezo ignition is a type of ignition that is used in portable camping stoves, gas grillsand some lighters, and potato guns. It consists of a small, spring-loaded hammer which, when a button is pressed, hits a crystal of PZT or quartz crystal. Quartz ispiezoelectric, which means that it creates a voltage when deformed. This sudden forceful deformation produces a high voltage and subsequent electrical discharge, which ignites the gas. No external electric connection is required, though wires are sometimes used to locate the sparking location away from the crystal itself. Piezo ignition systems can be operated by either a lever, push-button or built into the control knob. Only one electric spark is generated per turn of the knob or press of the button. I wonder if the igniter is damp from all the rain we have had? But if that were true, the gas should have lit from a match. It did not. Ann Andrews
  5. Our 3 burner cook top only lights intermittently. It is a one week old RV. The gas lights when we are parked at our campsite and plugged into electric. But the gas does not light when we stop for lunch and want to cook a lunch. We have a spark ignition. When it doesn't work, neither a match or the handheld igniter work.

  6. We plan to travel from New York state into Canada in June with our 2 year old black lab. What is an authoritative information source on what we need to do? A previous post eluded to "dog food" as an issue. Does the dog food have to be in an original container?
