Our cooktop has an igniter that only works when plugged into shore power or when running the generator. Each burner knob activates the igniter when you push in and then turn the knob.

Sounds like a low end (cheap) range if it has no ignitor.

Are you sure you don’t push one of the knobs down to activate the igniter? One of them would have a little lightening bolt on it.

Some of the lower end units don’t have an igniter. Our current MH has a twist type igniter.

Yes, I’m certain. It must just be a cheap stove unit.
Just seems strange. Heck, a $49 little propane bbq even has an ignitor!

For as much as we use it, the butane lighter will probably last another 5 years…

Grit, my trailer stove has an ignitor that works with or without shore power. Would you like to buy the trailer? [emoticon]

Our Atwood Wedgewood stove had a piezo twist ignitor originally that I converted to an electronic push button ignitor. The ignitor uses a single AA battery that last at least a year. The original ignitor did not lite the oven pilot, but I have the parts to correct that when I get the requisite "roundtoit".

You’d have to throw in your awesome stick shift Mega Cab though, cause I don’t have on of them anymore, because the brodozer we got now would have to do the Carolina squat just to hook a 5ver!

I’ve seen a few articles. About putting an igniter on the oven. Search them out.
