I thought of that one, but decided I didn't want to be the smart ass that said it.

And this type would be? Not having to light one sounds ideal to me as my tendonitis might not like lighting it if it requires a lot of pressure. And I'd be traveling w/o many times.

How about installing a piezo push button ignitor? You know, the kind used on propane barbecues. There's quite a number of folks on FiberglassRV that have installed these. You can get everything you need at a big box hardware store.
Here's one link: I got spark - Fiberglass RV

I installed this battery igniter: : GrillPro 20620 Electric Push Button Igniter : Grill Igniters : Patio, Lawn & Garden

I have the stainless cooktop and I drilled a hole near each burner to mount the spark electrode. Others have made brackets to hold the electrode. Electronic Stove Ignitor - Fiberglass RV

For lots of hits just Google: RV stove igniter

I've volunteered to light it for her, but she wants to be able to do it for herself. The Camco unit may be the easiest solution. Thanks all.

Get some bamboo skewers and a bic lighter. Use the lighter to light one end of the skewer, stick the skewer in to where the pilot light is, turn on the gas and voila, you have flame. One skewer can be used for lots of lightings.


We're still have'n fun...
