Thanks for the tips, much appreciated!

As other suggested light your stove first to get the gas in the lines.... sometimes if I have heated up the pilot light tubes and it still will not go while holding the pilot light setting I have been known to just turn it to on position and light it but keep you face away from it as it has been known to do a little boom!

Thanks again Carol, any and all tips greatly appreciated. Our stove top works just fine too.

The thing about GAS is sometimes you don't get a second chance to do it right.
If you wait until you are in a campground there will be a plethora of people there to show you what to do

Frank, the ParkLiner is my first camper. I watched a few YouTube video's on how to do-winterize a trailer and figured it out from there. Yes the electro insta start stuff is great for the slackers and older folks lol...It takes me like 2 minutes to light my fridge and water heater.

Now now Deryk, be kind to us. I've had units 30 years ago I had to light. Yes it worked but it's sure nice to just put a buttom now . After you have one you won't want to go back, believe me. One day you'll be an old folk too .

Apparently the only way you can covert one to pushing a button is to get a whole new unit? I thought for sure you should be able to get a kit to upgrade ours, but looking high and low, find naught!

heh Dave....I guess it all goes down to what you need to be comfortable camping! I guess if I was living in it daily convenience sake it would be nice to have.... but honestly I either fire up the pilot flame on the water heater either right before I turn in for a shower, or first thing in the morning when I get my coffee pot starting to perk...so its not really a big deal.

Hey Frank, might want to check your zinc on the water heater....I'm heading to Camping World tomorrow mine needs to be replaced...in a few places I can see the metal rod the zinc is on.

Zinc is fine, but thanks Deryk. I took it out in the fall, put a pipe plug in, and left it in the sink so I wouldn't forget it. I'll need a new one by next year I'm sure. It's amazing to me how fast they deteriorate!

Lit the water heater just now, no problem, once I knew where to light the fool thing! Got good hot water, so that's done, now onto the frig, but not tonight, other things to do.

Frank, I believe you and Pat, and perhaps Huck, are all visiting ParkLiner this week. I'm curious to know if the current trailer frames they are using now have the axle welded on - as was done originally - or bolted on - which I believe was another change they talked about making, but I'm not sure if they have started doing that or not. It certainly could affect the ease of changing out axles down the road. Just curious and would appreciate on update on what you see being done nowadays regarding axle attachment when you tour the factory. Thanks, Dale

Pat & I were there Saturday, and that is not a question I thought to ask Dale. I will be back there Friday and could certainly ask, and I know Huck does not live very far away & is waiting to hear when he can get over. In the meantime, I took a number of pics while there, and here's a few of a bare chassis they had sitting on the floor.

Thanks for the pics, Frank. Still hard to tell if the axle is welded or bolted. But if you think to look or ask when you go back, I'd appreciate it. Dale

I know, I know, but hey, at least I had pics!

I will definitely ask, no problem, and will report back!
