Amazon has a wide selection of them. Hard wired or battery op.
I have a hard time smelling gas when I'm sleeping. I don't use the pilot light on my stove. It has blown out at times with all the windows open.
I have mine installed low, lp is heavier and collects near the floor.

Mine is Black! It has all the appliance manuals and even includes the original Scamp Brochure and order form with pricing from Scamp!

What cool is your log? - Mine is black but I also include info about the places I have camped and make notes as to where I might camp if I went back to the same area again.

There are a number of factors for installation. MTI says 4" to 20" from the floor, not near a door etc. etc.
It really pays to read the instruction manual and save it to refresh yourself later ( which is what I've been doing today ).

My log is black and probably from the same Staples store on Marine Drive.
I also make notes on campsites, weather, recipes, fishing success ( or lack of ).

If I may ask: what make/model of stove is in your Bigfoot?

I don't think I've ever heard of an RV stove that has a pilot light. Most in my experience are either match lit or have a spark (piezo) ignition.

Its a Wedgewood four burner with oven.
I found a used one on eBay that is the same oven as ours, less the cover.
There is a tiny set screw under the oven control knob. Which allows you to turn off the gas to the pilots.
