Oven Trouble

I have got all the gas run machines in our '85 Pace Arrow working except the Oven. I can not get the pilot light to ignite. Can anyone help please?

Typically when a pilot light fails it is due to a blocked jet or a dead thermocouple. Unscrew the jet and clean it out, being careful not to distort or enlarge the orifice. The thermocouple (if equipped) is a simple and mostly cheap replacement item.

Don't know what your stove's model is .... but on my 1992 rig's original gas stove there is a small on-off valve at the front of stove right under the stove top lid. Whether I want to use the oven or burners I have to flip on this little valve and light the pilot for the stove top burners. Then I can light the oven's pilot.

So lift your stove top and see if there is a little valve of some type that you need to flip on in order for your oven and burner pilots to light. :-)

2nd thing to look for is if the oven temp knob controls the pilots! I turn the knob to ON so the pilot has more gas to giter going.
