Hi if the gas hasnt reached the burners it wont light. Let me know if you smell the gas?
If not, turn the burners on low, then keep a flame at one of them until it lights that should work. The reason is air in the line, when that gets out the gas will be there ;-) But if you smell gas strong, turn them off and DO NOT TRY ANYTHING ELSE until you talk with me.
If this works, pleas rate kindly. If it doesn't light, please dont rate yet just reply to me for further instructions.
Thank you *****

Hi if you have electric connected and it wont spark you need a new spark module.
Any camper service center or RV shop will have this for you.
