Evening Brad, on most caravans for safety, you need to keep the control knob pushed in until the gas lights or it will not flow through.
Hope this helps..Ozzy

May sound daft but have you got the cooker top/lid fully raised. The oven won't light with it down as a safety feature to stop the glass cracking from the heat

Are you properly connected at the gas cylinder. I had a problem similar and found that where I thought I had connected the regulator it came off in my hand when I pulled at it. As has previously been said, you need to hold the oven control knob down as there may be air in the system to get clear first. you must then contiue to hold the knob down while the safety cut off thermocouple gets hot

If the van still ahs the original regulator.then that may be your problem.Gas in the bottle is a BI product of oil........."Heavy particles" sometimes remain within the gas (oil in the pipework) change the Reg.it may cure the problem.
