Wedgewood stoves are commonly found in RVs.

If you have a Wedgewood oven by Atwood, it is important to know how to light the pilot. Wedgewood ovens are commonly found in boats and RVs, and the pilot lights for the ovens need to be manually lit whenever the gas supply is interrupted. The pilot light on a Wedgewood stove is always on the right-hand side of the stove burner, underneath the broiler pan. In order to light the pilot, you need to know how to correctly position the stove knobs.
