The room air blower should have no effect on the pilot unless there is a crack in the heat exchanger. Do you notice a change in the pattern of the main burner flame when the blower turns on? If so, you have major issues. If not, it could be a dirty pilot orifice or a weak thermocouple.

When a pilot lite habitually goes out the thermocople has failed. The are pretty cheap. If you remove yours and go to a local applicane parts center they can provide you with one the same lenght as your current one for a much cheaper price than a plumbing and heating source. In the process of changing the thermocouple when you disconnect it from the gas control valve take a Q-tip and clean the mating area as best you can. You can try cleaning that mating area before changing the thermocouple first. You might just get lucky and not have to buy a new one.
This is not a hard task. It is a bit tedious to get to the area near the flame head but I am pretty sure you can do this. Just make sure the new thermocople is positioned like the one you removed.
There is a very very remote possibility that the gas control itself is failing but I doubt it. You still would have to change the thermocouple first in order to troubleshoot.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Remove your pilot assembly and remove the aluminum gas line going to it. Be careful when you take this off because there is an orifice inside of it that may or may not fall out. If it don`t fall out remove it. In the top of are a couple really small holes. Make sure they are clean. Also again clean the pilot hood of all debris. Reassemble everything and it should work fine. If not buy a replacement pilot assembly because I have had some that i couldn`t get clean enough not matter what I tried. Doesn`t happen often but does happen. New assembly always fixes it but a good cleaning usually does it.
