Get more even heating from your RV oven

Not my idea...just passing along a good tip!

Find a cheap pizza cooking stone and place it at the bottom of your RV gas oven. [Editor's note: Check what location works best in your oven.] It will stop things from getting burnt on the bottom and even out the oven temperature. Make sure to measure your RV oven and buy one the right size.

And then you just place your baking pans directly on the pizza stone? You say bottom of the oven but you must mean on the rack directly above the burner??

What also works is covering the bottom rack with foil.

wife tried to use the oven for the first time this past weekend, We have had the trailer almost a year and never cooked inside. Needless to say it didnt go well, burnt the bottom of the rolls and the tops were still under cooked.
Do you plce it on the bottom of the oven just over the flam portion or under the baking pan.?

See the pics in the link above but we placed it directly on the flame plate (the thin metal plate above the flame) and it has worked very well.

You can also use the top part of a broiler pan
