Different oven

I cooked in the oven for the first time in my 36CKTS. I have the 3 burner oven. Is there a better one I could buy? That thing puts out SOOOOO much heat, it overpowers the air conditioning. This is my first RV so not sure if all RV ovens are like that.

Make sure you turn on the exhaust fan on the vent hood. That pulls a lot of heat out. You will be surprised at the difference.

But be sure to open the outside flap.

It's on the outside behind the range exhaust hood. It looks something like this

There are probably two clips that hold the flap in place while travelling that you have to move so the flap will open when you turn the exhaust hood fan on. Don't forget to position the two clips over the flap before you get on the road.

Different oven

There is no outside vent on a 36ckts. The microwave vent into the room. The oven sucks. The wife has complained a lot. She read the placing some glazed fire tiles in the bottom helps distribute the heat and this will help with a more even heat.

Fabulous Range Hood Upgrade Kit

Quieter and pulls more air out.

You really want unglazed tile such as quarry tile. Lead and other nasty things are sometimes used in the glazing process. They are sometimes hard to find at the big box home improvement stores, especially the large tiles.

Thanks.. We haven't tried anything yet. We just know that all the heat is straight up the middle. It burns stuff that wouldn't burn in a normal oven.

I put a square baking stone in mine. Works great. It did crack on first use. But still works like a charm
