Found interesting fact about the stove. Probably everyone but me and DW know this.

While working on our stove in the camper I just found out that the front burner is hotter than the 2 rear burners. Front is 9000 BTU and each of the 2 rear ones are 6500 BTU.. Another missing piece of info at the PDI. Now we know where to boil the spaghetti water.

Actually this is most likely in the stove manual but who reads those things?

Who else didn't know that?

Never checked the manual, but the front burner does have a slightly larger flame, or at least it does on ours.

Never thought about it, but it makes sense, I think. Less chance of a fire ?? How did you determine the BTU ? Helpful bit of info we will have to put that on the RV test.

We knew that so we use a pasta boat in the microwave to cook our noodles.

I was pulling the unit out to try and repair the oven door which was hit hard and way out of wack. (BTW, 'wack' is an official term) I took the cover off of the burner area and right there on the tag it said front burner 9,000 BTU and back burners 6500 BTU.

BTW. Who knows how to take off the oven door? Can't find a bit on info on line.

Great info, outstanding that they actually labeled a part with useful info, That should eliminate any confusion." WACK "without a doubt an official term at least it is here in the south.

I used Adobe Acrobat Pro to scan all of my manuals into a searchable PDF file so I could easily access them with the iPhone or iPad.

Still haven't got around to reading them.
