Suburban stove won't simmer

We're new to Rpods and have a used 2011 172.

Is it normal for the Suburban cooktop to be hard to adjust to a simmer?

Ours seem to be either on high or off and seems very sensitive to adjust to a simmer.

The front burner is your hottest burner so select on of the rear burners and turn to low. Remove the knob and look down the center and you can see a slot to adjust the flame height with a small flat blade screw driver...

Just don't turn it too low.. sometimes when you do that and you open and close the oven door to hard it will blow out from draft since the top is not sealed.

Don't beat me up, but lets make sure you're adjusting it correctly.

On most RV stoves you turn the knob counterclockwise from Off to Lite/Hi and then keep turning it counterclockwise to Low. When I first started out with one of these I thought you turned it to Lite/Hi then back clockwise to adjust the flame height.

I have only two burners and neither control has an adjustment under the knob.

Never one to beat up.....my stove control doesn't work that way. It turns CCW to Light/Hi but then back CW to low or off.

Sorry to hear. Looks like you may be stuck with a hot low setting. I did look up the Suburban 2 burner stove (SD2) and it did not have flame height adjustment instructions.
