No biggie, like I said we camp with hookups and then generator can get me to and from. BTW, is that an automatic switchover? Believe I read that somewhere.

Yes, when the gen is running you can plug in to shore power and it will switch over automatically. Just wait a few seconds until you hear the gen sound like there is no more load on it and turn it off.

No oven in ours! Just the 3 burner cook too and that works fine.

KJ, do you have a hood vent to the outside or will you be testing the smoke alarm every time you cook? Reason I ask is my old Winnebago didn't have a hood vent and during the winter trips with everything closed up the alarm would aways go off. I had a roof vent nearby and added a big MAXX 3 speed in or out fan to help.

My wife has cooked a lot on the 3 burner propane stove in our 3051 the last 2 years and has never set off the smoke alarm. It is vented to the interior. I can't imagine what she could cook on the stove or in the microwave that would set it off (other than burning a bag of popcorn).

We have never cooked anything on our stove in our 3051 that it didn't set off our smoke detector. Not once. In fact, we take the battery out before lighting the stove.

The DW doesn't cook, I do all the cooking.

When it's burnt I know it's done!

Wow, I didn't mean to hijack this thread, but someone's smoke alarm is not functioning right. Maybe I need to start a thread titled cooking and smoke alarm. I'm going to go to storage lot and check my alarm today.

Toasters seem to have an affect on smoke detectors too. 😄
