As far as the oven goes, the small size will cause this running hot issue. Most campers that use the oven a lot use a pizza stone under whatever they bake and then set the temp about 25 degrees lower. The stone helps even out the rise and fall of the temps as the burner goes on and off.

I don't buy for a second the hot burning issue being caused by the small oven size. Our oven - which by the way is big enough for a half sheet pan - I use one - maintains the correct temperature.

First I'd suggest investing in an oven thermometer (they are not terribly expensive and quite useful at home too!)

Thermostats on ovens are adjustable - I do not know the procedure for our RV ovens - or mine at home but if you have an oven thermometer you can figure out how "off" you actually are and make adjustments acordingly. For example if you set the oven for 350 (good for most things) and the thermometer reads 375 - then turn the knob down 25 degrees.

We bake in the oven frequently - breads, rolls, cakes, popovers and even a blueberry pie entered into a contest (my cousin's home oven wasn't big enough for the entries and so one was baked out in our RV). The RV baked pie had the most evenly brown crust of the bunch.
