This has allowed us to bake biscuits and other breakfast goodies without burning the
bottoms at all.
You use the air bake cookie sheet AND the pizza stone now? Or just the air bake cookie sheet?

In our 27 years of camping, we have used our oven about 3 times. We have two toaster ovens that we use. We do plug them into the pole separately, tho. But, we don't use our propane and doesn't heat up the camper...we camp mainly in FL and avoid excessive heat in the camper whenever we can.

I have a silly question. In the stove is the very bottom then the burner and then 1 rack. Where do you put the stone?

Our stove has 2 racks in it. We placed a square pizza stone on the lower rack and have had great success using it. My wife bakes everything under the sun in our oven and we love it. My only gripe is no electric ignition for lighting. Best of luck.

Just the air bake cookie sheet. We found one that just fits perfectly.
And a bright aluminum round cake pan on top.
Last 2 times we baked those sweet breakfast rolls they were perfectly
golden brown on top and bottom!
This after years of pizza stone and bright pan but still getting very dark
brown on the bottom of the rolls or biscuits.

Just make sure that you have about 1" or more opening around the edges. Many RV ovens are about 15-16" wide so a 13" stone or separate unglazed tiles works best to allow heated air to circulate.

I fully agree with Richp....the unglazed tiles that are about 5 inches square in dimension from The Home Depot. They've worked very well for heat distribution and they eliminated the hot spot in the oven floor above the burner. Cheap too.

Yard sale stone

Picked a round one at a yard sale, hasn't cracked yet. Evens the heat out well enough.

We use a round pizza stone and have not had any issues with it cracking during use, or from getting bounced around while traveling. Of course now that I've made that bold statement, it will be a pile of crumbs next time I check.
All kidding aside, I think any of these methods will help to diffuse the heat from the oven's burner which is the ultimate goal.

Used a pizza stone and like others, it cracked the first time we used it. Will buy unglazed tile next time.
