There's an oven in my RV?

Hell I thought that was storage for pots and pans!

Seriously, I've yet to use our oven. DH fired it up a couple of times when we first got it just to make sure it works.

I don't like all that turn the knob, listen for click stuff. Scares me.

Friends we camp with have never used their oven. She bought a counter top oven and uses it for *every* thing she wants to bake.

Oh my gosh that was funny!! I hated to even try to light the oven by myself at first. If it took me more than two attempts to light it, I would quit....then call my DH to light it. He would get it the first attempt! ( I was scared I would blow us up!). I finally learned how, but it is a bit nerve racking having to bend down, look that thing straight on, as I stick the lighter in there....uggggh!!

The RV show this year, I noticed more trailers/RV do not have ovens in them. I asked why and the salesman said people did not want them as they never used them. I use mine all the time - warm cinnabuns in the am. Guess it is now becoming an upgrade it you want an oven.

Seems like there could have been a better design on the lighting mechanism. I just about have to stand on my head to light the dang thing. Might have to get one of those counter top ovens when I get to be an old gal

I've noticed that too, but the absence of an oven would be a deal-breaker for us.

Lighting my oven in the RV is a pain too. But I'd rather have to get down on my knees and light it because it makes me look to see that everything is doing what it's supposed to be doing before I close the door.

We have a gas oven we never use. The microwave/convection oven never burns the biscuits.

If I did that with our oven, the "click" I heard would be the windows blowing out. Our oven still needs a LONG match.
