Pilot off of course.

Definitely!! I'm lucky that my original carton/foam is still holding up, and whole thing slides into oven like a glove. A hair bigger it would not fit.

With the 10 pound ham be sure you have enough 'head room' in the oven and if its like mine 350į is about the lowest temperature it can be set at.

Being convinced by the discussion here that a pizza stone would be helpful, can someone tell me the width of the oven? Mine is 5 miles away.

Chris, if it's a Suburban, it's about 14" x 14", but for a stone you wouldn't want to be over 13" or it will block air circulation.

Amazon just sent me a link for this stone, 13". 32 bucks before tax, I noticed it is 0.6 inches thick, better than those almost useless thinner lighter stones, which seem to burn pizza. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...2180_581422790

Just got back from a trip, I did a 10 lb ham in the oven, glazed at end, pineapple rings and cherries, the whole 9 yards. Came out perfect with stone on metal floor above burner, and rack right above that. Ham was on a roast rack above a half sheet pan. My camping companions were pretty amazed.

I'm so ticked, I took 2 great pics on my iphone6. When I went looking for them, they were GONE. Thanks Robo! You'll figure yours out too. Discovering the temp markings on the oven knob helped too!

They should have also been VERY grateful!

They were. Served 'em ham, homemade spšetzle, and green beans with toasted almonds. All on a first night at camp! I cheated and made spšetzle in my home kitchen, just needed to put baking dish in oven. Nice thing was the next two nights dinners were made by the other 2 couples, so we could relax.

Hats off to all of you who cook in your RV oven! We tried, we tried with pizza stone, we gave up. Now, it's just storage.

My wife loves her Breville Smart Oven, we just bring it along. That, plus an Instant Pot, plus the grill, I overeat just as much on the road as I do at home. As you can tell, my wife does all the cooking! I am allowed to operate the grill only LOL!

A lot of us have to use the oven, since we dry camp a lot.

Pizza stone is only part of the solution. A thermoter that can monitor oven temp is also necessary. The rest is up to the operator with good preheat and proper cook time.

Extra electric appliances are OK if on shore power but when boondocking (when all food tastes better ), the oven can be essential.
