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.

Ongoing hotbox issue...

The pizza stone/tile solutions have been around forever, it seems. You'd think that by now, the manufacturers would have addressed the heat issue and fixed the problem...Jeez, it's not rocket science, oven makers! Do you guys even care?! Do you not read the feedback here and in other forums submitted by your customers?

Just FYI- we have no official relationship with FR or any of the product manufacturers. A few factory reps hang out from time to time, but that's on their own time.

If you want your feedback heard, I'd suggest going directly to the manufacturer.

In a residential type oven, there is a pretty good distance between the burner and the rack when it is in the center position. That allows the heat to spread out and reduce hot spots.

The RV oven is much smaller, so the rack is much closer to the burner. Thyere may not be a practical design solution. We are probably condemned to using the pizza stones forever.

Just to drive home a point about safety...Always, always have your match, lighter or piece of pasta lit and next to the pilot in the oven BEFORE turning on the gas...

Our unit didn't come with an oven. We actually never noticed it until we had purchased the camper and were loading it up. :/ We have been using our grill as an oven. Homemade pizza, peach cobbler, muffins have all turned out well. We bought a cheap oven thermometer for the grill. Happy baking.

Unglazed tiles are the way to go. Typically our home depot only has one kind that you can get. What's then great about those is that you can use them as a pizza stone. Reheated pizza is the BEST on those tiles when they are nice and hot.

I don't have an oven - use a toaster oven

But mom swears by a cheap dollar store pan filled with an inch or so of water on the bottom of her oven helps cooks evenly in her camper oven.
