Not sure what you mean -- all three of the burners are adjustable on my 2006 Safari.

As a side note -- we just bought a portable induction cooktop -- it was around $100, and boils water FAST, and awesome for outside use -- not impacted by wind.

Are you sure? Unless the adjustment affects all, easy to test, close it and get yellow flame, open until it is blue.

Hey Shane - I know exactly what you mean. Our current range in our SOB trailer has 3 burners. Only one of them is adjustable with the knob. The other two are either on or off. You can play with them a bit to turn the flame down, but it gets pretty touchy. Why is it like that? I have no idea. Cheaper version of the stove I guess. Seems silly to me, and something I will look to avoid when we buy a new range for Little Girl.

Yep only the front center is adjustable. Never thought to look at that before buying. I wonder if I can add an adjustment to the other two.

Still makes no sense.

it may be a high output burner.

I spoke to an airstream dealer a couple of weeks ago and he told me that the 3 burner has one high output burner so the water will heat faster on that one versus 3 burners that only will run with low-med output.

No Offense, but I do have a Bridge for sale in Arizona with a ocean view for anyone who buys that comment from the salesman.

Whats that quote?......"Don't change anything just improve it"

Not in this case.

From the Magic Chef Website...

Gas cooktops and oven ranges from Magic Chef give the convenience and high performance of a traditional kitchen stove.

Each features a 9100 btu superburner and two 6500 btu rear burners. Tru-Seal burners keep spills from getting under the cooktop (Sealed Ranges only). Deep-well Spill Catcher top, scuff-resistant steel surface and easy-to-read control panel. Quiet Ride Design means rattle-free travel. Ovens feature built-in broiler and multi-position racks.

I still call BS. Superburner my butt. I have a gas stovetop in my home and it's less in the stream. There is no reason to not have 3 adjustable outputs. IMO.

Anyway the bridge is not sold , yet.....

Hmmm. The gas range in our home also have one higher-output burner...they are all adjustable but one is a super burner. Must be the same concept in the AS.... We use all three burners in the AS with no problems...everything gets cooked.

Shane,

I will try to answer your question. NO, it is not normal for only one burner to be adjustable. NO, NO, NO.

The high output is true even though "high" output is only by comparison. One of the three, the front one usually, does have an higher output than the back two. But that has nothing to do with how you adjust your burners. I would have them check it out. Something is wrong with the valves.

Dick

No, no, no.... Shane is dead on accurate in that he has two burners that are not adjustable. It's a cheaper version of a stove top, just like we have in our StarStream. I'm with Shane - it makes no sense, but that's the way it is. High output, regular output, whatever, it makes no sense to have burners that only have a on/off valve. The only option is to replace the stove top or the valves as I see it. If we used all 3 burners more often, and we didn't have Little Girl as our current money sucking project , I'd replace the two valves on my stove.

Chris

____________

the international comes with 1 of several model cooktop/ovens depending on trailer SIZE and range only/full oven configurations.

ALL of the operations are covered in the owners PACKET (not the manual) with a specific manual directly from the manufacturer...

one of 2 companies (maytag/magic chef or seaward products)
____________

these are NEW trailers folks, your old stuff isn't exactly the same.

generally...

the front/center burner has a "simmer" feature so it can be turned way way down without going OUT...

the other 2 burners (back/sides) are also adjustable, but NOT down to same tiny flame degree...

(this has to do with a linear adjustment valve vs something else)

and the adjustment is the OPPOSITE direction on the knob for the back burners...
____________

or pile some sticks outside and cook the old fashion way...

cheers

2air, Thank-you you are correct, they all three are adjustable, but barely. I mean the rear burners are VERRRRRY sensitive. No indicators on the buttons at all but you can "tweak" them and lower the flame.

I stand corrected.

Again, Thanks,
Shane
