Our Sylvania convetion oven that came with our new 25' rd fb safarai, has been replaced once and is in need of replacing again(warranty)After a day or so of use the keypad starts beeping and becomes locked up? The light is on but nobody home. So after this last trip of 2 weeks, it stopped again, we ended up picking up a $50. microwave at Wal-Mart. It works fine, but no baking or browning......

We did not have the oven in our 75 Sovereign, long gone. So used that space for the Sharpe Convection, microwave, broiler, toaster etc. Works Great..if I have the generator along. If no generator, we have a Coleman Camp Stove oven that sits on the stove, or outside on a portable gas stove. Works OK, Also have the Coleman Drip
Coffee Maker used the same way. 90% of our camping is DRY CAMPING

Do these MW/convection ovens "toast"? Or put another way, broil from top and bottom?

Our Sharp has several features that include toasting, and baking,
and about anything else a home electric oven has plus microwave. It has bounced around in our trailer for 3 years now and works fine.

I'm hooked up to shore power most of the time and have 50A service in my Airstream. But that being said I love the Sharp micro/convec oven. I have baked frozen pizza in it, roasted whole chickens in it, toasted bagels. I give it a huge thumbs up.

Do you have to buy a convection microwave made for RV use? Would that change the power requirements? Would like to know which brands are better for the Airstream. I see a lot of people have Sharp brand.

that's because a/s USED these for years as stock offerings...

and exact replacements were (might still be) available at wallyworld.

these are STANDARD household units, with NOTHING special for rv use.

the model numbers, owners/install guide and so on are included in the links below...
________

in general they SIT on a shelf and PLUG into a standard outlet...

and are loosely held secure with a framing kit/face plate.
________

a convection oven is SIMPLY a gas or electric oven with a fan.

the fan circulates the heat and shortens cooking times.

this is easily combined with a micro/wave zapper thing.

the 2 'types' of cooking can be used individually (normal baking/broiling vs micro')

OR combined various wayz via the magic buttons (thaw, bake, micro, grill, brown)

it is actually the CONTROLS that intimidate or mystify most folks...

just think of it as your typical...

thermonuclear dutch oven lazy susan combined with a fan, alarm clock and microwave broadcast tower...

in an easy to use package even barbie would love

My wife and I can now use it without guessing what the panel was "asking".
Could you post the contact for the gentleman that repairs the display???

Thanks, I see you did that.
