New Oven

Hi there..Just bought a n 08 27 ft Classic and have not used the oven..The coach is in winter storage so I can't play with the stove for a while..I have heard that the oven will burn extreamly hot so that cooking normaly is impossable..Any truth to this?? Thanks

Cap,

I have no idea about the temperature, but if you are concerned purchase an oven thermometer at the grocery store and monitor the temperature.

Thanks Bill..Do you find that the coach oven is similar to your stove at home?

We have found that the oven in each trailer works just fine. One is an RV style Magic Chef and the other is an apartment type stove.

We use the oven all the time in all the trailers we have had. Just like at home except smaller. There will be some heat exhausted out and in a closed environment you will be more aware than at home, particularly in hot weather. In cool weather cooking a meal does double duty

Ours seems to run about 25 degrees cooler than the thermostat - based on an oven thermometer. Some have recommended using a pizza stone or ceramic tile to even the heat. The trailer "inherited" a pampered chef pizza stone that was not being used in our house. The oven cooks pretty well, overall.

Dennis,

Rather that use an expensive pizza stone, I purchased a box of 6" unglazed quarry tiles from the tile store and use them in both the home oven and both trailer ovens. If one tile breaks it is easy to replace the broken one rather that the entire stone.
