Replacement

My wife is very dissatisfied with the quality of the installed stove and oven in our Int'l 23/ 2010. The grill keeps popping out, the cover bends and its screws fall out; the paint has bubbled and cooked off the grill...

She thinks a cooktop (Force 10 3 burner) would be enough and that there is no need for an oven. The freed up space would be better used by installing a drawer or two.

Not wanting to reinvent the wheel, I throw this out for your comments- pro or con!

Thanks

A couple of thoughts here... We live very nicely without an oven in our Bambi and my wife Dorsey is a cook too!

It all depends on what compromise you are willing to make.

The second thought is that our experience with Force 10 is nothing but positive. Most people dont know it but you can request/order their products in a polished stainless finish if you want a gaudier appearance. We did that on our sailboat...Nice products!

I think your issue is unbalanced running gear and/or bad rubber rods in the axles.

Or, perhaps you may be using a super duty tow vehicle and/or excessive rated hitch bars.

I doubt that the problem happens until you tow the trailer.

Keep in mind, the trailer must have a soft ride, and so do most of the appliances.
