one more thing.

I must admit that the oven in our 1969 looked like it had never been used.....different strokes for different folks...p

Odd question to those with the propane oven - when on a longer bake, say two hours or so, how much heat does it dissipate into the Airstream interior?

.... Still mulling over a smeg,

Ian

We have both oven and convection microwave. The convection microwave gets used at hookups with the occasional long run bake and the extra heat generated is nice in the winter and not that noticeable with windows/ceiling fans in use in the non-summer months. When it is hot and/or humid already, baking drops to nil. When boondocking it is a semi-regular evening device.

I added a marble floor tile to our oven years ago as it made breads cook more uniformly according to the chef. A large egg, bacon, cheese, and potato breakfast casserole dish the wife routinely makes for group outings is much better (per my tastebuds) after the stone addition.

Love our oven...key part of the adventure. The pilot lighting is the hardest step, but as mentioned many times...just practice when you don't have an important deadline! Once you get it, you got it!

I hope to see what you did to your oven at the Falluminum.

Nice to have the oven when boondocking. The new convention ovens don't work well without electric.

we have a 99 Safari so our oven (and trailer) should be about like yours. I don't use the oven much but it is nice to have. Hubby does the lighting of the pilot. I have just found that you have to keep an eye on what you are baking as it can tend to brown on the bottom. I sometimes put an extra cookie sheet under my dish to prevent the browning.

How big of a tile did you use did not think about a floor tile. I have been looking for a pizza stone to put in our oven no luck.

The piece of marble (12x12) I used came from Home Depot. I just grabbed one of the $1.95 a tile specials as color matching was not an issue. It sits in the metal tray above the burner at the bottom of the oven. I used a grinder to cut it to fit as it needs to be about 11x10 to stay put in the depression in the center. It helps stabilize the temperatures and disperse the heat more evenly. The up side is the over cooked bottom Safari Streamer mentioned is no more :-)

We use our oven just about every time we go out on a trip with the AS.

Using the oven right now to dry some shoes that were left outside overnight and were rained on.
