Rivet The Vultures Are Coming out of the Woodwork!!!

Hi Sue,

Ganglin inspired me. I could use a shelf (wire rack?) for mine. I only have one and a second would be nice to have another.

I had started this post and the it hit me. “Gee, Vaughan, what about the one in the other trailer. You know, the one in the oven that doesn’t work.” Up and down both ice slicked steps and presto, a second shelf. A little rusty, but serviceable, yes? Dang! The door won’t close. It’s 16 5/8” deep and the one that fits the oven in the Excella is 15¼”.

Would certainly be glad to pay for shipping if and or when you decide something.

Oh, and a public thanks to Ganglin for all his help via PMs on my oven problems in the Excella.

Rivet Pizza Stone Update

Hi Edee,

I found a pizza stone that I liked online at American METALCRAFT’s website at Pizza Supplies pizza stones baking stone for pizzerias pizza parlor restaurants. It is the 15” x 12” Rectangle one that lists for $12.00. My oven is 16¾” wide and 17” deep, so that leaves plenty of room for circulation. The rounded corners also will help. The only problem was that I could not locate one online, only the 16” x 14” version.

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock closed early today due to freezing rain, giving me a chance to drop in to my favorite restaurant supply. They had them in stock for $8.64. Restaurant supply stores are a great resource. Professional equipment is durable and usually much less expensive than the designer stuff.

I’ll probably try out the stone with canned biscuits tomorrow morning.

I have an older smaller GE microwave oven and it just fits (barely) within my 67 Overlander's Magic Chef Oven cavity. So I have the ability to use the microwave and MC...just not at the same time of course...and the microwave is out of sight and out of the way most of the time.

I'm hoping the MC rack will fit in the Wedgie - yes, 2 would be nice. How about bending the extra 1 3/8" to fit? I may use that idea myself if necessary and if it would work.

Hi Sue,

I may do that. Let us know how you like the Wedgie.

It'll take a little time before I can try out the Wedgie. The cut opening is a bit generous so I'll be checking to see if there is a trim kit for the install. Wish us luck on all this - we need it as Mr. & Mrs. DIY Handyfixit don't always live here !!! In that case it's off to the rv center.

Sue,

Hope the cold is better. No one will ever say about me that I didn't jump on an opportunity when it appeared. Are you sure your old one is toast? If you want to keep it you may try adjusting it first before you trash it. Mine was out 60 degrees to start - it's now +/- 2 degrees.

As for Moraine - I'd love to but.... I've spent over a year working on the 71 and not done yet - that's on a trailer that was fully towable when I bought her. Since I've only towed it about 100 miles - think it's best to spend the late summer here in central Ohio getting used to her. Will send you a PM about the knobs in case you decide to trash the old one. Appreciate it....

You could check with Philip on the install of a Wedgewood. It was smaller than the original and he and the dealer got it in wonderfully! I LOVE it!!!

Using the Gas Oven

We don't really use the oven much during the hot summer months in Texas, but during the winter when we camp, I usually make a casserole and freeze it in a small glass pyrex and stick it in the fridge before we leave. It takes a day or two for it to thaw out. Microwaves are great for a lot of things, but not for everything and nothing is better during the winter than letting the gas oven assist in keeping the coach nice warm, and smelling good. I've made box cake mixes, but I've never tried cookies. Pilot lighting is a bit of an ordeal to me, but stubborn persistence usually accomplishes alot.

We use the oven all the time. We even cooked Thanksgiving Dinner in ours for 5 people...a 10lb turkey fit in the oven just fine. We also make pizzas, corn bread, all kinds of things. We enjoy camping without hookups in our '06 Bambi 19'.
