Probably a lower oven temperature, it may be heating hotter than the dial says. Crank it down about 25 degrees. And maybe move the rack one notch higher.

Thanks for cleaning it!

Thanks for cleaning that unsightly mess. Really, it looks great and if you hadn't cleaned it I would never have come across the AS documentation link.

There's some great stuff there! Mrs Safari64 says I've already spent 3+ hours going through it.

Oh, and 18 degrees?!? Warm spell, eh? It will have to warm up from -23F before I can clean mine.

What are you going to bake first?

Thanks for the info

Thumbs up

DW tip after I burnt the cr@p out of her special anniversary frozen toll house treats...don't put 'em on the cookie sheet frozen, don't preheat the oven, put a second sheet on the rack below and keep an eye on the damn things. Pass the Chip's Ahoy.

I use mine all the time. And, after perusing this thread, I finally understand how to correctly broil something in it.

The chief use of our oven is to make garlic bread. That alone makes it worth while. Note this is not baking bread, but making garlic bread.

What else is nice, it works when boondocking and there are other uses for it.

Love the oven, cooktop, freezer and frig! I like to do prep at home before a trip and have fun meals while away.

I only use ours in the winter time. The feeble '69 air conditioner just can't keep up in the summer when you add the heat from the oven to the mix. Honestly, if it weren't for that dilemma, I'd ditch the microwave and stay exclusively with the cooktop and oven. A microwave, to me, is there just to speed up the process. I try to never get in a hurry for any reason when I'm camping. That's the whole point!

how many people actually use thier oven

I would like to use my oven but I can not get an even heat control. If you are going to replace your oven and it works I would love to have the control from it. My oven came out of a 1973 airstream. It has the word Airstream on the control panel and it is a magic chief, If is mounted in the wall between the kitchen and the bedroom. It is not part of the cook top.

We use ours every on trip. Sometimes to make cookies, other times like at Thanksgiving & made a ham in it. On another day when it was raining and we couldn't grill, we made oven BBQ chicken. I wouldn't want to be without it. Ours is the in the wall type like "dghaas" mentioned.


Happy Trailering !
