If you have a service manual it has the adjustment procedure for the oven. Ours was off +/-25 degrees before adjustment.

That's about how far mine was off. After adjustment, it now works perfectly.

Confession.

Hi, I would not want to be without an oven and I glad our trailer model came with all three. [cook top, Oven, & Micro-wave] But I will admit that in five years of ownership, we only used our oven once. We pre-cook our food at home and re-heat it on the road. [saves time] Actually we only use our home oven a few times a year. If I baked cookies, I would eat them all, and that could be a problem. I think if there were more than just the two of us, we would use the oven more.

The ovens in the newer trailers are very difficult to light. You cannot have any of the burners on the top lit. You have to sit on the floor, shine a flashlight in at the pilot which is close to the back, use a long wooden match, and have an assistant (or be a lot more flexible than me) hold down the oven valve on the front of the stove until the thermocouple is hot enough for the pilot to stay on. I've tried those butane lighters, but a match works better. After 2 years we are starting to master the damn thing and get it lit within a minute (plus time for all preparations).

It was designed by idiots who apparently have done some design work on Airstreams.

I think I want an oven.. we just have the cooktop. Im going to call the mothership and ask them if there are any instructions to do the install.

I will put it on my wish list.

Boy, you're not kidding. But we still contort as needed, and use it frequently for "short baking" and warming up dishes prepared at home. In fact I think we use the oven almost every time we camp. I like it.

That sounds like you are on your way to becoming a statistic. The furnace does not vent combustion products into the trailer. The oven/Cooktop does.

I had my cooktop and Microwave (which I never used) removed and had an Cooktop/Oven installed. I use my oven all the time. You do have to light the pilot not the thermocouple or temp sensor as some one out there I know has tried.

Hi, Crusty. I hope you meant that you would cook something in the oven to help warm up your trailer, but not use it as a heater; Otherwise I have to agree with thecatsandi. Not safe at all.

I just found this thread, I wrote in some time ago to the forum after I got home from the hospital because my propane alarm went off when I turned on the oven, I think. I thought it was fixed, but it isn't. The alarm went off again and I am afraid to turn anything on because I don't want to blow myself and the trailer to "the next dimension."

I think someone in Ojai said they would take a look at it and could probably fix it, but now I can't remember who told me.

I am having so much trouble with my memory ever since the surgery because something happened and they said I went into a coma. I thought I was was dying, but I didn't. I am home now.

If someone can figure out who might have said they would fix this, can you let me know? I will write myself a note to check the forum for the answer.....

Hopefully we figure this out soon since it is really cold here and I know I would like to turn on the heater in my trailer to keep warm.

Thank you so much,
Carol
