Certainly, if your refer (what we call a fridge when it's in an Airtream) is the original one, it was only designed to work on LP gas or 120V.

Some of the newer models of refers are also 12V, but the power required to run a refer on 12VDC for very long would require a ton of batteries, IMHO.

So, you are now just as sophisticated as your friends!

Cornbread in the oven, chili on the stove top. That's how these Oregonians deal with a rainy cold campsite.

We got the new FC20 because it has the gas oven.

Me! Love my oven. I like to make cinnamon rolls for my family Saturday mornings.

We replaced the failed micro in our new-to-us AS with a Samsung combo convection/radiant-element/microwave. It nukes, bakes, browns, roasts, and all that... but the truth is that the BEST biscuits, cobblers, cinnamon-rolls, roasts, etc.... come from the DUTCH OVEN... that my 87 year-old mother's grandmother used! (My Great GrandMaw Tackett!)

I would be especially curious about baking biscuits in a Dutch Oven. Did your great-grandmother have a wood stove maybe?

Thanks,

Peter

I use my oven on every trip. Couldn't imagine not having it.

We recently upgraded from a 19' to a 27' so now have a microwave. I think I've used it once - just to see if it works.

Would happily give up the microwave, but would never give up the propane oven.

Lighting is pretty easy once you bleed the line by first turning on a burner for a sec.

BTW - does anyone actually leave the pilot on while they're in the trailer? I always just re-light it.

We leave the pilot on if we are camping for a few days and it's cold enough that we will be using the oven, otherwise, no.

I have not read the previous 485 comments but here is an oven tip that may make your dinner bell ring louder. We see & often at times stop at Cracker Barrels as we travel. He's the scenario, it's 4pm you're getting close to your destination but not ready for dinner but don't want to cook either & then you see that Cracker B sign. Pull in take short break go in order your dinners(s) to go, put them in the AS oven including the CB shopping bag they're in (oven off). At camp set up, remove from bag turn oven on the lowest setting for an hour or so and you got a hot delicious dinner ready at 6:30 or 7PM, not a microwave heated up TV dinner. We love our oven for its versatility.

I've done both "drop" biscuits and "cut" biscuits in the Dutch Oven using wood coals or charcoal. Grandmaw even baked yeast-rolls in it.
I've also made biscuits with nothing more than an aluminum-foil "bakers" tent facing the open-end toward the fire while I fried the bacon and eggs. (From where do you think the term "baker tent" was derived? :wink:

Ours doesn't stay on after we turn off the oven. Saves propane, safer.

Mine stays on. Old oven, 73 vintage. I leave it on and make yoghurt in the oven, or raise yeast bread. Just the right temp with the pilot on.

So far, we use our oven mainly to cook pizzas. Last trip, we also heated a big pan of homemade mac & cheese for another lady that was in our camping group. I'm so glad the oven is still in great shape.

I turn off the pilot after use. Good idea to leave it on for bread and yogurt, though. I bet it would be good for keifer, too!
