The new Dometic SMEV CU434 stove/oven operation

Has anyone used this new stainless steel oven and was the temperature fairly even once up to temperature? The prior stoves were very erratic in their temperature control.

I have not, and I hope this isn't considered hijacking, but I will say when I pulled the top grates off for cleaning (THE FIRST TIME!!!) all the rubber grommets pulled out with the grates. Most were torn vertically and/or came apart. Seriously?!? I assume with proper lubrication they will stay seated, but maybe just a design flaw them being to small/thin. Having trouble finding exact replacements in the US. I see some sold in the EU for crazy prices. I assume I'll need to MacGyver an alternate solution.

Oven hotter in the back so you have to turn things around to cook evenly. Yes the rubber grommets break no matter how hard you try to not break them. Have not come up with a fix but does not cause any problems with cooking or cleaning yet

Mine did the same thing - and I don't have the SMEV Dometic - Please don't tell on me but I had an old rubber floor mat that was badly worn - a one inch square with a hole drilled in the center just big enough for the grate now rests on top of the stovetop. Went to my local camping supply place and they didn't know what I wanted until I asked for "rubber stove ***holes" and what they sold me is still sitting in the kitchen drawer because it looks flimsy. I did keep an extra 3 squares of the floor mat, and the drill is charged. Duh.
