Don't forget the Carbon Monoxide detector!

I value our carbon monoxide detector, and particularly when using the oven. Even with the stove vent extractor fan running, the digital detector shows a positive reading for carbon monoxide. (Usually about 20 ppm, where the danger level on the detector is stated as about 100 ppm, IIRC)Long term members of this forum will know that I do go on about this, and can bore for England on the subject, but I have good reason.
Nick.

This weekend 6 trailers gathered near Catawissa Pa at Lake Glory campground. I thought it being friday,and there were lots of kids, that we should have a pizza party. We made 6 pizzas using Trader Joes bread dough. The pizzas were the best ever. Everyone was raving about how good they were. The ovens of a 1958, a 1961, and a 1962 did all the baking. Not a single slice remained. We have baked potatoes, pies, cookies, birthday cake of a nine year olds surprise birthday party. I think anything is possible in the oven. The only problem I have had is that if you shut the door too fast, it will blow out the flame. I discovered this the hard way and had the gas ignite when I opened the door and bent over to look at the burner. The gas ignited from the burners going above. My eye lashes and eyebrows are now growing back. Scared me a great deal, but the meal was still served.
I look at my trailer as my second home. I cook in her just like I do at home. the best thing about cooking in the Airstream is there are usually neighbors to share the meal with. Nine of us ate breakfast two mornings in a row, while seated at a table in Rob Bakers Sovereign of the road. I find the meals shared this way to be very tasty and it also seems like the right way to do it.
On a note we wanted to use the oven in the new 2008 that was there, but it did not have an oven.

If anyone has trouble with things burning on the bottom when using the oven, put an unglazed ceramic tile on top of the burner guard. It will absorb and spread around the heat to make things brown more evenly.

Ditto Frank

When we bought our first SOB the smiling salesman said..."oh most people that go camping eat out and basically use the oven for extra storage." Not us. Being that we eat pretty healthy my lovely wife cooks three squares a day and that means when we're camping too! We find the gas oven in the '87 as well as the convection / microwave in the '06 work perfectly. Though they do take a little getting used to, at least so I am told. My cooking expertise is on the outside grill. The most my wife lets me do in the kitchen is the dishes.
