We tried the oven for the first time...

...And it was a success! These are Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls, nothing too fancy for our first try. I lined the bottom of the oven with tin foil as was discussed elsewhere here to act as a heat spreader -- a lot cheaper and easier than a pizza stone or ceramic tile. I noticed the heat indicator on the oven control knob wasn't too accurate. Good thing I invested in a dollar store oven thermometer. The instructions called for 400 degrees but to get the oven to hold that temperature I had to turn the knob to 475. The cinnamon buns were yummy and the bottoms weren't burnt. By the time I got around to taking a photo, two of them had mysteriously evaporated. Not surprising, the rest didn't last much longer after the photo was taken.

We use our oven as a bread Box but cinnamon buns seem so much better...

I made cinnamon rolls this past weekend too! I put my pan onto a cookie sheet (yes I found one small enough to fit in the RV oven) and just cook them longer than the time on the package.

I've burnt many a good biscuit and cinnamon role in our oven! Seems to be a really good place to make charcoal.

Just kidding. I've managed to cook a few things, but have to keep the temps low in mine to avoid burning the bottoms. Have to get a piece of tile to put in there as a heat spreader I suppose. Never think of that when I'm at the big box store though...

I haven't looked at my new 5th Wheel RV oven. But in my old one (and in many home ovens) there is an adjustment screw behind the oven temperature knob. You do need an oven themometer to set it - but if you find your oven too hot or too cold you might look for and play with that adjustment screw.

If you don't have an oven thermometer but you keep a laser thermometer to check your tires and hubs I'll bet that would work as well.

Now you're part of an elite few who have actually used the oven. Putting a pizza stone or tile in the oven helps even out the temperature. An oven thermometer is a must. Just a little trick i learned from cruising in a sailboat. It evens out the temperature. Those cinnamon rolls look really really good as my coffee is perking and the cabin is filled with the wonderful aroma of good coffee.

We picked up a really thick piece of ceramic tile and had it cut to fit. HD will cut one for free . Place it above the burner and it does a great job evening out the heat. Now it did crack a few times in, but still works great. We make dinner rolls, pizza, and even cookies. Not sure I would do a roast or something that takes several hours to cook.

My oven got used on the first camping trip.

Even replaced the stove with a range in my last TT.

Won't go into the wilderness without one.

Them baked goods got no shelf-life at all!
