RV oven temperature question

It seems that the oven in my 23B has some pretty wide temperature swings when we tried to use it. I had an oven thermometer in it and it appeared to have about a 40 degree swing.

Is there an adjustment to tighten up the differential on the oven thermostat? I would like to make the band much narrower so that I don't have the wild temperature swings.

I looked in the oven manual and didn't find anything that might help.

Dealer told me that once you open the door while baking, the temp goes way down. This tech suggested it be used to store light items instead LOL

Otherwise, some members mentioned in a post a while back that they use some kind of "stone" (?) or baking brick (?) to put under whatever it is they are baking in the oven and it helps. Anyone remember that post?

I put a pizza stone in mine. Seems to help stabilize the temperature.

We also put a 13" pizza stone on the bottom of the oven just over the burner. This keeps things from burning on the bottom. The cooking times are a bit longer than the recipes call for in most cases. We have had good luck with ours, just have to learn to work with it. It seems to me that using an additional thermometer would just be an exercise in frustration.

I have 4 (4x4 in) unglazed ceramic tiles on the bottom plate of the oven, does not block the vent holes, really helps the temperature and the bottom burning of the baking pans. Make sure you do not buy glazed tile, they will crack and break into pieces

Not to mention that some glazing contains lead.

I've seen post of people putting pizza stones on the bottom of the oven and some on the rack. Does it really matter where you put it? If I put on the bottom it will be underneath the flames.

Thanks.
