Can I ask about the pizza stone in the oven to even out heat? Our new trailer is at the dealer for warranty work so I can't see in the oven right now. Do I place it on the bottom? Any suggestions as to where to buy a reasonable one?

We use ours periodically, kids like pancake bits. Make pancake batter as usual. Pour into greased muffin pan, add berries to liking, maybe a little chocolate chips, bake 350-375 about 15 minutes. Note, the batter does not brown. Easy and fairly clean on a rainny/stormy morning.

I have never had any luck even lighting the pilot in my oven. Just doesn't seem like a good idea to stick your head in an oven, turn on gas, light match wait for ignition.

An air bake cookie pan on lower shelf also helps evenly distribute the heat,and is lighter and is not breakable

I've not read all the thread so I may have missed the use I used to make of my oven when I had one in a previous rig. For those of us who use our RV's in cold country, especially when fishing/hunting - I'd put a foil-wrapped, pre-seasoned beef or pork roast in an aluminum roasting pan in the oven, set oven at @ 250, go away fishing or hunting for 4 - 6 hours and return to a warm, wonderfully smelling environment. And, for the most part, dinner was ready.

Despite its shortcomings, an oven was a mandatory feature when we were shopping for a TT. Our popup didn't have one, but my brother-in-law's does, and it was used for just about every meal, if not for cooking something then for reheating something that was precooked at home.

As far as campfire cooking, for me, it looks more fun than it actually is. I didn't buy a $20,000 TT so that I can still cook like we did in Scouts. We are very lacking in hardwood in the west, mostly just fast burning pine, which isn't the best heat source for cooking. And too often there are burn restrictions in the Rocky Mountain region that prohibit open fires of any kind. There are areas which will at times even prohibit charcoal grills.

I'll use a campfire when it's allowed for ambiance, and for s'mores and weenie roasts, maybe toss a couple of foil wrapped potatoes in the coals to bake. Anything more complex than that goes on the grill or stove.
