New Suggestions from an Old MOCer......


Now that we are officially looking around at new 5th wheels to buy within the next 12 months, I'd like to suggest the following:

1) Entry door area. Make the screen door a "storm door" with clear or shaded panels that can be moved up/down or removed.

2) Rolled edge counters. To catch liquids from spilling on the counters and down onto the floor.

3) Still waiting for an oven that is way higher up on the wall so I can light it easier. My knees will thank you. So will the husband as I make him light it for me every time as we don't like to keep the pilot light on.


My other half has suggestions but I'll let him add those in another post.

I'll be back with more.

Here is a easy solution to light your oven. Several of us have done this and it works great and cost under $50.00 for parts.

Yes, nailbender, but wouldn't it be nice if Keystone bought ranges with that feature already in there or at least, in Doug & Margee's next rig?

I currently go through the contortionism but we don't go out very often so it's rare, but in this day and age with electronic ignition being so prevalent you'd think the RV range/oven suppliers would have already done this by now.

Margee, We have never lit the oven in our Big Sky... The oven in the microwave is so much better then what they used to have that I always use that..Between the micro/confection and 1/2 time the only thing I missed was grill or brown. I solved that with the Bar B Q grill and a small toaster oven to make pizza in. The oven is a great storage place for my cookware and bread..

We never used our oven in our previous travel trailer either - in seven years. I would love to see an oven delete option where they can put a bank of drawers in place of the oven.

Am I the ONLY gal that uses her oven, to bake?? OK, not that often, but, since I have an old rig I did not get any fancy smancy convection oven thingy.

Yea, I use the gas oven for storage, but, I also use it to bake,

Come to the Fall Rally and you can try some of my peanut butter cookies that will be baked IN my oven!

We made the above posted addition to our oven so that we can light it by pushing a button.

We use the oven for certain foods when we want to get a nice crispy brown on it, like a turkey breast, etc.

Mostly we use the BBQ, Convection Oven, Pressure Cooker and Slow Cooker, in that order (I do the cooking).

I use our oven all the time. Like others, I use it for baking and for storage. I use the microwave/half-time oven, too, but some things I cook are best done by only an oven, in my opinion.

We used our oven quite frequently also, nothing like a crispy oven baked chicken, of a nice hunk of salmon cooked in sweet bourbon sauce, or any other baked goods. Cathy was also a master of the Apollo, but some things were just better done in a real oven. We bar b qued most meats and tried to stay away from frying everything. We got a lot of use out of the kitchen as eating out ALL THE TIME, as fulltimers, got too expensive. Cathy learned to light it without problems, albeit a PITA!!!! Phil

We used our oven last week to cook a quiche, so we are ones that use our oven for something other than storage ;^)

OK here goes:

1/4 cup Bourbon
1/4 cup Orange Juice
1/4 cup Low-sodium Soy sauce
1/4 cup Brown Sugar, packed
1/4 cup Green Onions, Chopped
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
4 - 6 ounce Salmon Filets (Preferably Alaskan King or Cohos)

Combine first 8 ingredients in a large zip top plastic bag and add salmon to bag. Seal and marinate in fridge for 1 1/2 hours, turning bag occasionally. Prepare grill. Remove salmon from bag reserving marinade. Place salmon on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Cook 6 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, basting frequently with reserved marinade.

We have also done this in our tiny oven in the Montana, just cook at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes (depending on how thick your fish is). Be sure not to overcook, there is nothing worse than overcooked fish, except maybe a steak.....

Hope you enjoy.
