7217Re: [classicrv] Weak Magic Chef stove
- Nov 4, 2001So many people buy a camper and expect the oven, stove, AC, Vent hood to operate the same as at home.......
As a general rule... reduce the effency of home appliances by 25-50% and you will be close to what a camper was designed to do.
I have yet to see a camper with an 80 gallon hot water tank in it delivering 140 degree water for hours! It was never meant to be that way!
