      So 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!

      I'm sorry you misunderstood. I was merely referring to the oven that it
      would be more difficult to check for not heating as fast. I presume the
      same gas control runs both the burners and the oven.
