Oven Clearance

12 posts in this topic

I just ordered an RV 3 burner stove/oven made by Magic Chef. It looks just like the atwood model, but is white. Are these a zero clearance instalation item, or does there have to be a space between the unit and cabinet? In otherwords, can the cabinet space be snug, or does there need to be a clearance gap?

what have others done?

Well, they are. But that's not what I meant, of course wink

I will say that if you sneak over to a popular auction HSOforum, you'll find RV LP ovens for $199

I think it is the magic chef, not 100% sure - works great - I've cooked pizzas, roasts, garlic toast, baked walleye, hot dish, egg bake.... If your going to live in your house for a few days it is nice to have an oven.

An oven is one of the nicest things you can put in your fish house.

I got one on sale at a big RV dealership a few years ago as a scratch and dent. It's a small Magic Chef with three top burners and enough oven space to cook most medium sized pizzas.

The one in the camper/fish house is built into the cabinets which would make me think you don't have to have any clearance. I took that oven apart for cleaning and found insulation inside it.

The LOW sleeper house got an old oven out of a camper, 1963 still works great!

A friend of mine liked my oven so much in the wheeled house he found a used one out of a parted out camper and put it his wheeled house. To think he spent 15 years with that shanty with only two cook tops for cooking.

dirtking,

By the looks of the pic somebody got a new shanty! Looks nice.

BTW, you could also find a deal on a used one on that online free to buy and sell site.

Doug - it was new at the time - I got the oven on that Internet auction site. Paid 100 + 75 shipping - what a steal (it might have been 125 total the more I think about it)! It was at 5:30 Friday night and I got home from work with 2 minutes till the end of the auction and JUST got my bid in time.

This was all 2 working on 3 hard water seasons ago - now there is more junk in the house including a Formica countertop the is hinged to the wall just to the left hand side of the oven - it locks up and swings down to sit against the wall. That is HANDY!

Lots of night and trips to LOTW have been taken in the last 2 years!

With comments like that, you're really making me hate this snow! It's making us all wait a little bit longer to drive out there. Thanks for your review. It's nice to hear that I didn't buy junk.

Nice looking house, BTW. I like the layout. Do you fold up the top bunk during the day, or is there enough headroom to sit without hitting your head?

Hover - they actually fold down to make a very nice backrest when you are sitting there fishing (almost couch like).

I have been looking into installing a 2-way hinge so I could fold them up or down.

I bought the house as just a shell. It had the heater, carpet and 2 cabinets. I have installed my oven w/ storage for pans and such below, 2 gas lights, 4 bunk beds with storage below, a shelf, a counter top, stainless steel fan with a rheostat switch to adjust air flow hooked to a live well switch so I can turn it on, off or to "aerate" this is off for a few minutes and then kicks on for 30 seconds - I switch it to this all night (save on battery), coat racks and misc extras. The only thing I can really think I'm missing is I would like to install a radio.

I saw your pictures on the ice fishing page. Looks like you have a nice house too!

Also there is a million things you can make at home and throw in the oven. The egg bake is about my favorite. When you and your crew wakes up in the morning and everyone has a little fuzz in their heads still it is nice to just fire up the oven and cook breakfast. Cooking a big breakfast is about the last thing I want to do first thing in the morning when the fish are biting.

B.T.W - I looked on that auction site and I am 100% sure mine is a magic chef.

    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed. 
    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.    
    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
