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.

    • LOL Then YOU my friend are the one who jumped to conclusions in your last post because that was a direct quote from the post you were replying to. You did say it was NOT a joke, right?
    • Finally saw a few divers myself today.  In town.    Yah, I don't think it would make much of a difference if they let us just keep going.  
    • Whoooaaa...slow down big fella. Of course I do not think one party is any more "evil" than the other.  I don't think ANY of them are evil, they just have, more or less, different basic principles. You my friend,  have some serious attitude problems and seem to be very prone to jumping to conclusions and letting your paranoid tendency's run away with you. I have many friends on both sides of the two MAJOR parties and have worked with a couple of genuine Libertarians too. I can only recall a couple individuals I would consider might be "evil" in your sense of the word. Shucks,   I don't even think YOU are evil.   Ha Ha HA!
    • Salami ready to eat. 1/2 goose.....1/2 beef. Much firmer than using pork.Love this seasoning. Garlic, smoke and peppercorns. I always add extra garlic to it. Lately I have gone to using powdered smoke. 1 tsp. per pound of meat. Gives me a consistent flavor every time. No guessing how much smoke to have. Also allows to use the oven inside instead of out in the cold.   Summer sausage in the oven now while I watch football.  
    • --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------             You might want to read what was actually typed:     Do you really believe your side is good and the other is evil? If you do, that's the part that is a big joke.
    • below is a link for doing pork loin jerky. you can use any whole meat for this.       click here :)
    • Nice conspiracy theory.  So how come after they tested additional thousands of deer they didn't find any more, if they were looking for an excuse?      What were you expecting as far as policing the borders?  How many folks would be necessary, and how on earth would they do it?   But whatever.  You sound just like those guys back in the day over by Madison Wisconsin that had big money in their deer hunting land and raising trophy bucks.  No way were they going to kill a bunch of their deer.    And look at it now.  30 percent infection levels.     It's like AIS.   They are doing what they can within the limits of budget, manpower, and politics.     Look at the map of cwd infested counties in Wisconsin... I posted it up above.   Do you want Minnesota to look like that?  Do you want to eat deer with CWD?
