We have one of those as well. They are great machines. We use ours outside though.

Breakfast is usually inside. The other meals, at least the main courses, are prepared more outside. But even when using the grill, there are always side dishes that are heated in the microwave or cooked on top of the stove inside.

We almost always cook inside where we have everything. We just purchased a one burner portable induction cooktop and use that most of the time. We have a Instant Pot electric pressure cooker at home and just love it. It would be a great cooker for on the road.

When traveling we usually cook inside. Once we get one place for a while, I grill outside a lot while DW does side dishes inside. Leftovers are great too.

Inside unless we're grilling! As mentioned before, that's where all the spices, utensils, etc are, almost as if it were a real kitchen! Oh, wait, it IS a real kitchen, why not USE it?

Agree. That's why we cooked and ate inside, except for grilling. Being full-timers it was our home so it just seemed natural to us. We don't like hauling everything outside and back inside.

Mostly inside but if I fry, cook bacon, fish or fry tortillas into chips, I put the electric pan outside.

I've been wanting (procrastinating) to install a sidewall vent cover behind the stove fan to send the air outside. Right now the fan just blows it back into the room.

Exclusively outside. Had a travel trailer for 15 years, never even lit the stove...we've had the class a for 3 years and haven't cooked anything inside. Under the awning or EZ Up depending on weather...

So yes, we do almost all of our cooking outside.


To answer your question...most cooking is done inside of the coach. I do love to grill outside.

I also have a Ventana. Do you have a pic on where you mounted the LP quick connect? I was thinking that the only place that is vented is back on the door side where the chassis batteries are placed. But that is close to the engine and exhaust.

We usually cook inside depending on the weather and how long we intend to remain at a particular park. I will use park provided charcoal pits if available, other wise I have a couple of electric grills that I use outside. I turn on some music and grill buffalo burgers, or brats and we sit outside and enjoy our meal.

I cook outside-- have a grill,crock pot,induction burner,griddle,etc, all in a bay slide out. Other than a few microwave dishes, we have never cooked in any of our coaches.

We cook most dinners outside. Breakfasts are mostly outside too, unless weather prohibits it. The exception is that I typically pack up all of my outdoor cooking stuff the night before we leave a campground, in which case the departure breakfast will be quick and easy and indoors.
