Our coach didn't have an oven just a convection/microwave. It's a true learning curve for me getting used to the convection thingy. I do miss the oven. We always like to have some frozen pizza or such and the convection is a different beast. But I'll get the hang of it!

Yes, there is a learning curve with a convection/microwave!

Just to be clear, you have to push and hold the knob, light the pilot, then hold the knob for 30 seconds so the pilot stays lit. If the thermocouple isn't heated up by the pilot, the valve won't let any gas through to the pilot. The same basic control has been used for over 100 years in residential water heaters, fireplaces and furnaces, not very likely to happen that way. Now if you turn on one of the cooktop burners and don't ignite it, you could have gas leaking out.....

I did the mod where you add a 4 wire bbq ignitor, one for each burner and one for the oven pilot, now I just push a button and the sparker lights the oven pilot.

Well , i love the ignitor idea, if i thought it would work,even woth my little butane torch, it ain't the easiest thing to lite, but installation ???? working in that confined area.

Also the propane smell, no problem when we use the stove top burners,i presume it's from the propane coming out before i get the pilot lit ??? The wife has 2 firefighters in the family, so a big neg, for me to deal with !!!

. I think the question if you really want to ask yourself is what type of rving is it that you really want to go to. If you're always going to be hooked up in a campsite with the amenities Electric excetera then you may want to go ahead we like to Boondock use what we have on board. Will you be using any oven that much. My wife loves to bake and we do Boondock. Once I light my oven it stays on while I'm out. I'm sure from Donna Georgia you had salt get clumpy. After turning on your ignitor pilot light it's simply put your salt shakers in the warm- oven and they dried out no clumping. I think that's what you need to ask yourself. Which of the ovens would work best. Have a great camping season...!.. Dusty

We boondock almost exclusively, and use convection all the time. Please elaborate.

I remember seeing that mod somewhere, but I can't seem to find it now. I have ignites on the stove, and I would love one for the oven. Can you provide a link?

Yep. In fact we tried to get Bob Tiffin to build an LP rig (heat, water heater, gas range and oven) for 3 years before he relented and built ours. We've got 60,000 miles on it now and just love it. I did put in an oven sparker and when DW gets cooking, all three burners and the oven are going, as well as the convection microwave. But OH! the food!!! For us this was a deal breaker, but, everyone's different.

Microwave runs on electric and we like to use the gen as little as possible. Don't need any electric to use the oven when boondocking.
