Loud bang

While browning chicken on the gas stove on Tuesday evening, there was a loud BANG like a gunshot. My ears even rang afterwards. It seemed to come from the back corner of the stovetop where I was preparing dinner and minding my own business. There was no smell of propane either before or after the noise. I took the stovetop off but didn't see any sign of an explosion. I might have thought I was dreaming but my hubby was there and heard it too. He agrees that the sound came from inside the coach. There is no smell of propane anywhere now that I can smell. I even considered that it might have been someone shooting at us but can't find any holes outside. Any ideas? Ever hear of something like this?

The jacks can do that in cold weather

No room for a spare tire in our basement. Weight would be a killer. Perhaps we should reconsider.

I see you have a 2011 RV. If you haven't used the oven much before it could be just the sheetmetal flexing with the heat.

Hi Jillie

Personally I doubt it was the propane. Check your cupboards carefully for any cans that might have exploded.

I had this happen last year, twice within 3 days and it shook the whole MH.. Drove me nutz for a week. I finally noticed one of the rear jack springs had broke and with the jacks all the way down, they let go like a rocket. Checked the other side and sure enough, that one broke too.

No oven. Just the stovetop and the microwave/convection which I wasn't using. Normally I use the microwave/convection a lot.

Still need to check cans and jacks. It's getting dark so I'll do that tomorrow.

This has me on edge and leery about using the stove top.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

Would you post a pic of what I should look for? Thanks!

Too dark right now and I seriously doubt your jack springs would break with a 2011 coach. However, with your leveling jacks down (depending on brand and kind) you will either see a large 2-3 inch in diameter spring running next to the jack shaft or you won't. If you do, just check all 4 and make sure the springs are expanded and not broken. If you see one, you will know it.
