Cracks in oven frame

Hello all,

The metal frame of my oven is developing a few cracks in my 2008 Winnebago Access. Upon examination, I found some loose screws around the frame that had caused the oven to slightly sag and the weight was cracking the frame.

My attempt to rectify the problem was to move the oven back into place, tighten the screws and put some black electrical tape over the cracks so my kids donít cut themselves on the sharp edges.

Anyone else ever have this problem? Should I be using lock washers or loc-tite on the screws? Or is it simply time to replace the oven?

That is odd. I never seen such a failure before.

It is a reflection of how badly the house is punished when being driven.

It is critical that everyone should weigh their rig during their trips and adjust the tire pressure accordingly. Too little air is bad for obvious reasons, but too much air makes for an exceptionally rough ride which wreaks havoc on the house and everything attached to it. Too little or too much air in the tires also makes "handling/driving" the rig worse.

People with short motorhomes often have the opportunity to soften the ride up front as I learned with our rig. CLICK HERE to learn more.

Not sure if I buy the vehicle did that. I would bet the crack was there to some degree and made worse by the movement. You would have to twist the heck out of that to crack it. More than your house frame can possibly muster.
