Just because you’re on the go doesn’t mean you need to give up on baking. Baking with your RV’s oven is a viable solution for those who wish to prepare delicious recipes wherever they go. Nevertheless, there are a few safety precautions you may want to take if you plan to bake in your RV oven.
Get an oven thermometer
The heat inside your RV’s oven may not exactly match with the temperature on the knob. As such, we recommend using an oven thermometer to get a better idea of the actual internal temperature. Once you’ve identified the discrepancy, you can use that knowledge to adjust the temperature setting.
Preheat your oven
Preheating is an essential part of most bakes. However, when you’re baking in an RV oven, it’s even more necessary since your RV’s oven may take longer than a typical oven to get up to the desired temperature. Make sure to check the oven thermometer at regular intervals after setting the temperature to see when it has heated up.
Compensate for uneven heat
The propane ovens used in RVs may heat unevenly, and there are a few things you can do to compensate for this. For example, it’s always a good idea to turn your dishes when the cooking time is halfway through. Additionally, you may want to consider placing a baking stone on top of the shelf to better distribute the heat.
When you’re out camping, there’s nothing quite like baking with your RV’s oven and sharing a delicious, hot meal with the whole family. Make sure to find the right RV for you and your loved ones at Hanner RV Supercenter.
A continuous positive airway pressure device provides constant air pressure to help those with obstructive sleep apnea keep breathing at night. This electric-powered medical device is essential for many, including those who enjoy traveling in an RV. However, with limited access to electricity in your trailer, you need to ensure you have enough power for the device, even without available electricity. Try out one of these alternative power solutions to have peace of mind when traveling with a CPAP device.
A common way to power the device is to use a 120-volt service or alternating current. To do so, you need to have an inverter with enough wattage to give the device the power it needs.
If you wire a 12-volt outlet into the trailer, you can utilize a direct current cable to provide enough power for the CPAP device. Be sure the cable you purchase works well with your device before hitting the road.
A portable battery pack is a convenient power option. Many battery packs are able to power your device for two nights before you need to recharge them.
One or more generators can not only power the CPAP device but also power your entire trailer. This method does not drain your batteries. Keep in mind, however, that if you are staying in a more populated area, you may not be able to run a generator overnight due to the noise.
We at Hanner RV Supercenter hope you have a safe and enjoyable trip in your trailer. To find the right trailer for your next adventure, head into our dealership to view our selection.
