Stove covers

Hello, I have a 2012 with an oven and of course the 3 burners. If I am cooking in the oven I was wondering if I have to remove the two beautiful covers that go over the 3 gas burners. The back cover has 2 long slits in it that seem to allow for the heat. My covers are very very nice and heavy, made out of the same quartz as my counter tops. I do not want to damage them, so I've been removing them every time I use the oven. PLEASE PLEASE don't answer unless you know for sure. Thanks so much

Well you don't have granite because Redwood never used granite - so you have quartz which is extremely heavy or the composite plastic tops that are kind of a gray swirl.

I won't answer anything else in case I'm not sure.

Sorry, we have the "quartz" also but no oven & we don't use the cooktop. We have a pair of induction cookers that are used, tops haven't been off gas cooktop in over a year.

I tried leaving them on but found that they "sweat" so much the cooktop was full of water. Then I tried leaving just the back one on but it too was wet. So now I take them off.

Cheers

I removed the stove and sink tops from the trailer the day we brought it home. Too heavy to have to take off and then put back on.

We took off our sink tops before we made our first trip. I think they're in the garage somewhere. As for the stove, I keep mine on when traveling, then remove the front section once we're settled. I keep the back section on and use for a little extra counter space.

Despite my insistence that we have an oven, I've used it one time in three years. Don't recall taking off the stove cover when I used the oven.

Not sure if someone else mentioned it or not, make sure you open the outside vent when cooking.

Have friends that just purchased a GD Reflection & were told during PDI to remove the stove cover before cooking because could not be used as a griddle, duh! Apparently they had some one try it out.

We removed our quartz covers from the stove and the sink immediately after purchase when we realized that the weight on the sink bouncing down the road was causing the sink to come loose. If I remember right, all four of the quartz covers together weighed in at around 50 pounds!

We took off the sink covers on our RL, but kept the Stove covers to make the extra counter space, didn't worry about heat as we didn't have an oven and hardly ever use the stove top burners. The sink covers for this MB are at our summer residence and no stove covers as we have the Induction Cook top.

We keep our stove covers on all the time. For extra counter space. When I use the oven I set the back cover up against the wall. The heat comes up from the back. If you leave it on, believe it or not it warps so there is a lot of heat there. It happened to me and I flipped it over while oven was on to warp it back flat. Also, when using the front burner, I usually leave the back cover on. The edge of our back cover has discoloured so I should take it off. You can't see the discolouring when both covers are on. We full time, use the barbecue, electric induction burner, and the convection microwave but I still like the oven for baking. We also boondock a couple times a year so the oven and propane cook top get used.

While on this subject does anyone here think I could replace my 3 gas burner 13fl for the 15 or 16 electric burners?

You can but the 120v burners for the trailer is not the same as the 240volts burners in your house. There are a few on here with the new induction cook top. Maybe the can chime in. Also you will need either a generator or an invertor with extra batteries if not hooked up to electric.

Ya like shane said, you only have 110VAC available so you get 1 burner, or 2 burners that operate one at a time or both at half power. Pretty slim options really. I would rather keep the gas, and throw a induction portable burner in the cupboard.

104 I'll keep the gas one wife just like how the new electric ones work at the house but I didn't know that you can only operate at 110v that doesn't make it worth it.

I'll add this: The new Induction Cooktop drops into a cutout in the counter, so to replace the gas cooktop would require changing that section of counter, or a make shift section to hold the induction cooktop where the gas was removed. The max input to the cooktop is 1800 Watts, so a single burner can use all that, but if you turn on the second burner it will start splitting that available power. For us it's fine as we seldom use the cooktop, preferring to use an Electric Fry Pan and/or Microwave/Convection Oven.
If you are handy or know someone that is, you could install a 240V Induction unit by wiring it thru a small subpanel wired to the L1 & L2 terms or the current Distribution Panel. Draw back would be that it would only be functional when hooked to a real 50 circuit. There's a member on the Montana forum that has done that for a 240V Clothes Dryer in his Montana.

That ol' Ozz? I know he did his, but so did about 5 others on the MOC.

its actually pretty easy to do, but those appliances are dead in the water if you only have a 20A or 30A site or if you try to run on generator.
