I agree!

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Where did that come from?
Really? The egg head asked about the CC stove that has a warning not to use indoors! And your acting like oh, it is ok. Why do you think they put a warning sign on it? Do you know more than they do? Your first thing you should say is, There is a warning sign saying not to but I say ...
If they went with your internet word and not the CC company word and something happen would you feel bad? Would you care?
And to try to "Be-little me" for going with the warning signs on the stove really @!#$&%$( me off. I have no problem to give an answer the company would give. If I step out of the rules from the company I would back it up with fact but yet say read and follow what the company says. Just because you or me said it is ok I been doing it all my life does not make it right. So yes, I get a bit PO when I read a reply like yours. Stop and think, if something did happen to the OP or kids in the camper while using the stove how would you feel?
I am not here to piss you off or anyone else but warning labels are there for a reason. And yes hot coffee may burn. If the OP wants to go ahead and install the stove in their camper after you tell him remember the warning label, you did all you can do. I am not say they shouldn't install it but I will say the company that makes that stove say not to. I love the stove and I have one. I also have 2 little kids and I wouldnt want to put them in harms way.
Warning labels were put on for a reason. As I stated, I called the company because I wanted the OP to know how the company feels about doing what they asked about. Now if they install it or not is up to them. But I feel good telling them the facts.
I am not trying to come down on you or Ian but please do not over ride a warning when someone asks if they should or could. Sorry if this post or my other post came off wrong but I will not back down on any warning when any kid or a family member might or could be in danger. I hope you do not feel like I was coming down on you. I too am a egg head.......

Last year Costco offered the Camp Chef for $160 plus $40 rebate and being a life long fan of the Easy-Bake Oven I had to have one. I've used the oven about 10 times. I can't get the oven to maigntain a constant high temperature. If you wait long enough the oven will heat up to 400 degrees. However, when you open the door and shove in a dish the oven will drop to 325 degrees. If you hold your mouth just right it may crawl up to 350. I generally camp between 8,000' and 11,000' and perhaps the altitude is why the low temp. I bought Fat Daddios bakeware from Amazon to use in it which are small and work quite well.

As long as you're not intending on baking a chicken and stay with smaller things you'll be happy with the oven. Don't shove in a 9 x 13 lasagna and think it will ever bake thoroughly. As for the big question, "Would I use this inside my Burro?" my answer is no. I enjoy cooking outside and I was raised to be compliant.

There are two distinct mind-sets at work here, and the differences between the two can cause some real tension. This comes up any time you discuss tow-vehicle ratings, towing speeds, tire types or inflations, need for brakes, and now, indoor use of outdoor appliances.

The other side of this question is the outdoor use of indoor appliances. Have you ever plugged in an electric drill or saw and used it outdoors? Better read the manual -- that tool is rated for indoor use only.

Yes, warning labels exist for a reason. Two reasons, actually -- one is to protect us from our own stupidity (our own ignorance, really. Stupid will do what stupid wants, regardless of the warnings). Sometimes by having our ignorance reduced, we can take suitable precautions and get on with it. The second is to protect the manufacturer from lawsuits. So, yes the warnings are usually a bit over-the-top, exaggerating a risk that is nonetheless real.

In all of these discussions, I am reminded of the guy who jumped off the top of a 30-story building. All the way down, he kept saying, "So far, so good..."

Warning labels are to serve when common sense is left at the curb.

I think this is true of trailer camping in general. I never realized the extreme dangers until I got here.
  • Nearly certain towing accidents, especially in Colorado
  • Carbon monoxide
  • Battery hydrogen explosions
  • Wiring shorts causing fires
  • Propane explosions
  • Oxygen depletion
  • Burns and fires from cooking
  • Frames breaking
  • Wheels falling off
  • Tires, tires, tires
  • Brake failures

Now when others tell me of their skydiving or motorcycle racing exploits, I just puff out my chest and sneer - "That's nuthin', I camp".

When I took my motorcycle safety class, just about the first thing the instructor told us was something along the lines of, "You are about to start doing something dangerous - riding a motorcycle. You can get killed. In this class you will learn the risk. You will learn how to mitigate some of that risk. Then, you have to decide for yourself if you are willing to accept the risk that remains. Riding isn't for everyone."

When I quit riding it wasn't the dying I was afraid of, it was the enhanced possibility of quadriplegia. Of course, compared to the dangers of camping that's nuthin'.

Experience has most always been my teacher............

When I instruct another on m/c riding........I have one rule.
Watch EVERYONE else.

Same with my instructions on driving on snow and ice.
