Review and How to Install the Furrion 2-in-1 Range Oven


Rob: Hey, guys. Rob here at etrailer.com, and I'm just trying out my new Furrion oven combo. It looks like these are eggs are done, so let's go ahead and take these off the stove and we can take a closer look.Now, there may be a few different reasons why you're looking for a stove. Maybe yours is broken, you need to replace it, or maybe you just want to upgrade and have a nicer look in your kitchen. Whatever the reason is, having an oven stove combo is going to be a really nice thing, because we're going to be able to cook on our stove top, and in an oven, so we're not going to be limited to using just the stove top when I make something in a pan, but at the same time we're not going to have to go out, pull out the barbecue grill, and have to fire that up. Plus, there's just some things you can't cook on a barbecue grill.

It's a lot easier to cook in an oven. Not to mention, having an oven stove in your RV is going to prevent you from having to go out to dinner every night. It'd be nice to save yourself a little bit of money and enjoy a nice home cooked meal when we're on the road.Our Furrion stoves are going to have a couple of different variations to them. There's going to be two different colors and two different sizes. Here we have the black one, that's going to be the 17".

Now, there's also going to be a black one that's going to be a 21, and they're also going to be available in stainless steel in that 17 and 21. Now, they're all going to be the same width and depth, but the height is what we're going to be measuring, so the stove itself is going to be 17" measured this way, but it's still going to be 21" across. Whenever you're looking for a stove, you want to measure the height to make sure you get the correct one. But regardless of which model you choose, each one is going to give you the same amount of burners and the BTU ratings from each one. The only difference is the oven is going to be a little bit larger.The grates on our stove and it come into different variations.

We'll have the wired grades for the 17" stoves, and the 21" stoves are going to come with die cast grates. But if you want the die-cast grates for your 17" stove, they are sold separately, and they are going to work with all Furrion stoves. So if you want to upgrade a 17" one or if need to replace one for your 21", they are sold separately and you can find them here etrailer.com.Now, the way we're going to light our stove is the knob on the very far left hand side. It'll have a flame right there, and there's going to be a pulse ignition, which means we're just going to turn this knob, and each time it clicks, it'll give us a spark, so we're not going to have to worry about hooking up power and having an electric ignition to go out. Its going to be a pulse ignition, just like your barbecue pit at home.Our Furrion stoves are going to give us a total of three burners up top.

We'll add two in the back and one in the front, and all three of these are going to run propane as well as the oven. Both smaller burners in the back are going to give us 6,500 BTUs. Now, the larger one up front here is going to give us a total of 8,000, so these two back ones are going to be good for slow cooking or if you're going to be using smaller pots and pans, and the one up front here will give us a little bit more sheet for those larger items.Now one thing I really like about this stove, just like in our house, we're going to have an oven light. Come to the button over here, we can push it. Our knobs will light up and we can see what's going on inside the oven. That way we're on burn or dry out our food. And just like your stove at home, we can actually remove the great for easy cleaning. What I really like, so if we flip the grate over, we can see it has these little pegs, and those are going to line up with holes along the edges here so it's not going to be sliding around even while we're driving. Underneath the grate, we're going to have this flat surface, which is going to catch all the grease, but you'll notice that around the burners, it's going to have a slope, so we're not going to have to worry about it going underneath and getting underneath the burner.Aside from those features, I really like the wear of and looks. It looks like it belongs in a house, but it is a little bit smaller. But the touches of stainless steel and the clean appearance really give your kitchen a nice updated look.Now as far as the oven goes, we are going to have plenty of heat in the oven. Our oven range is going to be from 350 degrees Fahrenheit all the way up to 500 degrees, so whether we want to cook a frozen pizza, a casserole, or a cake, we should have plenty of heat to get that done.Whenever we're driving our motor home down the road, things moving around, falling off the shelves can be a problem, and we don't want anything to fall down in between our burners, potentially causing a fire, or just making a hassle of us having to clean it. Furrion has taken that into account and they've given us this really nice glass top. And there's actually some rubber pieces on the edge here, so it's going to hold it really snug. We don't have to worry about hitting a bump and the glass coming up a bouncing, because it's actually held in there pretty well. Just A little bit of tension will loosen it up, though.Now one thing I do want to mention, you don't want to use the stove while the glass is down. Even if you are only using the front burner, you want to make sure it's fully open. And once you're done using your stove, you want to let it cool down before you fold the glass down.Now, our stove is smaller than you're used to in your house, but this is going to be a standard size for most RVs. A lot of you may be looking at it going, "Well, how much can I fit on there" Well, I have a medium sized pot here, a small pan, and we actually still have plenty of room up here to get another dish on, plus all the room in the oven, so we can actually make a full meal right here.Inside the oven, it is going to be much smaller than a standard house oven, but here I have an 11 x 7" pan, and you can see we slept plenty of room to get it in there, so you can cook a casserole or even a cake. If we look inside of our oven, we're going to have one rack. Now, we are going to be able to raise it up or lower down depending on what size pan we have. You simply just lift up on the back, pull the pan out, and then reinsert on top to the other rack.As far as the installation goes, it's extremely straightforward. You just need to disconnect your gas line. Obviously, make sure you turn it off prior to that. You're going to to remove the screw that are holding your current stove in place, slide it out. Then we're just going to reverse that process to the new one in. Hook up our gas lines, put our fasteners in. Now, you may need to find a 12-volt power source for our lights, but every motor home is going to be different, so we'll walk you through how we got ours hooked up.To begin our installation, we're going to want to turn off our gas. I already went ahead and did that, but we want to make sure that it's off. So I'm going to come to the stove and then I'm going to turn all the burners on light, make sure they're all on high, and then try to light it. Make sure it doesn't come on and make sure there's no more gas present.All right, so it's not coming on, so we can go ahead and turn that off and we can get ready to remove our stove. Now, each one is going to be a little bit different, but there is a general way that these go in, so we'll show you how we're going to take ours out.If we come to our cooktop, we're going to lift it up. That'll expose all of the burners and gas lines underneath. We're going to have a large line coming in, we're going to remove this nut so we can pull the line off of the stove itself. Now, I'm going to use two adjustable wrenches to take the line off. Now, you want to hold that fitting while you're using another wrench to turn it so we don't damage the regulator or the line. I'm just going to pull it off and set it right aside for right now.Now, if you look at the very edge of your stove, we're going to have two screws, maybe more, but typically there'll be two screws going into the side, either into the cabinet or to the wall from the inside of the stove here. We're going to have two on each side, so we want to pull all four of those screws out. Now, ours are held in by Phillips screws, so we're just going to us a Phillips bit to take them out. But if you're held in my bolts or whatever else, just use the appropriate tool and take those fasteners out. Once you have all four screws removed, you do want to double check, make sure there's no other fasteners that are holding it in place, and it's probably a good idea to grab an extra set of hands so we can slide the stove out.To get our stove out, I'm going to grab it at the very back. I'm just going to move it slightly forward so I can get a grip on it, and then an extra hand is going to help me grab it and we're going to pull it out so we can get it sat down on the ground. Now when you are pulling it out, you want to be extremely careful, kind of help guide that line out, because the gas line is going to stay connected and it goes into the stove.A few things you want to check once you have your old stove out. You're going to want to check the size of fitting that you have on your gas line to make sure it's going to match up with your new stove. Not only that, but our new stove has lights on it, so we are going to need a 12-volt power source. If you don't have a 12-volt power source close, you're going to want to run a surrogate to the battery, but since it's not fuse protected, I do suggest putting a fuse in place to make sure it's not going to do anything or cause any damage to the electronics.I went ahead and ran a couple of wires. Now, these are not hooked up so they're not live, but I want them here ready for me so we can hook up my stove right away, and then once everything's in, I'll them to the battery.We want and unboxed or a new stove. Now, we want to open up the top just so we can get access to the gas lines, just like our old one. I'm going to lift up the glass, tilt it back, and then we'll want to grab this vented section towards the back of our stove and we're going to lift upward. Now, I feel a little bit of pressure, but you see it, it'll come up, and then very carefully make sure the grills don't come out with it or we're going to slide the top section back and lift it completely off. We're going to set this aside where it won't get damaged.Now if we open up the top, we can see where our gas lines are going to come in. But if you remember old stove, our gas line was actually on the other side and we didn't have this extension tube coming in. It being on the other side is not that big of a deal because we do have enough line to move it over to the other side, but we don't want it to stick out this far. I went ahead and double checked, and this fitting is not going to fit the one that's on the motorhome, so I'm going to come right here and take this tube out, remove the one from my old stove, and put the adapter in there. Just keep in mind, the stove is not going to come with any adapters. You just want to have the correct fittings to match up to the ones on the line that's on your motorhome.I'm going to hold fitting and then I'll loosen up this line that way I don't do any damage to the fitting or turn that regulator at all. We're not going to be using this in our application, again, because we're going to put that adapter on and have our line come in just like our old stove. Any time you're putting any gas fittings on, you want to make sure you use thread sealer, because we don't want any leaks, especially inside of our motor home.Now that we have our stove prepped, we're going to bring it inside and we can get it in place. Once we have our new stove loosely in place, we're going to help guide our gas line in, and you also want to make sure you still have access to your 12-volt wires and ground wire so we can hook them up with the back of the stove. They're going to hook up the same way as our old gas lines. Our power wires, we just want to hook our 12-volt positive to the black wire and the negative wire is going to be our white wire.Now whenever you're connecting your wires, I always suggest leaving the power off or don't hook up the positive wire until the very end. Again, these wires are not live, but they are extended towards the battery so they can make our connection at the very end easily. Make sure I put my thread sealer on my gas line and we can put our fitting in place. It's always a good idea to get it started by hand, make sure it's threading on, and then we can come back with a wrench and tighten up all the way.Don't forget to put the screws in on each side. I went ahead and put two in each one of the mounting holes, just because we'll give it a little bit extra support. Now we can grab the top and if we come down to the very edge underneath the glass here, we'll have these little tabs. Those are going to line up with some tabs on the inside of the front piece right here. We to lift up the whole assembly, kind of line those tabs up, make sure they seat in there, and once they line up, we're going to come to the back and push down until it clicks into place.But now that we have our gas line hooked up and our stove in place, we're going to go ahead and hug up the 12-volt power source for our lights. Then I'm going to turn on the gas and check for leaks. I'm going to come back with some soapy water. I'm going to spray my fittings down. What we're going to be looking for is expanding bubbles. Obviously, we're going to have bubbles like this because it's soapy water, but we're looking for bubbles to start expanding and popping, or producing more bubbles, because that would mean we have a leak coming out. But it looks like we're good, so we're going to put our top back on and we'll fire up the burners and make sure everything's working.First we're going to go ahead and turn our light. We can see that our knobs are lighting up. If we look inside the oven, you see the lights on in there as well. Now, I'm going to go ahead and close the oven up. I'm going to turn all my burners and the oven on high. You will see a flame right there. We're going to turn them all on, including the oven. And we'll this button over to the right and we can see all of our burgers lit.To have the pilot and the oven lit, we're going to push in on the oven knob a far right, rotate it until it gets to the flame, except we're going to hold that knob in and we're going to rotate the igniter knob until our pilot light comes on. If you look inside, we can see our pilot light, and now that that's on, you make sure that the adjustment's going to work. We can see if I turn it off, we're getting a lot more flame. If I turned it down, the flame's going to get smaller. But you can actually turn it all of the way down to the pilot light setting, and the pilot light should stay lit. If it doesn't, we're just going to repeat that process: holding that knob in until we have our pilot light lit.But again, I'm Rob here at etrailer.com, and that'll finish up your look at the Furrion stove of oven combo. But if you excuse me, I've got to feed the guy that helped me put this stove in.


Questions and Comments about this Video

Christine A.

Is there a way to lift up the cooktop to clean underneath if food falls under the burner? Food is catching fire underneath and I can't seem to get to it to clean under there.

Ok so you need to take the cast iron grate(s) off, lift up from the back of the stovetop and kinda tilt it forward/towards you. There are going to be some tabs that keep it in place whilst driving, that is why its so hard to get off. push the tabs out of the way and it should pop up to let you clean underneath. I read that sometimes it will need some extra elbow grease to get them to let go.

We purchased a Furrion 2 in 1 range oven on April 12, 2019 (and received it May 16, 2019). We installed it but have hardly used it, mainly due to covid and not travelling. This year we started using it more, and at first everything worked fine. Then one day the oven flame would only stay on low. The pilot lights easily but it never gets a high enough flame, which is blue, to ever heat the oven enough. Also, around the same time, the right back burner igniter stopped working. It will light with a bbq lighter and the knob works fine. Any suggestions on how to fix this, and where would I find a diagnostic manual, not just the instruction manual which comes with the oven? Thanks.

@MaureenV I contacted Furrion/Lippert about your oven only having a low flame, and the issue of your burner not igniting. On both counts they stated that they do not attempt to diagnose these issues and that you should contact a dealership or mobile technician. Regarding the right rear burner not lighting by the ignition electrode, the electrodes are fragile and can be broken with a sponge or cloth while cleaning. However they do not offer a replacement ignitor. Furrion only supplies the owner's manual which comes with a stove, not a diagnostic manual. I have provided a link to the manual below.

Your video did not discuss the opening dimensions. Are the opening dimensions the same as the stove? Or are the dimensions listed for the stove the overall dimension such as the deep number including the oven door? Also, I noticed that the video showed insulation in the cabinet space. Is there insulation included with the stove? I am trying to figure out if I can upgrade to the 21 stove. Thanks.

For the 21 Inch Stove # FSRE21SABL , the installation opening needs to measure 20-1/8 inches long x 20-1/16 inches tall x 17-3/4 inches deep. This is slightly smaller than the overall dimensions of the stove. The 21 inch stove has insulation built into the stove already. The camper in the video also had insulation in the cabinet, but that does not come with the stove.
