I've left the glass turntable in while using cooking with the Convection Oven part of this device. The glass turntable has survived just fine. However, I would not spill liquids on as that sudden temperature change might risk breaking the glass. Now for the ends on the legs, they are silicone rubber and can take the convection heat. I'm not sure about the grilling part though.When I have used them, they tend to pop off. That may be due to trapped air expanding and pushing them off.

So I’m struggling with a couple of things on using the convection microwave oven. I’ve read on other RV forums that some ovens require that you remove the glass turntable when using the convection oven as it’s not rated for the high heat. When looking at the glass turntable in my oven it’s stamped with a label that says microwave use only. 
I downloaded the manual for my model oven and it contradicts this by saying to use the turntable for all cooking. In addition, if I were to remove the turntable the legs on the metal rack used with convection cooking really done have a flat surface to set on.
Am I ok leaving the glass turntable in the oven when convection cooking?
Also, is the metal rack with plastic end caps able to be used when grilling, or would the plastic melt.

Dawg Pod Hi there. I posted this some time back. Check out the tutorial videos referenced below. They give a good intro to the basic functions of the convection microwave.

I posted this on the r Pod Nation forum and thought I'd post it here too.


I've been experimenting a lot with our convection oven in the Dawg Pod and I just love it. The user manual was useless. I went online for some help and found these wonderful You Tube videos by a sweet lady named Janet Sadlack. She is an RVer but her videos feature her Sharp convection microwave in her kitchen. It is very similar to the High Pointe unit in our r Pod. She made four short videos which feature each of the main functions e.g. Microwave, grilling, convection baking and combination cooking. She explains which pans to use for each and gives lots of tips. She is very smart and the videos are clear and concise. Here is the link to the first video. Enjoy!

I'll give it a try.  On another note, I am in the middle of building that corner cabinet that you laid out for me.  I still am a little nervous about the lack of a firm anchor on the long side (such as you have on the microwave cabinet on your 172, but I'm giving it a shot.  I couldn't figure out what you meant by a "gable" to firm up the long side of the cabinet, given there is nothing to anchor the long side of the cabinet in the 177, but I am improvising some other supports that might work.

Getting the curve right on the front piece is my current challenge. 

I like your pods new nose job. A friend who happens to own a Lance 1685 was amazed when I sent the picture to him.  His response: "Marwayne is 'the man'."

We run the microwave on our 2000 Honda all the time, it even ran the AC on low.

I rarely hook up my 177 to shore power.  I am wondering if my 2000 watt Honda generator would pump enough electricity to run the convention oven ... or for that matter, the microwave.  I think that one or the other is rated for 1500 watts, but I may be incorrect.  In any case, has anyone run either appliance off of a 2000 watt generator?

it is common to continually bake chocolate chip cookies each trip until you learn the specifics of your oven.

we ate a lot of cookies our first year!
