I mean seriously, this is the first time I have ever heard of cooking cheese and crackers. Am I that out of the loop?
Jim,
Well you'll never know unless you try. May I suggest Roasted Garlic Triscuts with Tillamook Medium Cheddar. Just nuke them untill the cheeze just starts to melt 15-20 seconds. Don't get chinsey on the cheeze either. Yumm.

For those with the (optional) propane oven, and wanting to melt cheese onto stuff (crackers, tortilla chips, etc), I'll note that the bottom section is a broiler.

Grilled cheese sandwiches should, of course, be grilled (I use a cast-iron frying pan, which works on the propane stove).

Solar? Inverter? Dual batteries, 6 or 12 volt

I have had trailers for many years. I personally prefer solar because the batteries are usually charged all the time (note that running the batteries way down shortens their lives)... I also like having plenty of power so I prefer the double 6 volt batteries (we need to run a CPAP machine at night). I have used two 12 volt batteries in the past with mixed results (not enough power for simple things). The inverter is a luxury just like a microwave or hair drier or toaster or blender but heck I enjoy my luxury items. That all being said I have 160 watt ETI solar panel, a 1500 watt inverter, two 6 volt golf cart type batteries ... So if you desire the luxuries get the inverter if not skip it but get solar and maybe double 6 volts. Bill

How do you brown the cheese on top, and roast the chips? I used to do them in the BBQ, but now that we have a real oven will use that.

Always many ways to skin that same cat, eh?

And don't even get me going on that crap passed off as popcorn made in a microwave. It just does not compare in the least to fresh popped in a pot/skillet/pan, with some freshly melted REAL butter and a sprinkle of salt on it.

And yes, you can melt butter in a pan on the stove for those that never realized this.
