Just my opinion but .... DO NOT PUT ANYTHING ON THERE THAT WILL BURN. Those saying to put wood on there, very bad idea. A burner gets turned on under the wood next thing your camper is on fire. Either replace the glass or make a cover out of sheet metal.

Yeah, I wouldn’t do that, either. Just giving Mr. Murphy a head start.

Spend the hundred bucks for the whole stovetop- that’s not really bad.

For the OP? Question?

Help me understand. Was the burner turned on while the glass cover was closed?

What you were saying is, you didn't realize the cover was closed when you came in from the outside and fired up the stove? So the flame making contact with the glass cover caused it to explode?

Question also? Was the camper cold? Like freezing inside? So when the flame touched the glass, the glass was... like 20 degrees and then instantly getting hit with fire causing it to explode, or was the camper already heated inside when you entered? Either way, the flame made contact with the glass?

Reason I'm asking is because I have a Furrion stove also with the glass flip back-bi-fold cover. I've often wondered, what would happen if the cover was left closed and the burner turned on?

I would have imagined that glass would have been heat and fire resistant. But... maybe not?

Our previous TT did not have a cover at all. I used a large wooden cutting board. Never had a problem using that. It had a cork pad attached on the bottom which prevented sliding around on the burners while in transit.

Here's another suggestion if you can't locate another glass top:

"While I am sure no one has done something like this, but maybe you have helped someone who has?"

Ha love this!
Just like when someone is asking, you know, "for a friend!"

Hope you get your cooktop fixed. Cheers!

We had the same thing happen to our 2016 Rockwwod by some guests. Cost us a hundred bucks. Called the dealer and they special orders a new unit. All I wanted was the glass but it comes in a kit. I still have the framing -brackets etc.. laying around.
It's an easy change out replacing the glass assy.
Good luck

Furion Top Glass


If that's what you need, ORDER IT!
Looking at my suppliers, it costs twice that much through the warehouse supplier that sells stuff to RV dealers.

YES and I like the price. For some reason I was coming up with prices of up to $300.00.

THANK YOU

It was warm cold outside, but warm in the trailer which is why our eye glasses stayed tinted for too long. I also thought that the glass top was probably heat resistant and may be, but not completely.

So, trailer was warm and glass top was closed. Pan of water was placed on top and burner was turned on. Maybe 10 or less minutes later, the glass exploded. We don't know if the flame actually was touching the glass, but it was turned on high. Thus, your glass cover is not totally heat resistant. Be careful. :-)

Thank you for all the great replies. I am exceptionally happy to know it can be bought for $100.00. I forgot how helpful this forum is. We were active several years ago when we had a truck camper, but stayed more with the R-Pod forum when we owned that rolling disaster. Now with our Nash, I will probably hang around here more.

The help is really appreciated.
