Cookie Sheet Stove Cover
2018 Ram 2500
2018 Palomino HS-6601
I made a cover for the propane stove to gain more usable counter space. I also wanted to cover the knobs just in case something accidentally turned the gas on.
My mod consists of a plywood frame slightly taller than the height of my stove burners and knobs. I made this using a compound miter saw and excess plywood I had.
For the top cover, I found an AirBake aluminum cookie sheet that was the exact size of my frame. The aluminum cookie sheet fit my requirements; lightweight and water-resistant.
I simply attached the cookie sheet to the frame with stainless screws and a little dab of silicone. To finish the wood, I used spar varnish just in case water got on the frame. Although the cover is a pretty tight fit, I set it on a shelf liner to make sure there is no movement during travel.
The mod is working out fine. It has not moved for 1,200-miles and provides much more countertop space. I no longer have to set things directly on my stove when it is not in use.
My son and I worked about one hour, plus varnishing to complete this modification. It cost me $20. In my opinion, the skill level of this modification is easy to medium.
