Trying to go all electric!!

Like so many people,,I was in a rush when I bought my used 2006 Zinger. After the fact, nothing worked as the man I bought it from said,,But anyway! As I am repairing and customizing I have come to the point where I want to go all electric. Everything is all good for this except the stove!! Now my question? Is there an all electric stove made for travel trailers that would work in my trailer?? If so, where would could I find one,,used in good shape would work!! We have put our trailer on our land and living in it,,I don't see it moving anymore! Thanks Y'all,happy camping!!

I was thinking of doing the same on my outdoor kitchen if I happen to run out of propane. Put True Induction in your search. They are pricey but work on 120v and you can get them as inset or countertop.

I'm curious as to why you want to go all electric? I see having gas appliances as a benefit, especially in the case of a power loss.

There use to be what was called -- an apartment size range. I don't know if they are available any more or not. I think they were approximately 20 in. wide.
Just remember tho, something like that will require 50 amp service.

True Induction is a good alternative to the propane stoves if, as stated above, you have a 50 amp RV. Having a 30 amp and running an air conditioner can be iffy.

The induction cooktops have a countertop/tabletop option that you can buy in most department stores but be aware that you may need to purchase new cookware. Induction cooking requires a high ferrous (iron) content in the cookware to work properly.

Easy fix would be to take out the stove/oven (sell it) and put a level counter top that kinda matches and then put a door under for storage and buy a 2 burner hot plate.

Even with a 50 amp service you don't have a true 50 amps. You have a leg of 30 amps and a leg of 20 amps plus it most likely be 120v not 220v.

I have no idea what you're referring to, but I believe the response meant that with a 50 Amp service (that is, two hot leads, EACH with a 50 amp half of a dual-circuit breaker) then potentially, he would have 240 volts available. Just like in a house. However, campgrounds might not be wired the same way, that is, each hot lead could possibly be coming from the same leg, since RVs don't use 240 VAC. (120 to ground, 240 between two hot leads). Unless the campground is wired like a home dryer outlet, then it wouldn't work.
As far as the OP, just get an electric skillet, and a toaster oven. Each in 120VAC. That's going to take care of 99% of the cooking. Like others, I don't see why you would want to get rid of propane. Using electricity to cook, heat water, run the fridge and heat the place will overload your camper's electrical system.

We have a convection microwave (no gas oven) & 2 "as seen on tv" induction portable cookers that store easily in a drawer or cabinet & haven't used the gas cooktop in over 2 years. The only time we use propane is while traveling to keep the fridge cold & occasionally run the furnace if really cold or electric heaters don't keep up.

On a 50 amp service there's actually 100 amps at the pedestal split into 2 - 50 amp legs with a double 50 amp breaker, but yes there's usually a 30 & 20 amp plug at the pedestal.

Just jumping in here......I had an apartment size (gas) range in my '84 Holiday Rambler. be aware that they are 36" tall. your cabinets are only 30. Had to do some "remodeling" to make everything work.
