Outside kitchen stove?

I just ordered my first Zinger. It's a 2014 Zinger 31BH fifth wheel. I've never had an outside kitchen in any of my fifth wheels so I'm pretty excited to try this one out. I'm a little disappointed that Zinger doesn't offer a stove in their outside kitchens. Has anyone come up with a fix for this?

How about a folding gas stove from CW like this:

You could plumb a propane stub off your existing RV propane piping to somewhere near your outdoor kitchen with a shutoff valve. Use a regulator and supply hose with quick connects so you can run the stove off your RV propane without having to have an external supply.

My old Blue Ridge fiver had an outdoor kitchen with a fold down stove. It hung from the wall of the outdoor kitchen and folded down so that it was perpendicular to the RV and hanging outside the RV when in use. I don't know if something like that would work with the Zinger kitchen layout or not, or even where to find one, but it was pretty handy.

Good luck and I hope you enjoy your new Zinger!

Thanks Mike, my plan so far is exactly what you have suggested. I just thought I'd throw it out there to see if anyone has tried anything different. Safe camping!

If you have the counter space, you could cut in one of these.

Congrats on the 31BH. You will love the outside kitchen. We bought a 2013 300BH last year this time and were trying to figure out what to do for a stove.

I did a lot of research and went high tech. We bought a Max Burton 6000 1800-Watt Portable Induction Cooktop. Paid 80 bucks on Amazon.

Don't waste your money on a cheaper, lower wattage unit. This is the best of its kind. The commercial grade stuff runs in the couple hundreds and not necessary for how often its used.

We couldnt be happier. We had to shop a couple compatible frying pans, but this thing is great. It does'nt get hot on the bottom, so we cook on the slide out shelf. We use it inside the trailer and don't have to worry about open flames.

Here's the link.

And, please, no one ask me how this works, I'm still wrapping my head around the technology. I like to freak the people out and start to boil water, than pick up the pan and lay my head on the burner. It only gets warm after the pan has been heated up for awhile.

My Crossroad 26RB has a rear bumper mount that supports our grill and swings around next to the outside kitchen area. Works great. Folds flat against the back of the TT for travel. 26rb has a propane outlet just under the kitchen area. Stove and mount came with the TT. Might be an option you can get from Crossroads.

adlib,
I tried what Mike suggested..
However, your propane tanks have a regulator and the stove he reccommends has a regulator.
this will not work, as the 2 regulators will cut the supply down too much.
I wiil try the 2 burner cook top, as suggested and build a frame for it.

I use an electric skillet Rival 20" skillet $18.00 at Walmart. But I'm seriously contemplating an induction burner.

1800 watts is a lot of juice being drawn on those little wires that they normally run in those trailers.
Have you noticed any problems running it on full power?

Great point.

No issues yet. No more draw than large toaster oven we had prior and no issues. Anyone know what the ratings on the wiring for the 110 lines running in the current ST models?

If its the same wiring for the AC, they run about 1500 watts.
