Oven Insulation

Hi All,
I have just bought a 1975 Argosy 24. I was cleaning it up and discovered dead mice between the range and the cabinets, so I pulled the range and started cleaning it then I discovered that the nice had also lived in the insulation around the oven. So I removed the insulation but didn't think it would be a problem finding new insulation to replace it with. Does any one know if the insulation is a special high temp. fiberglass or the same stuff that would be used to insulate a house?

Also I'm replacing some floor rot under the shower (do to a small leak at the faucet behind the enclosure. I noticed that the black water tank does not totally sit on the plywood, Is this OK or should I pull all of the cabinets and toilet and replace all of it?

Thank you all for your wisdom and help.

Paul903,

Regarding the stove, find someone who rebuilds stoves and have them replace the insulation and check the stove to make sure that it is safe.
