Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.

Replacing the stovetop and oven with electric replacements is a problem because there isn't wiring to support them. You'd need to go back and work out 50 Amp wiring for those, which them limits where you can use it (most places top out at 30 Amp)...

Keeping it flexible with better RV appliances doesn't cost more than household appliances, and it keeps your options open...

While I agree that it's good to keep things running on gas (flexibility) I dunno about the refer pricing; Dometic and such go for $1,000+.

I can get a decent 120V one for about half that (or more, of course).

I done it...

I removed the propane tanks from my 76 TW altogether - not necesarily for price, more because I'm a big wimp and feel really uncomfortable around propane and pilots, etc. My HW heater was already a 2 way, so that was fine - and I was removing all of the cabinetry in the kitchen to start fresh anyway, so i made sure I have plenty of counter space for a hotplate (that I put away when not being used) and a toaster oven. I also still have room for my crockpot, microwave (although I'm thinking of turning that into a built-in) and my coffee-maker.
I should qualify all of this by stating that I am not a person who likes to "rough it" - if I can't have 30 amp service, I'm not going to stay there and I am certainly not going to be boondocking or dry camping or anything like that (not that there's anything wrong with that - just not me)
So if you think that you will be doing those things, you might wanna re-think losing the propane...
