Cook Top Range

I wish to place an order for a cook top. Found a good source for a Suburban cook top, but wish to see if Maytag makes a SS unit that burns propane. The Maytag home page does not show SS nor propane.
Does anyone have a source for a Maytag?
Thanks,
Dick

Not a Maytag, but Kitchenaide makes a 2 burner that is LP or natural gas. I have one in my MH that I installed.

Most Natural gas appliances can be fitted to work with propane by the installation of the proper orifices or a pre appliance regulator (that is what mine has). You would need to contact an appliance installer or gas guy regarding the regulator. Many manufacturers offer the orifice kits as a separate part for those that are going to use LP.

I LOVE IT.

With shore power I have electronic ignition, Since it is only 2 burners I gained almost 50% of the counter top that the old one took up and it has sealed burners so when I boil stuff over I have an easy cleanup.

Just as a point of reference we full timed in a 31 foot Airstream trailer for almost 3 years with a regular Magic Chef cooktop/stove. I never used more than 2 burners at one time. One of the Kitchenaid ones just ended on ebay for 289.00. Most places will hit you for 400 NIB.

Among the things which absolutely baffle me is the continued insistence of the RV industry to inflict those large three burner cooktops on us. WIth counter space at such a premium, it is simply inexplicable.

I do a lot of cooking, and even at home I almost never use more than two burners, so I too pulled out the monster oven/range and installed a two burner cooktop. The additional space has made a huge difference in the livability of our coach.

I don't know if it is stll there, but last time I was over at Colaw's RV salvage they had a brand new Seaward Princess two burner cooktop at the very attractive price of - well, I forget. $150 or so. See http://www.colawrvsalvage.com.

Mark,

I can tell you why in one word

CHEAP!

The three and 4 burner cook tops that are installed for RV use cost no where near as much as the 2 burner seaward and kitchenaid tops. I have a Motorhome magazine that Chris for England sent me, you should see what they have. There cook tops are 2 and 3 burner, but if you did not know where they were you would have a time finding them they are so built in. I really miss my cook top on our 74. It was a 4 burner, but with the cover closed it was all counter space. The unit was flush mounted into the counter. Then the waste of 4 burners was not an issue since I could cover them and use the space effectively.

Certainly a Seaward cooktop is expensive, but Wedgewood makes a two burner cooktop for RVs, and so do some others. They are available, but you seldom see them.

My problem with the folding top is that the time I need counter space is precisely when I am using the range! Sure the folding top helps, but I need some counter top in addition.

By the way, I should have restricted my comments to smaller units. I can certainly understand a full size range and oven in a 30' coach.

That is very similar to mine, but I do think mine is a Wedgewood. I found mine at Colaws RV salvage with a steel pan that is made to recess into the counter top so that the burners are at or maybe just below counter level. This allows a cover to fit over the unit which is almost flush with the counter. I was told they were surplus from Allegro motorhomes.

If interested, you may be able to make it out in the "kitchen" photos - click on the "Photos" button below.

Wow! what a beautiful interior.
Yes, that is the effect we would like to create.
Trashed the old 4 burner oven and would like to find an upscale cook-top.

Exclamation

Marcus,
Let me know what you find in the way of parts. I need to rebuild mine too, but I have a different set of model numbers BT 843S 4ST Don't know if those will help or not. Mine is a 1975 with a build date of 5-29-75
