converting electric stove top to propane

With a little luck I will be looking to purchase a 2007-2009 Mountain Aire rear bath, preference is 2007 used. Most appear to have been upgraded to the all electric set up. Both my wife and myself do not like electric stove tops. So todays stupid question is "can it be retro fitted back to propane". And yes I know it will have to be done by a dealer or the factory and yes it will not be easy, if even possible. And on further reflection I could always call the factory, but it's winter and a good discussion is always fun..

I figure with Lee, Rv Dude, and Norm, not to mention some of the other excellent in the know folks, I would ask. If impossible then I will be really narrowing my potential coaches.

Hi clubmed98,
With enough time and $s, this could be done. For me, I wouldn't do this. That being said, my wife makes excellent reservations and I cook popcorn in the micro wave. If you follow the sun, consider an outside grill, added to the coach as a built in. The MADP should be pretty well loaded (weight wise). Make sure you have enough weight capacity for the external propane tank. The basement will need to have major modifications so the propane tank is outside, correctly positioned and fastened to the frame. Running the lines and installing the cook top is routine for the professionals. You'll need a propane leak detection unit that should be wired so if the unit fails or is turned off the propane is shut off.
