That's a great idea and it's great to be outdoors as well...

Our problem with the two burner unit is that the cooling fans run all the time (seems unnecessary). And now after a year of full timing, the fans are getting noisy.

Our motorhome came with a propane oven/cooktop. We had it removed and replaced with a dishwasher and the True Induction MD-2B two burner cooktop. The wife is much happier with the new configuration.

I've had both electric (not induction) and gas stoves/cooktops in our home. I like the gas/propane style best because its easy to regulate and it regulates immediately. Not like electric which requires some drawdown time.

My reason for the initial post is a coach of interest comes standard with the True Induction and I know virtually nothing about it. So you're comments have been helpful. I'm sure it's like anything else, if that's what you have you'll get use to it and maybe even like it!

I know that many like the all electric coach and I'm not completely sure of that either? Sometimes its nice to have a heat source that doesn't require electricity. I'm sure there are many of you who, like myself, have used the gas oven/cooktop as a quick heat source! But that's for another thread...

IMO the induction is faster and more precise than gas. With no extra heat rising above the pan. Plus no (very little) residual heat when the stove is turned off.

If you have doubts the best thing is to purchase a portable unit. You will take it with you after you get the countertop unit. Walmart sells really economical units. OK but has some issues. We really like the Nuwave. You can get them for around 99 with a pan included. We got a Nuwave Pro 1800 watt unit that really works well for 90 without a pan.

I have just a portable unit I use cooking meals on the picnic table beside my rig and it works just fine, but................. if you want to use a portable unit outside some LED lighting which tells you your cooking level and temperature, etc is very very difficult to see on a sunny day. I'm not sure what the learning curve is all about, not much to learn, but if cooking by temperature setting, just a short time to figure out what settings for eggs, etc; that's about it. Getting a frying pan that has a magnetic bottom can be pricey, pots - no big deal.
