The wall next to the stove got scorched. The right burner is way too close. I put an aluminum sheet on the wall to both cover the burned mark and to further protect it from the heat.

I think it was a case of a too large a diameter pan, not a burner too close to the wall. Also, aluminum conducts heat quite well, so it might not stop the wall from heating to ignition point of the wall material if you use the same pan on that burner.

Looks like an overside pan/griddle was culprit

Looks like a good upgrade to prevent damage and a possible fire.

Now upgrade your fire extinguishers while you are at it. The one that came with the RV is a bit sad.

Bill98116, sorry you had this issue. Doesn't make your problem go away but your fortunate the damage was not more extensive. I agree with the suggestion about the aluminum protectator sheet. Aluminum is used as heat sinks,, (transfer heat effectively. My suggestion is to use the alu. sheet again but put a backer behind it with a material heat resistant .
I'm going thru a planning process of replacing my propane stove/oven with an electric stovetop. I've never used my oven and it's only used for storage. The cooktop has three burners ,two in the rear and one center front. The rear burners have a removable top. Having only one burner exposed is a pain in the butt. Back half has the toaster and knife block setting on it . Having TWO exposed burners will be a god sent.
Switching from propane to electric isn't a problem I don't boondock. If I needed the cooktop I'd start my propane generator.
Tying this into the OP's post I worried about burners being close to the back and side wall. As protection I will shield both walls. Although there will be no FLAME the electric burners will produce heat.
I also agree with the theory about a cooking pan/pot was the culprit to the op's problem.

I added a ceramic tile backsplash alongside and behind my cooktop, when I had my fifth wheel.

The aluminum looks sharp. Raise it a 1/4" and put 1/4" spacers between it and the wall and it will be an effective heat shield.

Thanks to everyone for your comments. I have thought about the aluminum conducting heat and causing further damage to the wall. I'll keep an eye on it to see if it gets too warm. I may have to do something different to fix the problem. I'll for sure use smaller pans on that burner.
Bill

There seem to be a lot of trailers without a proper backsplash or wall protection. In my case, I was concerned with grease splatter onto the wood, not heat. I installed some metal tiles from Lowes/Home Depot.

If you're concerned about heat damaging the wall, aluminum will transfer it more readily than the wallpaper behind it. Something more heat resistant, like ceramic tile, I think would be more appropriate.
