Removing LP tank & stove

Hi all here's a good one

Ok you buy a coach ... For all practical purposes you have a all electric coach except for the the stove/range and the big LP tank down below .. Your fridge is residential. So now you want to remove the LP tank and range/stove and put in a electric cook top and another inverter.. Right.... Can this be done and would this be all that would have to be done... I guess you would need extra batteries to.. Input please . Thanks all ok plus you have aqua hot for hot water/heat.
Marc

Take 'em out but leave the gas lines in place in case the next owner wants to use them. Come to think of it, unless you need the space you might leave the tank in- its lack might get in the way of resale.

I'm thinkin' resale will not be an issue. A new owner is not going to go back to propane ... they'll either be happy with your all electric or not and move on. I probably would pull the tank and maybe re-purpose the space for another battery tray. LP lines aren't worth the effort to remove. Sell the tank and stove if possible.

Ya but, Why? With that little bit of propane use that big old tank down below will probley go for a year if not years? If you want to do it I understand it's your decision and I don't care but, it seems like a lot of work and money spent for very little return.
