Looking to replace our gas oven with electric

Greetings all,

We have a 2001 Monaco Knight with a gas stove / cooktop. The oven is very tiny and not very efficient and we are considering replacing it with something electric. We purchased a countertop Air Fryer / Convection oven / toaster Oven and I am considering removing the gas part of the unit and building a shelf for this unit below the gas cooktop. Has anyone else done this and how has it worked out for you.

On a previous 01 Ambassador, we did something similar. We removed the factory gas stove/oven/cooktop and replaced it with an Amana gas cooktop only. I then enclosed the space under that and put doors on it for storage of pots and pans. We had a convection/microwave so the oven may have been lite once or twice, it was a glorified bread box/cookie storage. Your idea is very workable. Our experience with a larger toaster oven/induction oven is that some may draw a lot of current and you may not be able to make coffee and use the oven at the same time, just something to watch for. Hope this may help, Happy Trails Bert

The most difficult part of this project will be getting the electrical conductor run from the electrical panel to the cooktop/oven. You will need to add (or share) a circuit breaker too.

What voltage cooktop are you looking at?
The ones I'm familiar with are 240V. That makes the wiring job even more difficult.

This is probably not the kind of input you're looking for... but have you considered countertop induction?
Most of the time I don't want massive amounts of propane heat in the interior of the motorhome and use a countertop induction unit with the propane cooktop covered.
But in cooler weather, I like the option of burning propane and dumping massive amounts of heat inside the MH.
On the standard motorhome circuits you'll run out of capacity pretty quickly. The electrical system wasn't intend for multiple electric burners, toaster oven and a bunch of other appliances at the same time.
