  ...  Congratulations, Ace. 

    Yep, for me too.  And I'm looking forward to seeing the next stages rollout as they happen.

I think that there are no residential gas ovens without auto ignition and control now, for regulatory reasons.  Mine uses a glow plug for ignition and a flame sensor, and computer control.  Sorry, didn't understand your requirement.  Marine or RV it must be, I suppose.  Possibly a small commercial oven might be wall mountable.

Not to be a cynic or beat a dead horse has each battery been tested? Folks rarely realize just how a single bad battery can drive the inverters crazy.

Hi, Muldoon.

I live in Salado, TX in Bell County.  Not too far from you in Fayette Country.

Why do you ask?


Ros, what part of Texas you live in?

We have an Atwood 3 burner stove with oven. If something does boil over, it is contained in the stove top for easy clean up later. I think you're making to much out of possible clean up. Why don't you install a 3 burner Atwood or Suburban propane RV stove and try it out? We've had the same stove now for 20 years without ANY problems. Good Luck, TomC

I already looked at this ENO Wall Oven... it's a .7 Cu. Ft. Capacity. Yikes... I don't think my shoe would even fit in there.

Wall ovens that run on gas are common as dirt.  What dimensions are you after?  Any natural gas oven usually can be used with propane after a change of jets.


Dear Brian,

I'm looking for a simple, medium sized, LP Gas Oven... no electronics involved... push to spark ignition... in black for under counter-top.

I've looked at "Images" tried "Shopping"; even the Verona (made in Italy) looks nice and can be lit with a match, but it is not made for under the counter-top installation.

Also, I can't believe some of the prices... It's just a box with a burner in it.

If you could provide a link, that would be great.

Thanks all for writing!

Congratulations, Ace.  I am glad for you and particularly glad since you have been looking since February.

I hope it all comes together just as you want it.


Thanks for the info Jack.
There's been a turn of events that surprisingly happened today of all days!
It looks like there is a strong possibility that the truck may be in my possession as early as next week! Seems the owner/seller has purchased a race car in Brandon Fl about 20-30 min from me and has offered to deliver the truck to me for the cost of fuel. He plans to trailer his truck down behind the hauler that I'm buying and then trailering the race car back home with his truck! It's a win win for me, I think!
Will know definitely Monday how this plays out!

Thank  you, Robert and for that, you can count on me sending you a p.m. about it.

I really appreciate your having bowed out depending on how I fare.  That is very noble of you.

This really would be my perfect bus and I hope that I can swing it.  I wonder what McDonalds is paying nowadays.  Bye bye to the house, the utilities, the house insurance, the exorbitant taxes for this resort town, the phone bills, the water bills, all of the upkeep for the house and grounds, field mice traps, the INSANE electrical bills, the fuel to go into town to get groceries from out in the country, fence mending and painting, house painting, the mowing of grass and tending to and trimming of thousands of trees, the septic tank emptying charges, no more mortgage payments that I can't pay and the worry of being evicted at any day and strangling a partridge in a pear tree.  Oh, how I will miss it all when I get a bus.  Roll Eyes

I still have too many naysayers about me getting a bus.  As I have said umpteen times before, I don't have a VIABLE choice.

I think that the various boards that I constantly post to, ask questions of and about buses and all manner of other stuff while pestering folks with private messages, asking them to explain this or that, should really chip in and make up the difference to what I can afford, just so they could get  some peace and quiet.  Hah. Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

Oh, I had better make sure that folks know that I am kidding.  Too many have taken me seriously.
I got myself into this jam and I will get myself out of it; no help needed except plenty of advice.

Christmas is coming and by then I hope to have a rig before that but I could swing a bell and have a kettle saying BUS FUND.

Ros; I would appreciate a note if you decide to pass on the Prevost. Not going to muddy waters on any possible deal.  I have owned 3 XL's and have allot of parts and accumulated experience with them. Plan on 4 1/2 to 5mpg without mods.  They are tuff. Might drive 5 ft or last another 200,000 miles. Would be worth a air line ticket to find out.  Plus with the factory hitch they are designed to pull good size trailers. That looks like a 10,000 lb hitch.(standard equip) 20,000 lb was available. Bob
