2. Rv stoves are horrible to use, with controllin the heat and uneven baking, even with a stone to help out.

3. When is it gonna be done

4. When is it gonna be done.

We use plastic ware, camping is for fun not house work.

Good luck with the mod at any rate.
I agree we use plastic and paper to.My wife does the dishes and I don't care what I eat off of as long as I get fed. But I wonder if you would have enough water pressure to do the dishes and if the hot water tank can keep up with the demand

I would think that this would only be viable when hooked up to a full site. Not much use for drydocking,

As the washer has its own pump pressure is not an issue, the temp of the water is.

120-150 F for everything to work as needed.

just looked at one countertop unit. It uses 3 gallons per cycle. Not the end of the world, but a consideration. We always use dishes when we do (infrequently) eat in the camper vs eating out.

Probable a moe useful appliance than the oven, but maybe not necessary or worthwhile for us.

I do what I am told, if she wants it she get it, as for resale value I can always reinstall it if the next owners want it. and my gray tank is 100 gals, I would never fill it on a long weekend with 3 gals at a time and we never camp at any place for more that 3 nights on our 2 week trip. the oven is useless for us but cleaning plates and cups would be a time saver. we are limited for counter space now and the drying area is almost non existence

One concern. Moisture from the drying cycle. I believe it may lead to window condensation. May be s perfect place to do the install since the range hood can blow some of it out.

GO FOR IT and report back.. I can tell the DW that I am waiting for your report before doing the mod myself.. Win win.

Here's a few choices

Small dishwashers are defined as smaller than 24 inches wide. They can be built into cabinets, attached to the sink via hoses, or there are countertop models. If you have a small kitchen, here are some dishwashers to consider.
FisherPaykel dual-drawer dishwasherChosen by the University of Minnesota's 2009 Solar Decathalon team to outfit their space effcient entry in the contest, the FisherPaykel dishwasher is small and tucks away into cabinetry.
Sunpentown countertopMeasuring just 20 x 15 x 15 inches, this Supentown dishwasher will take up very little space in a small kitchen. It has several wash cycles as well as a 150 watt warm air dry cycle.
EdgeStar 6 place settingIt measures approximately 17 x 22 x 19 inches and can hold plates up to 10.5 inches in diameter. This model expects to use only 200 kilowatt hours per year, 61% less energy than a standard countertop dishwasher. See a video guide here.
Bosch multi-function with built in LEDBosch offers a four part safety net to prevent their dishwasher from leaking all over your floor. It is also slim enough to fit into a narrow cabinet space at only 18 inches wide.
Danby 18 inch full console. Danby makes this model as either an 18 inch wide built in or mobile dishwasher. If you are pressed for cabinet space, an 18 inch dishwasher will fit more easily than a 24 inch dishwasher.

Like I said in another post, learn something new every day. I wish I could talk DH into believing stove is useless. When I was single, it was more often dusted than used. Ahhhhhhh! The good old days!!!!
I guess I shouldn't complain since he is the superior cook and does 95% of the cooking cuz I hate it.
