Pretty good idea. I saw it on another forum but can't remember where. It would be pretty easy to do, depending on piping, etc. for the dw (not to be confused with the DW, although they are one and the same).....Ow, stop hitting me...

Try this

RV Mods: Stove-Oven to Dishwasher Conversion - Re-Purpose Unused Oven

I have never done anything like this, in fact out new motorhome doesn't have an oven because we never use it

hope this helps

Really, does not most RV's have a dishwasher isn't it the round or oval shaped white thing under the sink that also holds paper cups and plastic forks. The biggest problem I have is it just takes so long to fill up due to fact the wife always has a new place she wants to go have dinner.

I am the dishwasher and sure am not going to fit into the oven space.

Glad the CSMRetired posted something helpful.

Seems like tapping into the plumbing (water source and waste water) would be the biggest challenges to overcome.

I wonder if the water heater will supply enough water at temperature
(120 -150 F) suggested by GE.

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

Good luck with the mod at any rate.

our water heater will supply hot water as long as I have propane in the tank (tankless water heater)

Have you considered resale/trade value? I would think most would prefer an oven to a dishwasher. Plus it would fill the waste tank faster.

I have seen some decent countertop dws. Whirlpool does at least one. It could be rigged into the opening. Seems like a decent idea long as you watch grey tank level.
