Thank you Jim
I will enquire, on a related note would anyone consider an induction cooktop insert instead of a propane burner? We have a portable induction cooktop that we take with us in our tent trailer and really like its quick heating and the control for simmering.

When I was having my trailer built, I asked for the stove propane line to be installed and capped, but not install the stove. ETI wouldn't do it. If the propane is installed, so must be the stove.

Thank you Donna, so I guess if we ask ETI to install an induction cooktop it would be a full replacement for the gas cooktop. That might be ok, perhaps we would also not install the range hood but instead have an openable window over the sink and an upgraded Maxx fan.

Any Escape owners install induction cook tops?

Best regards,
Barry

They are not allowed to put in gas lines that are not hooked up.

Hi Barry,

We like having the propane cooktop for those times when we don't have hookups (actually we have the oven/cooktop). We cook outside a lot but with the 21 we are out for longer trips and the weather doesn't always cooperate. That being said we sometimes take our Nuwave portable induction cooktop with us. Works great - best of both worlds!

Kathie
PS Love our 21!!

So is the Nuwave 120V?

I guess cookware has to be bought also. Probably only in sets?

A lot of stainless steel cookware can be use on the induction cook top, you have to check with the manufacturer of the both the cookware and/or cooktop,

Have induction cooktop at home. Generally if a magnet will stick the pan will work. With new pans the box will be labeled as to induction suitable or not.

Yes the Nuwave is 110/120 V. Several manufacturers make a portable Induction burner but as Kathie points out they need electricity. I understand that they won't run off most inverters. So if you are without hookups propane is a back up.

Thank you. I saw that that one above uses over 10 amps so too much for boondocking. Maybe there are smaller ones that use fewer amps.
