We converted our stove to propane a long time ago and do a lot of long 
sailing trips so the oven is important to us.  I also use the oven 
during thunderstorms to protect some of my electronics (Faraday Cage).   
But our RV does not have an oven and we seem to do just fine on long 
trips, using a grill outside just like we do on the boat.  You could 
install a fridge in the stove space and there are off the shelf 12 volt 
units available that will fit. Perfect for the chilled beer or wine!

I have seen other C38s who have gotten rid of the stove and simply pull 
out the coleman propane stove top when the need it. one pound cylinders 
work fine for heating coffee, tea, soup, etc. but do keep a few extras 
on board!

If you are going to replace the stove, please do get a gym-balled one! I 
have two friends with bad burns from non gym balled units.

Good Luck!
