Occasional Propane Cooktop


Recommended Posts

I removed my Atwood cooktop to make room for my portable induction. The low pressure line is still up there, metered to 11" WC by the whole-coach regulator down on the tank. I'm going to put a quick, quarter-valve up there for an emergency cut-off and a quick-connect with a safety cap.


What I want in a little, 2-burner, like out of a small trailer to use if ever I need a second cook surface, the induction breaks, my battery bank is too low, or whatever. I am going to store it with other small appliances on a roll-out drawer in the cabinet below the cooktop cabinet inset.


My question is how best to enclose that little burner assembly? I'm sure it will come as a drop-in with a regulator of its own for safety. I'm not sure how much to close in the little metal case I'll make. Are a few Oliver's enough, or should I just attach 4 legs to create max air?


For those of you wondering why not just use a portable camping stove, those are high pressure flow, regulated differently, and do not play well at all with inside propane systems. Lots more unburned propane in the house, too, due to the higher pressure and heat.
