    gas range /ele range

    Looking to replace our ele. range to full size gas range. I understand some of the particulars involved, tanks, regulator, line, vent, shut off, alarm/detector. Will have the system installed by HVAC/Plum local shop, in an area familiar with a major HB population.

    Would like tips suggestion things in general to consider b4 hand. I understand the supply line cannot have connector's in the hull, is hose doable or a no no. I will contact my HB insurance agent for particulars also.
    With a micro wave over the unit, I assume this is doable, thinking this is where the vent will placed through the outside wall
    been a lot of years since i owned a gas range, is there still a need for the pilot light to remain on 24/7, not sure where the tech advances are now on gas ranges.... any suggestion on such features thanks.... Kinda all over the place here but just beginning to put it together

    My (marine) gas range has spark ignition at the burners... Can't speak for all of them.
    She's a tired old barge but she's paid for... http://s71.beta.photobucket.com/user...24993.pbw.html

    I realize that, but my guess is that household ranges have a similar technology. Probably just download the instructions/specs of the ranges you are considering. It's common enough, my water heater also has spark ignition, but it is automatic.

    It's your project; it's your homework. The VERY FIRST household range I looked up had electronic ignition, available at Big Box.

    Pilot lights are history, all are electronic ignition.
    In the case of a boat where there is likely to be more breezes I would spend a little extra and get the auto relight kind.

    my brother just bought a full size gas range at home depot sunday for his houseboat. it had the propane conversion orfice with it all for 439$ minus the 10% discount for his boat , they delivered it for free and hauled away the old electric stove.
