Home electric oven

So...i bought an rv oven used for 250 last week, and just stumbled on this household electricity range up at work for 80 bucks...i know it'll draw more power, but am I gonna regret putting this big guy in my bus? 80 dollars for a brand new electric range....i already told the guys sold and have a hold tag on it, just wanting other opinions

If you have the room and can plug in to power it go for it.

If you always have 50 Amp service and you have space for it you should be fine.

Many of the State and National parks that I have stayed at do not have 50 Amps service. Boondocking would be problematic as well.

The oven says it's takes 3 or 4 prong connector, running watts at 2600 while baking, so I was planning on it being used only with generator running and wiring it up to 30 amp rv receptacle on my 2800w / 3100surge champion inverter generator. Would this work? Owners manual does say 40 amp breaker for oven

watts are watts.. look at the watt rating of each stovetop element and the watt rating of the oven.. also some ovens go into a pre-heat mode where more wattage is required as it runs the broiler and oven at once till it reaches temperature... I know my home range does this and you cannot disable it.. so it may pull more than 2600 during pre-heat.

So this is the spec sheet I found for the white version since this one isn't on our site anymore. Maybe someone can help me understand it better based off this

My head thinks it should work off the genny, but I'm still new to this and don't fully grasp the electrical side yet besides 12v. I believe it should work for range side no problem, but I'm unsure about oven

With a 2600W element(s) in the oven, it should be wired 240V.

Maximum supply on 120V is usually around 1800W.

since it isnt an electronic control it very well may not use a preheat which would be beneficial to you as it would just run one element in the oven.
the stovetop elements look like you can use those for sure separately of the oven.

I'm buying the oven regardless since it's 80 bucks, and I can easily resell for profit if I don't use it, but I would like to....i guess I need to learn more about 30a and 50a and 120/240 so I can figure out what to do. I'm still confused on how to make it work I think from a lack of understanding of 120/240v systems.

So for 240 I would need a 50a plug in? I plan on boondocking a lot with a battery bank and my gas genny

Standard RV hookups are 30A/120V or 50A/240V. So, yes you will need 50A service and a 240V generator of sufficient capacity if you want to boondock.

Also consider that you may want to use the cooktop at the same time as the oven.

I would suggest flipping the electric and installing the propane.
