In the quest for the perfect RV lifestyle at times when you run out of space your forced to re-purpose previously used parts of your RV to better suit your needs. A place that is underused in most RV’s is the oven. Below you will find several examples of RV mods of the existing oven and the results after converting that space into a dishwasher. There are many ways to tackle dishwasher RV mods but each of the below ideas offer its own unique benefits.
RV Mods: Stove-Oven to Dishwasher Conversion – Cooktop Combo Conversion
This oven RV mod removes the cook-top/oven combination unit and replaces it with a dishwasher and standalone RV cook-top unit in a 2008 National Pacifica . In this RV mod the opening had to be widened to accommodate the larger profile of the dishwasher from edgestar. The reported all in costs of this RV mod (excluding labor) was $450 and took one day to complete.
RV Mods: Stove-Oven to Dishwasher Conversion – Dishwasher with Storage Drawer
This RV dishwasher mod is very similar to the one shown above but in this Fleetwood Revolution the owner took the now unused vent space below the oven and converted it into a much need storage drawer for pots and pans. There was also no cook-top to replace as the RV’s counter-top runs over the dishwasher.
RV Mods: Stove-Oven to Dishwasher Conversion – Conversion to Pull Out Dishwasher
In this 2010 Damon Daybreak 3204 Sport the owner removed the previous stove and RV cook-top and replaced it with a drawer dishwasher and reinstalled a standalone cook-top in its place.
The great aspect of any of the above RV mods is that they can be completed in a single day as long as you have the right materials, parts, and know how to make all the connections work. In this post there is no mention of the waste-water, water, or electrical connections on purpose as they will also be custom based on your particular RV. Generally speaking the electric should already be accessible, but the water connections will need to be custom ran to connect with the sink in most cases.
