Adding an LP Gas Range

12 posts in this topic

I bought a used wheelhouse and am looking to add an LP gas range in the V-front portion of the house. Right now the V is empty so I'm assuming with my extremely limited carpentry skills I can frame something out of 2X2's and slide the range in place. Can I use wood as the cabinet or do I have to use some kind of non-combustible material?

Also, the gas line comes in the V front at the floor through a rubber hose. Do I put a T in the hose to split off gas for the stove?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Here are some pics of the range I put in my last house. I framed it up with 2x2's. There were instalation instructions with mine as to the clearences for combustable materials. I don't remember what they were exactly, but the sides were pretty much zero clearence. The back might have been a little more, but that shouldn't be a big deal for you anyway.

As far as the LP line... I used a "T" fitting inside the house to go to both the range and the FA furnace. I used a standard single regulator on the tank outside, and a single line went into the house.

Thanks Ace. Was there plywood along the sides of the oven or did it just sit inside the framing - thus - nothing touching the sides of it?

Also, my 100 pound tank that feeds my Empire 15,000 BTU direct vent heater does not have a regulator on it. Do I need to add one so both the heater and oven get the right amount of gas pressure?

There was no plywood around my range. No need for it in my situation. I don't think it would be a problem though.

About the regualtor... I have never ran an LP appliance without one. I thought you had to, but I'm no expert.

Sapper - thanks for the info and the help. It's greatly appreciated.

How did you make your cabinet doors? Did you cut them out of the facing of your cabinet and glue a wood frame around them?

The doors I made seperate. I made the outside frame, and inlayed the T&G so its flush with the frame in the back.

You wouldn't have any pictures of how you have things wired underneath would you? Not just your stove but all your electrical. Did you install a fuse box and hook everything into there and then hook your battery up to that block?

Sorry I don't have wiring pictures of this house. I sold this one last fall. I am working on a new one right now though, and I have a post on here called "Finally starting my '09 Fishhouse project". I am to the wiring stage now, just trying to find time to do it. I'll try to describe how I do it though for now.

I run all of my lights and stereo off of one set of wires (a power and a ground), and I power the furnace off another set. I do not use fuse boxes. I put an in-line fuse link (I use the ones that take car fuses) in each one of the hot wires. Basically its like 2 sets of jumper cables... 1 set for the lights/stereo... 1 set for the furnace. I use aligator clips as connectors for quick and easy battery changes. They make a good connection too. This may not be the best way to do it, but it works good for me. As far as your range goes, it should not need any power to it unless it has an electronic ignitor or something like that which needs power to work. The one in the picture I posted is an LP range and you light the oven and the burners manually, therefore it needs no electricity to work. Just LP!

I'll post pics on my other post when I start wiring so keep an eye out if you're curious.

You need a 2-stage regulator for any LP appliance or furnace. You only need one for the whole shack.

Thanks for the great advice and help. I certainly appreciate helping a newbie here.

I checked last night. There is a regulator attached at the tank with 1 hose coming into the house. I'm thinking I can splice the hose inside the house and add a brass T to split off to the oven.

Any advice to share to make my stove installation go smoothly?

Again... thanks for everything.

IMO have a Licensed plumber do the splice of the pipe and the hookup. LP can make your house go BOOM if you don't know what you are doing . Cost a few $$$ but what is your life worth ?????

    • Awesome pictures!!!
    •   StephenRamon, Welcome to the forum. Which did you think was Great? Putting the screws in boots or ATV tires? 
    • I was fortunate to see a tanager, blue-winged warbler, and a couple of young cranes all in one morning  on a walk in a park this week.       
    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
