Need a make and model on the stove. Very unusual to have an electric stove in a motor home.

Specs listed below

You could wire hard wire that with 14/2 (with ground) cable on a 15 amp 2 pole breaker.


Specifications Volts: 240 Volts Amps: 10 Amp 6-1/2" Burner: 2 (1,200 Watts) Hard Wired: Yes Dimensions Overall Width: 21" Overall Depth: 12" Overall Height: 2 5/8" Cutout Width: 20" Cutout Depth: 10 3/4"

Be advised that not a RV parks have 50 amp, 240 volt service.

Thanks but I belive I will use 12/2 (with ground) cable on a 20 amp 2 pole breaker. I know not all parks have 50 amp serive but I will not need to worry about that as I belong to a park system with all parks having 50 amp service.
Thanks again

12/2 with 20 amp is fine.

Also noticed that unit comes in a 120 volt model (uses 20 amps) that might be more universal.
