RV Propane and BTU’s
This cooktop requires low pressure (11” W.C.) propane for operation. This is achieved with a low pressure regulator which is standard/required on all RV's. If there is not a pre-existing RV propane system, then you have to setup a low pressure propane system.RV Cooktops are designed smaller than household cooktops, which means they produce less heat than the large burners on your cooktop at home. An average household cooktop has a BTU rating of 10,000. Additionally, you will most likely be using this cooktop during your travels with varying elevations. This cooktop is rated for an elevation up to 4,500 feet. Operation above this elevation will reduce the BTU's by 4 percent for every 1,000 feet above 4,500 feet. For example, at 8,500 feet, the cooktop will perform approximately 16 percent less than it's rated BTU's. This is caused by a few factors including the lack of oxygen in the air and the change in the air/fuel mixture.
