New stove

We purchased a new lpg stove for our boat and we are getting ready to install it. The one that came with our boat didn't have an oven. The cutout for the stove is exposed fiberglass in the back. I don't know if it was that way originally or not - do we need to put some type of insulation or protect the fiberglass back there before we install the stove?

Thanks - I don't know what we would do without all the helpful advice we have received from this site!!!

You should be ok

without insulation behind the stove. Thar is if it is a stove designed for boats.
You said it was a new stove? Did it not come with instructions for mounting? The only thing I would ne concerned with, if it is gimbaled is there enough clearance so it can swing without hitting the hull.

We bought the stove used so there are no installation instructions with it. It is a marine stove and it is gimballed. The original cutout was for a 3-burner lpg range and the stove we just bought is actually smaller than the original.

Thanks!

"We bought the stove used so there are no installation instructions with it."
If the manufacturer is still in business, they can give you the instructions. At the least I'd make sure it is installed with some stops so it CAN'T hit the hull no matter how hard it swings.
