Marine stoves have a number of safety features that are intended to allow them to operate safely at angles of heel and in the confined space of a cabin. These features would not be present on a RV stove. I imagine that putting an RV stove aboard might void your insurance in a fire as you have installed a device that would not meet the required marine safety standards.

This is one area where I feel VERY strongly that you need a marine-designed item. You need the stainless material that will be in a marine stove and not in an RV unit. You need the safety items in a marine stove made for the marine environment.

In many ways items from land can be used successfully on a boat, this is not one of them.
