Re: Converting stove from alcohol to LPG
Two words: KA BOOM!!!!
Do you really want to mess with this? Solenoids and all that are fine, but do you really want a mickey mouse stove? What if you go put water on to boil, then go to use the head for a couple minutes? If that flame goes out, your boat fills with propane. Do you really want to trust your life to a retrofitted stove that wasn't designed to do what you're using it for?
If the mfg makes a retrofit kit that is specifically designed and tested to do this with your exact stove, then fine. Anything sort of that, and I just hope you're not in my marina.
