I have a 2016 Fleetwood Excursion and had hoped to have a dishwasher installed in the place of the oven. This is very close to the sink ( water source & drain ) but is separated by a set of drawers. My RV service center has told me that since the coach wasn't plumbed for a dishwasher they can't add it.

Has anybody added a dishwasher in a similar situation to mine? It doesn't seem like such an issue that the water and drain can't be connected to the kitchen sink, but what do I know [emoticon]

Any feedback would be appreciated !

We did on a 99 same setup, but you will need a counter top put over the dishwasher and you must find one that is short enough to go into the space you have. This one is for the drain and water is just as easy. Good luck.

I think they are saying they dont want to do the work. Sticks & bricks, I thought maybe 3 hours to instal. Surprize to me, already over hours. Find "dead" space to run your lines. New dishwasher has all install directions. Hardest parts, extending elec and hanging the lines thru cabinet.

I did ours, we have a drawer stack between, no big deal. I have pictures, but can't post them here. PM me and I send them to you.

It shouldn't be hard. The biggest line is the drain and that is about 1" in diameter. I'm sure the drawer don't go flush up against the wall. There should be a couple inches or more behind he drawers when they are closed.
Sounds like the shop didn't want to do the work.

Very simple except for what to do for counter.
I/2 shark bite tee,1/2 shark bite x 3/8 compression straight stop,dishwasher tailpiece,brass dishwasher 90*(3/8 male ipsx3/8x3/8 compression)some soft copper 3/8 tube. Start at sink cabinet and drill 1-1/2 hole in bottom corner and next one until you reach old stove location. Run your copper and hose change tailpiece cut in tee
with valve. Loop the drain line from the hole you drilled in the sink base cabinet and loop it up to the under side of cabinet down to dishwasher tailpiece connection and use hose clamp to secure. If possible zip tie up the hose that you looped up to the under side of counter.

The top is easy if you have a cover for the oven you use that and glue it with the a kit if Corian type. If not enough get some color that goes or you like and glue between the pieces to make larger if need. When sanded it will look like it was made that way. You might get lucky and find the right color.

Thanks guys for all the great suggestions. Yes, I think the shop didn't want the hassle but it seems easy enough. I have the original stovetop from the new rig to reinstall for the top. Wife wanted the stove but then learned how to use the convection oven - much better, quicker oven and don't need 2 appliances ! I appreciate the help !

In place of the oven, I think you can just get the stove top portion of the oven rather than trying to figure out a counter top. Ours has the old fashioned style cooktop with front controls, but no oven underneath.
