Question Propane tank

I am acquiring a 2015 185RB and we're trying to figure out generator needs. Is the stove electric or does it use the propane tank? What is the wattage? What is the propane tank even used for?

We have the similar 184BH. In ours the stove uses propane only. The refrigerator runs on propane (with a little draw on the battery for the electronics) and will also run on shore power if available. The hot water heater is propane only. The furnace is propane only and draws from the battery for the fan part of the furnace.

Welcome to the forum! Never seen an electric cook top in an RV. Don't think they've ever been used due to the high power requirements.
