Inverter, Fuses, Power Location

Purchased a 26.5 ft, Eagle HT Fifth Wheel. In my excitement I overlooked the location of the main power unit inside. Itís located directly below the oven. Is this something I should be worried about when using the oven? Kind of afraid it could overheat the main power supply. If anyone has such an arrangement, have you had any issues? Opinions?

Our panel is below our oven, also, just in a different unit. The oven seems very well insulated, and any residual heat is directed up the back side, and out the top vent at the rear of the stove top. You shouldn't have any problems.

We have had our 27.5RKDS Eagle HT for a little over 2 years now without any issues concerning the converter. It has the same converter location.

I suspect your oven is similar to mine. We have a storage cabinet under our oven, and you cannot feel any heat.

No an issue at all. Just about every RV I've own has the converter assembly under the oven. Heat rises. Converter is in its own housing and center with a fan. There is a good air gap between the two.
