Propane Use

Question: We are planning a trip in Florida that will include boondocking. We have a 35 foot fifth wheel and will be leaving the AC running during the day since we have dogs inside. Does anyone have any guesses how long our two 30-lb propane tanks will last running the generator and one roof top AC? Thank you in advance!

Answer: We suggest you see this page which might be helpful:

It is difficult to estimate how much propane your generator will consume while running the AC. It depends on how efficient your generator and AC are, what temperature you set the thermostat, the outside temperature, how efficient your insulation is and so on.

You will probably have the best guess by trying it for a few days and keeping tabs on your use of propane by checking it at the tanks.
