Since my seasonal site is 30 amps I use propane to heat the water. In cold weather I run two 750 watt ceramic heaters and set the furnace thermostat at 62 degrees. I only go through a 30# tank every couple of years and about the same for the outdoor grill. I wouldn't want to do without propane.

Some people camp without any conveniences, just not my idea of fun. Personally I would not want to be dependent on electric hookups.

My other RV has a built in generator, unless I need to use the microwave or A/C it's not run where there are no hookups.

To each his/her own.

I have "Camped" in temps as low as 11 Degrees (THank you but that is a bit chilly) .. Again I use Electric as much as I can due to ... It's pre-paid all I can "eat" but I have to pay for propane. and that is the ONLY reason.

I use Propane when I have to so I keep the tank at least half full.

No fun running out of gas in the middle of a cold night. Been there. Done that Do not wish to do it again.


Home is where I park it.

IMO for what it is worth
IF you want NO propane
buy a new all electric DP with Auqua HOT, a roof full of solar, and a 2000ampHrs of lithium batteries

and park it in a 'RESORT' with 100amp service

I camp year round so not using the propane is out of the question.

Just came back from a week in western Montana and glad I had the propane, we had to fill the 30 pounders twice in a week. While I don't like it it's part of the cost of the freedom to do what I do.

Has anyone ever stopped using propane completely ?


Yes- we did when we bought our then new all electric coach in 2013. Took a little getting used to , but 5 years later we are still going without propane.
