Norty, I think raw meat may not be good for you?

LOL, We cook a lot outside on grills,electric fry pan and crock pot.. The gas is used primarily to run the fridge when traveling. I keep looking at the indicator expecting it to run out anytime but it is still green.

Also most baking is done in a toaster oven.

Our first tank of propane this winter lasted just over 3 months. We just use it for the stove and oven. We don't use it for heating the trailer or the water tank.

From the Jayco manual

Average consumption of propane. BTU's.
Water heater. * * * * * * * * *8800
Refrigerator. * * * * * * * * 640-1200
Furnace exp/sport. * *16000-35000
Eagle. * * * * * * * * * * * *20000-40000
Range w/oven. * * * * * * * 7100
rear burner. * * * * * * * * * *6500
front burner. * * * * * * * * * 9000
Outside Grill. * * * * * * * *10000
To calculate your propane supply, take the BTU ratings for your propane appliances and divide that into the BTU availability. Each gallon of propane produces about 91,500 BTU's of heat energy.

Hope this helps. It also mentioned that unless your hot water use was high the propane used for it is relatively low. It cautioned that your furnace could use quite a bit in a short order. Which I experienced. I am going to add a heat strip to my AC which I didn't think you could to a ducted system. Would use the furnace to warm the trailer and the heat strip to supplement it. Hope this helps

I should have included that the calculations are based on BTU's/hour. You would only be using propane intermittently. So go figure....
