How much propane does a standard size fridge use?

Any idea on how long a fridge would run on a standard propane tank in a motor home?

Well that depends on the size of tank for one thing and also how low you set the temp. To many variables. Later RJD

yes, too much to take into consideration. Answers will range from weeks to months

Just looking for a average guesstimate. A standard size tank that is installed on a 30 foot mh. Fridge set to normal fridge temp. I'm asking because I'm considering have a second 2 way fridge installed in a outdoor kitchen in a new mh.
Wondering if I'm going to have issues with the amount if propane usage.
Would I get through a weekend of dry camping running 2 fridges if that's all that was using propane.

do you realize whats involved in putting a 2 way fridge in an outdoor kitchen? Since the rear of fridge isn't facing the outside you would have major construction to make a ventilation system and would have to run fans that would wear down your batteries. Would be a $3000 fridge by the time your done.

I was thinking the same thing, but I would love to see how one is done.

If you can do the conversion then the two fridges would run a weekend. Later RJD

Nexus is doing the custom kitchen for me. I will run it by them and see what they say.
