We have a 15btu AC, water heater is propane, lights are led's.
What should a monthly summer power bill cost? I've heard no more then $30-$40.
They are trying to charge me for 1200kwh's. Crazy almost as much as my house
You didn't mention where the RV was parked but that Air conditioner is going 2 Kw an hour itself,.
Don't forget the TV, the Fridge, The stereo, etc. and why would you run your hot water heater on propane when electric is available. propane is a lot more expensive than electric.
take that 1200Kw and divide that by 30 days and then 24 hours a day and your only talking 1.6 Kw per hour average. divide that by 120 volts and you are using an average 12 amps draw on average.
Makes one wonder if the reason for the usage figure is due to the fact that the park owners have been burned in the past by people saying they would minimize their Air usage then run it constantly. There isn't near the insulation in an RV as there is in a house and they get hotter a whole lot faster.
