I'm just guessing how long mine lasts. I like empirical numbers and data like 14 days/24-7/30#. I do know that I only fill each 30# bottle once a season. We dry camp or boondock from April to November. Use the heat conservatively and of course the water heater. A total of about 5-6 weeks in the camper. When at home, its plugged into shore power. My fridge is the original Dometic from 2000, and may not be the most efficient.

I should have added that after we burned in the furnace for 15-20 minutes, it has only been run about 30 minutes total as we use an Eden Pure and at night, the furnace blower if temps are expected to be below freezing which is rare in FL where we spend winters. We also keep ours plugged into shore power 24/7 except when towing (naturally).
