my first trailer, i only used gas to cook with and heat water (no elec option). i would use 1 bottle/yr. when i bought the new one, the first outing it was in the 40's and down to freezing at night. i used the gas furnace and went thru one 7.5 gal bottle and most of the second. the furnace really eats it.

i have sense installed a heat pump in the fdw hole w/elec 5KBTU heat strip backup. i use the gas heat if that doesn't keep up (which it won't in really cold weather). it made a substancial difference in the propane usage.
