Any idea (ball park) if it's 35 for low and 60 for high and we keep the camper at 70 do you think 2-20lb propane tanks will last for Fri-Mon?? I do plan on taking a plug in heater as well to help out.
Never really used the furnace so don't have any idea how fast it will eat the propane.
Thanks so much!!!
Yeah, I would think you would be OK with some to spare. Do you plan on using the hot water heater on propane (which doesn't use a whole lot), or cooking on the stove a whole heckuva lot?
You could always just open one cylinder and when it runs out, that should give you a good estimation of how long the next bottle should last once you switch over to it. Of course, camping factoid # 7 states that you only run out of propane at 3 AM in the morning when it's below 40 degrees. That's always the funnest part of a camping trip, in having to go outside and open the second cylinder at that time/temperature.
