Anyone added a propane dryer?

My Sandpiper F37sp is only 30amp so I don't think I should overload it with an electric dryer, so I'm thinking about a used Kenmore natural gas then get the LP conversion kit.

Has anyone ever dealt with converting a NG drier to LP? Any tips on what to look for or to avoid?

If you are buying the dryer brand new you can select which way you want it set up for. It is just a matter of changing the orifice. If your going with something that's already set up for NG you can get the propane orifice from an appliance repair shop.

I converted my home dryer to propane. The kit consisted of an orifice and a replacement cap on the regulator located inside the dryer. The cap had a rod in it that forced the reg into a bypass condition.
Usage...on a large home drier, we got 5 loads from a bottle that is 2/3 the size of the one on an RV.
I've thought abt doing it in my trailer but went with the slow all in one. I have 50amp and even thought going with a 220 dryer but not every campground has 50 amp.
I would think u would get 15 or more loads out of the small dryer from a 40# bottle.
