On a more serious note, when in a campground with full hookups, I use their electricity and save my propane. Loren

Jack And Nancy from Sarnia were kind enough to provide me with a
Dead Elephant on a couple of occasions. Tasty for sure. When I describe a dark place I usually say darker than a black cat in a coal bin eating licorice.
Happy New Year

As my buddy describes what he like most about my porter - he says it has that great ashtray flavor....

...and I think the dual fuel option is an excellent choice - regardless of what 2 sources you use!

On the same note: When in a campground with full hookups I use both their electricity and my propane at the same time and take almost endless showers. (It takes a lot to get me clean.)

So traveling down US56 today between Lawrenceburg and Madison Indiana - along the Ohio river, I noticed all the power plants billowing out the smoke from the coal. Then I got to wondering "in my house I have a vent-less LP fireplace" and I decided to invent a vent-less coal burning power plant!! Wish me luck!

But seriously - that 2-way water heater - that's one option I would not even think about doing without - just do it!! You can run fully on AC and not even open the LP tanks when your plugged in!

Aha, but if you don't camp where there are power-bushes, then two-way is a waste of money, or will take forever to recoup the upfront cost.
I turn the propane heater on for twenty minutes to half an hour before needing hot water and then I turn it off. Stays hot enough to do dishes for most of the day.
