Does anybody know how much propane the large refigerators that are in the new Seville's use and is that less costly than using electric. *I hesitate to get a larger refrigerator because people have said that they are very costly to run on electric.

I don't know the exact usage, but the capacity of the fridge and freezer wash any of those thoughts from my head. It is almost as good as a residential fridge.

Don't worry about energy consumption. Get the bigger fridge because absorption type fridges don't use all that much gas or electricity. The gas burner is just a small flame that is about a dime in size and maybe a quarter inch high. It would take along time for the fridge to empty a 30# gas bottle. The 120V electric heater is only about 200 to 300 watts. The fridge needs only enough energy to keep the ammonia fluid circulating in the system. There is one caveat about absorption type fridges, and that is, they don't work so well when the daytimetemperatures getabove about 85deg.F. To improve it's cooling ability, I added 2, 12 volt fans at the back of the fridge to move more air up the back of the fridge. Edited by: Hamops

I don't understand the problem with the electricity cost! Do you have to pay a seperate electricial charge at the different RV camp grounds? I usually pay a daily campground charge for the use of the site/electricity/water/etc...being from Florida; I run the A/C on cold and the water heater on elecrticity as well as the refer...

In California if you stay in a park for 1 month or more you have metered electric and because electricity is SO expensive in CA it really is an issue.

Ahousehold fridge of comparable size will use about 5 timesmore electricity than your large rv fridge, but if the electricity rates are an issue, then it may be cheaper to run your fridge on gas.
