I have a 13' Scamp.With a Domefic 211 Frig. How many HRS would a Full 20 lb propane tank last, if I run the frig on Max.

I pick April 28 at 3pm.

Seriously, would love to know this if anyone has this info. I'm on the original 20lb tank over a year, but only about 8 days boondocking where the fridge was run on propane.

Don't adjust it to maximum and leave it like that as everything inside the fridge will be rock frozen in about 36 hours or so! Adjust it according to the inside (trailer) and outside temperature. It also depends on how often you will open the door and how rapidly you close it.

As an average if no propane is used for anything else and the adjustment is in the mid range I would say at least 3-4 weeks.

Heres what I found out. A 20 lb propane tank has enough energy for 374000 BTU's,
a propane Frig uses 625 BTU's. (Domefic 211)
TOTAL HRS 598 or about 25 Days at max setting.
I agree with Normand Choiniere-NEVER SET AT MAX SETTING. Everything will be frozen solid. You should get well over 30 Days at 3/4 setting.

I just went and filled my propane tank. We've run the fridge a total of about 9 days and it only was down 1.3 gal.
So I would figure that it would make it about 25-30 days at that rate. Fridge was run on mid settings and some was last summer in the heat.
