It also depends on how you use your coach. If you go to a park and stay for a extended time, you pay for the electricity you use. If it gets cool your use will go up considerably. In Texas at our park the electric rate is $0.17 per KWH. We use propane to heat, heat water and refrigerate!

Oops You're right of course. That said, to me the cost of the extra batteries is still very minor - if you didn't have the all electric, you'd probably have 4 batteries, so the difference between all electric and electric / propane is 4 batteries more so probably about $350 every 5 to 7 years which I'm pretty sure is less than we pay for propane (I don't keep track of it closely but I think we usually refill the propane about twice per year and I'm guessing it's often about $50-80. It's also more convenient to change the batteries once per 5 years than to refill propane a few times per year). In any case, it would certainly be a lot less than we pay for other things (gas, camping fee, maintenance, etc).
