Does it work on propane

Now that I have a MH I'm selling my TT. I guy came to look at it today that has never owned one. He would like to buy one to put on a lot of land he has upstate that has no water or electric. So I was explaining everything to him as he had a lot questions. When I showed him the microwave he wanted to know if it worked on propane. He also asked if the AC unit worked on propane.

Yep, a propane fired generator would work everything.

Agree. However, as a clarification, a M/W and air cond will not run on propane, they need A/C power...that a propane (or gas or diesel) generator can provide.

Yes most of the time propane is sufficient for the generator which then runs everything else.

Micro on propane? What a novel idea! Wish I had something like that...my micro doesn't leave much room for food to cook once building the charcoal fire in the bottom

This thread makes as much sense as a battery operated generator.

A good RV Salesman would say Of Coarse it will. And you can pull it down the road with a compact car!

He may have, and I personally think he probably did, been asking if it would work on a propane fired generator, but formed the question poorly.

I have more respect for him than those of you that formed snide remarks without knowing his real intent.
