I generally turn ours off when we are at our summer seasonal as it really makes a major difference in our monthly power bill plus we only need it for dishes and hand washing as our CG has clean and unlimited hot water for much better showers. If traveling, it goes on when we park and off when we leave as it will stay hot to very warm for many hours with the supplied 3-4 inch thick Styrofoam cover plus we have paid for the use of the electricity in our daily rate. Propane will be used only occasionally - i.e. if we want to run the a/c, microwave and brew up some coffee and watch the tube at the same time on 30 amps while one os showers.
I have a question on reefers, electric or propanr, but will start a new thread
