Monthly Electrical Cost

This has probably been asked before, and I know it will vary, but can anyone give me a ballpark figure for electricity costs per month during longer term stays? Say in central Georgia from January to March? We would be in a 33 foot TT. Thanks.

ronjohn99 I can tell you last year we stayed in the Rio Grande Valley for a month in a 28ft. trailer with 30 amp and it cost us $67 for the month. I don't think we used the air much if at all. We are in the Valley again this year in a 34 ft. Reflection TT and we have run the air a few times. The first two weeks of electric cost us about $19. Your costs will vary depending on the rate they are charging you. I asked the same question last year and was told by the Park people probably $100-$150 per month. We don't have washer/dryer, dishwasher, and only one AC 15,000 BTU Hope this helps.

If you use propane heat, it won't be bad at all, but you'll burn through some propane. If you use electric heat, maybe $75-$100 depending on how much the park charges for electricity and how warm you like it. There's a big difference between 50 degrees and 75 degrees of warmth.

Great, thanks for the responses....that at least gives me something to go by. I realize there are a lot of variables and we will be able to control some of them (just not the weather! )

Utility usage depends mostly on your style. We are staying in the RGV area (Mission, TX) and I can share 3 examples here at 15 Cents/KW. A 30 TT couple used $15 last month, no air/heat and they eat out alot (refrig and water heater on gas). We have a 34' fifth wheel and our bill was $44, we used AC a couple of days and space heat for 1/3 of the mornings, res refrig (energy efficient) and elec water heater. Still we are conservative in our elec usage. A 35' MH had a $160 elec bill, they leave AC/heat pump on all the time (windows always closed) and admitted they left the engine block heater turned on last month by mistake.

I used my electric heat and the cost for January was $109. My heater does not come on until sometime after midnight and stops running by 8am. I'll be using propane for the month of February.

Our electric bill is usually $60-75/ month depending on the weather. Were usually in Florida for the winter but in Arizona this year. Its a bit colder here but weve been doing a lot of boondocking and running the heaters off the generator.
