Newbie here: Any suggestions about propane appliances?

Hello again everyone. Total newbie here with lots of questions. Tonight's question is about appliances. I'm thinking about installing all propane alliances...refrigerator, cooktop/oven, & on-demand hot water heater. Any suggestions? Advice? Pros? Cons?

I'll appreciate any & all advice I can get. Thanks in advance!

Just make sure you carry enough propane capacity to fuel them all, you don't want to be running into town every other day to refill your tanks.

Make sure to get appliances that are frugal with fuel usage.... also make note of how much fuel they use and kind of figure out how many hours a day it will be used, add all those figures together to get a daily usage figure, then you'll know about how much you need to boondock for a week or two at a time, and size your tank(s) appropriately.

The same principle will apply to your battery bank when you get ready to work on that.

Also decide if you want removable tank that you run into town with your toad, or permanent mounted tank on the bus frame. Removable type are smaller but easier to work with.
