Thanks for all the responses. We do intend to use a microwave and now that I am reading about it a bread machine. Anyone happen to know how many watts the breadmachines draw at their peak? We have an 800ah house bank and a 2500 watt inverter
One of the challenges for us is propane storage
. The locker on our boat will not hold 20lb bottles. I need to take some measurements but believe it will hold (2) 10 lb bottles. Im hoping based on the above posts that we can manage to get a month out of 20lbs.
My prior boats have all been CNG or alcohol and the cruising has been mostly weekends with a week or two here and there. So I dont have much of a guage.
I have a Hillerange stove with oven
that I am hoping can be converted to run propane
as I hate to have to buy a new stove. Anyone know of a source for burner orifices or conversion ktis for a Hillerange?
Im also concerned about adapters. We initially plan to cruise
and Central America
. Are there difficulties getting horizontal tanks
filled versus vertical ones? Are there a few adapters I should carry for this cruising ground or do most filling places have the adapters?
I like the idea of being able to screw on a camping gas propane bottle for emergencies but we really like to use the grill
so Im pretty sure we will plumb that to the main propane system. Separate solenoids and all of course.
