Propane use

2 posts in this topic

I picked up a used Ice Castle 8x18 with a 16k BTU Suburban furnace. How quick will this run through a 20lb propane tank? Will 2 20lb tanks get me through a weekend? Thanks.

bmc2b, I don't have an Ice Castle house. I do have a 6.5'X 16' home built with a 30K Atwood forced air. I EASILY can do a weekend on 1 30# tank and 2 8 year old batteries. Friday night to Sunday afternoon. Before I took 'er out on the lake, I did a 'test weekend' in the driveway. Basically, I lived in the fishouse so I could listen to all the noises and get familiar with what to expect. Glad I did! First trip out was GREAT!! NO surprises Also, I had the security of knowing I could run into the house If I did encounter any problems. You might give that a try. Phred52
