Refrigerator on gas?

How long will a refrigerator run on gas only? I have a full 7 gallon tank of propane and wonder how many hours I can get.

A related question I've been wondering. To work on gas, the refrigerator also needs the 12v battery system to be in good working order, doesn't it?
Thanks,
T

JohnB is on a distinguished road
A 7 gallon tank, AKA a 30# LP tank. If full, it will run a RV fridge a really long time. It should be in weeks to maybe even months if that is all that is on.

The RV fridge does need 12 VDC to run on LP unless you have a really old gas pilot one. 12 volts runs the control board, gas valve and the igniter . The battery will go dead if not on shore power or recharged before the 30# tank will ever run out.

How many hours are you trying to run it and in what outside heat/temperature?

If you really need to to be close on the usage, will need the model, make an year of the fridge to find out the BTU rating and back into how many BTU's are in the LP tank and at what outside temp.

Mine ran at least 3 weeks when I forgot to turn it off once I would say months. The flame is tiny not much bigger then a candle flame. Running hot water furnace and fridge I use maybe 30# a season. Mine is a manual spark light so it needs no power.
