Looking at a 2017Galeria.  It has the propane generator.  How long can you dry camp running A/C?

Until the propane runs out!! Propane fired generators are a bit propane hungry and whatever you have may have to be shared with the fridge (small user) (or use 120V from genny (1300-1400 watts), the water heater, (or again use 120V), the stove/oven.  There is no free lunch!!

You will more likely be limited by the very low capacity of the black tank, (only 12 Gallons).

In Canada it is different!  Like cooler!  How about The South where it shares with a fridge and has to last three days (and nights)!

Not much different really but here in Mtl. we can easily reach 90-100º in the summer but you may not need to run the air conditioner in some other places. The major limiting factor will be black tank it is still only 12 (US) gallons according to the Coachmen specs.

Considering that propane has about 80% the efficiency of gasoline you will burn a lot more propane over any given period of time when compared to a gasoline powered generator. Compare this with your current use in the Allegro.

(1 gal of propane contains 91500 BTU, 1 gal of gasoline contains about 114000 btu of energy. Many Gas powered generators burn about .6 to .7 gallons/hour (will vary with load, of course)) .6 gal gas/hour at 1.25 efficiency will require .75 gal of propane for the same work.
