I don't have a real number, but it's a very low draw...Maybe +/- 0.5 amps

Next to nothing unless actually using 12v mode for operation.   Something on the order of 1/4 amp except during actual ignition cycle (powers the DSi sparker) or when the door is open and interior light is on. Still well under 1.0A even then.

I think that he is asking about a 3 way refrigerator that can use 12 volt power to heat the coils, as well as 120 volt or propane. If so, the draw is more likely to be in the range of 10 amp to 15 amp.

the op states "when running on propane"...

mine consumes about 18 Watts, most of that is the gas valve so it would appear..

12 volt draw on Propane. likely about 1 amp or less
12 volt draw on 120 vac less
12 volt draw on 12 volts 20 amps give or take a bit.

Thanks for your responses. Yes, just the draw when operating on propane.
Water pump draw?
