Our hot water in the caravan is gas, we use our grill for toast, and we don't take a TV with us on holiday, as we probably watch far too much at home and it's nice to get away from it. We do sometimes take a laptop on holiday but we don't use it much, only really for looking up places to visit, and we usually charge phones in the car when we go out.
Is that the van, or your choice to use gas for cooking and heating? We only use the gas for the oven and hobs - mainly hobs. If im paying a fixed price for leccy, im getting my moneys worth!
I'm with you all the way there Mick, if I'm paying for electric anyway, and not on metered electric, I will use it for all that I can.
However, as ours is an old caravan our water heater is gas only so we don't have a choice there. We have a gas heater but don't use it much, mainly because we only tend to go away when the weather is warm enough during the day. If it's likely to be chilly at night though we use an electric convector heater. No way would I leave a gas heater on overnight, and if I'm paying for an electric pitch anyway........
Regarding kettles, we have a small electric camping kettle but it doesn't hold much so we tend to mainly use it when we want small cups. If we want a decent mug of coffee or tea, or if there's more than the two of us, we use our large kettle on the hob.
