We've been camping with a travel trailer for almost a decade. One thing I never quite understood why most campers when plugged in with campground electric use there propane stove inside. We always carry a small Walmart type hot plate, plug it in to cook. If the evening is warm we run an extension cord to the picnic table and use a hot plate there. Why use your propane when you are paying for the electricity at the site? And when plugged in we always use a small Wamart electric heater when needed rather than the blast furnace type in the trailer.
But everyone's different.

To each their own.  I use a hotplate and electric heater also when using campground electricity, also have a gas grill.
