The 16.4 oz propane bottle contains 1.02 pounds of propane.
1.02 lbs propane equals 16.320 oz
16.320 oz equals 22.032 BTU’s.
The RMC-8001SS has two settings, maximum and minimum
The Max setting is rated at 8,000 BTU hour.
22.032 divided by 8,000 equals 2.754 or 2-3/4 hours
The Min setting is rated at 4,500 BTU hour.
22.032 divided by 4,500 equals 4.896 or 4.8 hours
One 16.4 ounce bottle will burn 22.032 BTU’s @8,000 BTU’s per hour for a period of approximately 2-3/4 hours and @ 4,500 BTU’s per hour for a period of approximately 4.8 hours.

LOL.... your fuel is not boiling.... the closer propane gets to its vaporization point (-44%F) the less vapor it produces. clean the snow off of the 100# or lay it on its side to give it more surface area for vaporization.

The problem is with the pilot flame and the way that it hits the thermocouple....the flame needs to contact the thermocouple all the time or it cools off and goes out. The heat from the main flame will keep it on when on high fire, but when turned sown the pilot does not keep it hot enough and often will "pull" the pilot flame away from the thermocouple and cause it to go out.
I have had to bend the pilot assemblies and/or the hood or cover over the pilot flame to make it stay on...
This takes time and experimentation and often the installer just does not want to do that because they are contracted by the job and fiddling around costs them money...but it IS their responsibility to make sure the equipment works properly and safely before they leave...
Don't be afraid to raise a ruckus to get your heater working properly...
