Cheap Propane

If needing propane find the local Tractor Supply store. I just read they have the lowest price across the US. The writer said it was $1.79 a gallon in New Mexico, I called the local store in Springfield, Illinois and they were asking the same low price. Bring you empty as they do not exchange them.

THEY EVEN FILL MOTORHOMES!!!

No more $3.25 a gallon for me!

I've been using them for more than a year now. This month it was 1.89 per gallon in Colorado. Why go anywhere else?

We tried using TSC several times and none would do motor homes. We stopped wasting our time going to them.

Don't pay attention to the online price, The online price for my store says 2.49 but when i call its actually 1.89. With the constant price changes for propane I don't think they update the price online.

Will they fill a motorhome? Although it's probably not worth driving a gas hog from Brighton to White Lake to save on propane. See you have an 2004 35U, on a Workhorse chassis. Ours is an 2003 35U on the Workhorse.

This topic has come up several times, and I always say, why go anyplace else? I've never been to one that didn't fill motorhomes....or fork lifts....or some government cars. But not all are easy to get into without unhooking. Just like any place some are better than others.

Kind of funny/sad but true story, I went to one and asked to fill my motorhome. This young kid (everyone is young to me anymore!) came out and asked where the tank was. He said he had done "hundreds" and spouted off like he was an expert. I said under the coach about midship. He started to slide under. I told him I had a remote fill and he said "good, because I can't fit under there". He looked at the fill and said there is something blocking it and before I could say anything he proceeded to poke his finger in the fill valve. Of course gas escaped and just about froze his finger off!

Next thing I knew words that would make a sailor blush came out of his mouth, and he dropped the hose and ran inside the store yelling. A few seconds later the manager came out and asked what happened. His employee had quit and ran outside to his car and was sitting in it. I told the manager, and he said "well shi... he wasn't trained or certified to fill propane. Why on earth tried to do that is beyond me." We have 3 trained employees he should have gotten to do it, I guess he thought he would have gotten on my good side by thinking he would act as a self starter. This is just his second day on the job." I told him he needed to check on the boy and maybe take him to a doctor, because he was sure hurting and even though he was not the sharpest knife in the drawer, it was a workplace injury.

Yes they do fill motorhomes the store is on M 59 north side. Not a bad drive if you want to exercise the coach and genset. Also we do love our 35u.
