We are going to take ours out this weekend for the first time but not in the weather you are dealing with. Be careful out there and happy trails to you!

Wink Cold weater propane

Lifeisgood, back in the 1990,s we motorhomed in the winter in North Dakota and Minnesota, and are familiar with cold weather problems. Propane will not flow at -40 degrees and is very thick at -30. The rubber seal on your tank fill gets hard at such low temps and does not seal well to the fill hose. Your best bet would be a truck stop since they do fill large trucks in the winter and would be experienced in the problems involved. We used to stay in the motorhome even at -25! our holding tanks were heated and we had an oversized furnace. We would stop at a Super 8 or Motel 6 and ask what they would charge to plug into the car heater plugs by an empty room. The most we were charged was $10.00 and they would let us use their pool and hot tub. Be careful using the holding tanks because there may be no place to empty them until spring. We would stop at an indian casino with a campground that had heated sewer and water lines and was open all winter. Hope this helps. DACOTAH

Thanks everyone!!!!! We had an excellent time. Our motorhome work very well, no real issues. Except for one thing. One of our compartment doors kept popping open while driving. We'll need to have that fixed before our trip to Florida in 3 weeks.

To answer your question FC Ontario....we bought a brand new 2011 coachmen cross country with bunks. And yes from the same place it's called RV World in Lincoln. We have bought a lot from them, and their very good to deal with. We were going to go to Florida and buy one, but the prices were the same if not a bit cheaper here by the time all is said and done.

Thanks All
