Watch out for rural businesses with hundred of different size domestic propane tanks in their lot. They will usually have a dispensing pump out front.

Thanks--all good info! I have the Pilot app but I had not noticed the bulk propane info! Thanks for the tip. There is a Tractor Supply nearby and a Southern States Farm Supply near our next destination that does have bulk propane so we are good. Thank you all so much! Now we have to figure out how to get the fridge to run on LP tonight so the freezer will be cold tomorrow. We have had no luck so far and the manual is not helping.

Our Costco has it collocated with the gas.

Open the app and touch the yellow box on top left. Use the "Search Locations" tab.

Drop down and enter your state then "Amenities". "Check" bulk propane.

You can use the map mode by touching the button on the bottom.

We tend to favor the KOA camp grounds. Every one that I've been to has a propane filling station. I won't vouch that it is the cheapest, but for a couple of fill ups a year, it sure is handy. If you don't have one of their directories, they have a good website.

Spare Outside Propane Tank

It's nice and convenient to have a propane tank sitting outside so you don't have to use your main RV tank (if you have one).

I use two 40 lb tanks hooked up to a B-B-Q hose outlet with a 5psi regulator. I then swap them around as one gets empty.

A 40lb tank will hold about 9.2 gallons or about 80% of total.

Once filled, it weighs about 75lbs. <<< Just in case you care

Have you tried turning on a stove burner to bleed air out of the supply line before turning on the fridge?

If it is switched to "auto" and plugged into shore power, it will run on electric.
Usually the switch has an Auto/gas operation, but model number of the fridge would help get the right advice.
Unplug from shore power might do it too.

I have not tried bleeding air supply but I don't know why it would have any air in the hose. We have never added any propane yet. We are not parked in an area with shore power. We turned on the generator and switched the auto setting to LP but when we turned the generator off, the fridge turned off instead of continuing on LP.

The manual shows it is for models N64XIM XIMXX and N84XIM & XIMXX. I don't know which one I have. I think the 84 because it is the larger size.

Do a search on the internet for RV Propane Fill Stations.

Last spring when we were in Amherst, Nova Scotia, I needed to refill our coach tank and a grill gas tank. There were several that would swap grill tanks, but the only place around that also filled RV's was the local laundry! They had propane for their fuel and had a fill station on their tank. The seamstress who worked there handled it.

I have an Extend-a-Stay kit to connect the grill gas tank to the coach system. This not only supplements the volume, tank exchanges are much more common than RV fill stations. Also, if I run low, I can swap tanks without having to drive the coach to the fill station.

have you looked at this manual? It looks pretty detailed in my opinion with troubleshooting using the diagnostic mode. Do you have any error faults?
