Newbie question about propane refill

We have had our class A about two weeks and we are wondering about where to have our propane tank refilled. The dealer told us that we could get it filled at Flying J but the one we stopped at only had the exchangeable tanks. Is there another place?

Our home uses propane for heat. When they show up, we have them refill the tank on the coach as well. Can't beat home delivery.

Gotta say - I had the same question when we first got our Class A. There are any number of places that can refill your propane. Most places that fill bottles will have a much longer flexible hose that can be attached to your built in tank. A couple of example - Costco, some hardware stores, lots of marinas, Uhaul, Truck Stops with RV lanes.

There are more sellers out there than you would originally believe.

Most Camping Worlds have propane, and many RV parks also. I did run into a time where the local company wouldn't fill tanks attached to the RV while in the park, because of fire liability (but they would fill at their bulk yard, go figure). I think the Good Sam cell phone app has a list of services like propane, with the locations mapped out.

I've never seen a Costco that has propane for sale, but I haven't been in all of them in WA or OR either.

Also most Southern States, Farm & Home Supply, and a lot of Ace Hardware Stores in rural locations have propane.

Tractor supply is the cheapest I've found In our area but not all of them will fill motor homes for some reason. Most flying j truck stops have fill stations if all else fails google propane fill stations but I would call them to make sure you can get in and out with a large vehicle especially if your towing a car.

George: if you're in Indian Rocks Beach, the u-haul storage place in Largo has propane as do most of the u-haul storage lots around Tampa Bay. Also, if you're ever headed up I-75, the Flying J at FL52 exit has propane.
