Flying j is the only stop where I can count on finding propane on the interstate. However they are sometimes not on my route. Does anyone know an alternative? I called just about all the major travel centers

Hi Trose,
Welcome to iRV2. KOA's usually sell propane. If you get the computer version of the TL CG Directory, one can quickly find a CG, on your route that sells propane.

Around here even some tire dealers and gas stations sell it, let alone some of the truck stops and campgrounds. Last I got was $2.299/gal. In WA state they have to use pumps with a temperature compensating pump so you get what you pay for.

Many campgrounds, Many other truck stops, (Loves, Pilot, T/A) RV dealers, U-Haul. and if you have the time

GOOGLE: Zipcode Propane

(Replace zipcode with the 5 digit number).

Look for propane dealers with delivery trucks on their home page.

Here in SC many ACE Hardware stores have helpful propane men. (Take off on their ads) and the last place I actually FILLED the tank... Used to be my Dad's farm 40+ years ago when I was growing up on said farm.

I always fill my propane tanks at our local Southern States Farm Supply place. Also check out Tractor Supply. I never filled the coach up there, but I regularly use them to fill my BBQ tanks. They are about 1/2 the price of the exchange places, and they will fill any size and any quantity. You pay by the gallon. Next time I'm there I'll check and see if they have a hose long enough for the coach. I also had my home propane delivery people fill the coach up when they were here filling the house tank.

Finding propane can get frustrating if you are on the road a lot. I got an Extend-A-Stay:


This allows me to take an extra 20lb (4.5 gal) bottle for a backup for my 26 gal tank. There are 1,000s of gas stations which carry propane exchange bottles of this size. They are also handy when camped to get them filled or exchanged without moving your rig. Actually, we are camped now in Fl. They can fill bottles or your rig, but you have to take it to the facility. So I just take my bottle and leave my rig full for the trip home or for emergencies.

Many U-Haul Truck Rental places will have propane and sometimes at very competitive prices, but sometimes not.

We go to their website and put in the location and check the propane box. You can then see all the U-Haul locations in that area that sell propane and it will even give you the price they are charging at that time.

Click here for the web page to enter a location

Here's an example when I put in locations in Las Vegas for instance and take for an example, the location at 3969 N Rancho Dr. click here for their information page for that location which will give price, hours, services, etc.

Usually, U-Haul lots will have plenty of room to maneuver a Class A with toad but we usually check the Google satellite image of the location to make sure. You can call them too, if you wish.

Here's the satellite image of the location referenced where you can see their propane tank: click here

As stated above, most of the large truck stops have it. We used an extend a stay back when we had a gas coach and that helped alot. With Hydro Hot now we seldom ever need to fill the propane. Loves station in Benson AZ has propane for $2.99 today.
