Is there an Ap for LP stations? I've seen a couple for specific brands but not one for all stations. Like you find with Gas Buddy for example. That would be great if there is one?

You can look for LP available locations Ina truck stop guide, they will also tell you weather there is a dump station, RV parking, what restaurant and kid they have a store, mechanic on duty tire shop etc. As well as which exit to take, WORTH THE MONEY. I ALSO have checked my campground directory they will say if they have LP, YOU DON'T have to stay to buy there to fill up.

IMO it is easier for them to add the ASME tank as it is able to be placed in the center of the bay out of the way. Portable tanks would have to be placed near the bay door for ease of getting it in and out.

If you have a propane generator I believe you need to have a liquid feed. Not possible with a 20lb bottle. Since more than half of the installations would require an ASME tank it is more practical to install in all MH.

In our RV park there is a propane delivery service that will fill the ASME tanks.
