Locating propane for motorhome

Has anyone noticed it is hard to find propane sites that will fill motorhome tank in Utah and parts of Arizona? No problem anywhere if you want bottles filled, but found the Flying J's truck stops chould help. Just a thought, Roger

I'm not a real fan of KOA's but I think most have propane fill sites as do many other commercial campgrounds. You don't have to stay there to buy the propane.

In addition to sometimes at campgrounds (cost normally higher but convenient) we normally find a local distributor near our route and fill up at their distribution center/office. The cost is generally good and, because you will get fill from the same area they use to fill the big delivery trucks, access is easy in and out. Distributors are normally only open on week days and sometimes limit public access hours. A phone call can find out this information.

Whats the going rate across the country?

Here in Spokane, I see postings for $2.79 at a Flying J. In Post Falls it's $2.99 at the Flying J just off the freeway.

Of course, with the Flying J Advantage card we get $.10 off per gallon.

Most U-Haul trailer Rental Places sell propane.

Well.. When I'm in AZ, I usually am going to Quartsite and there is a Flying-J just west of there so........

The thing to do is let your fingers do the walking through the GOOGLE pages.

GOOGLE: Propane {zip code}

That is the word propane followed by the 5 digit zip code where you are parked.

LOOK for a wholesaler.. They will often have a propane delivery truck in their ads.

Depending on the laws where you are.. They may deliver.. Most do not deliver to motor homes though.. But most can tank you up just fine. OFTEN they have better prices (NOT ALWAYS).

That's what I found; that here in Spokane they won't, or can't fill an RV tank from the delivery truck. They told me that the truck pump pumps too fast for a small RV type tank. That maybe why they don't deliver to RV's in other areas.

PS... I just filled up with propane at Post Falls, Idaho's Flying J. It was $2.99 minus the $.10 per gallon discount.

BTW... Diesel was $4.03 minus the $.03 per gallon discount.

Only time we were able to get propane filled by a delivery truck was when we had to have the tank at the house filled as well. The driver told us that they won't go out for just an RV but had no problem with filling the RV if they were also filling a larger tank.

Personally, we just fill up at campgrounds as it is far more convenient even though it is usually a little more costly.

The RV parks I've stayed at in Yuma, Tucson, and Phoenix area have Propane trucks that deliver to the site...usually specific days of the week.

Here on the Navy Base at Corpus Christi, we have propane trucks from 2 different companies come through the RV park each week- they honk and folks run out and say "Hey! fill me up!"

Super convenient. Also SUPER fast- took like 2 minutes for 18 gallons.
