Paul,

That RV dealership doesn't deserve ANY customers since they have staff refusing to pump propane just because it's wet out. I wonder if the dealership owner knows that happened?

I agree the owner or management should be made aware. This way they can try to explain their reasoning or discipline their employee, their choice

So I guess if it is cold and snowing and you run out of propane you would have a real problem.

I mailed a "friendly" letter to the dealership manager this afternoon. Mentioned I am a regular customer and that the explanation/excuse made no sense to me. I'll see if Iget any response.

Only until a nice sunny spring day!! That's on the basis of course if the snow is not melting too fast, well because potential floods and all!

call the place back and ask for manager since you get serviced at that spot. Let him know your not happy about bad service-ck on LP websight rain does not effect. Lazy worker. I bet boss man doesn't know the money he lost.

I wouldn't be surprised if they don't pump LP during lightning storms, and how does one predict whether a rain storm will have lightning or not? I'll bet the manager pleads necessary safety regulations.

Meddling by insurance companies often leads to this sort of unreasonable policy. The insurer sends around a guy to do safety inspections and recommend safe practices. If you don't comply, your rates may go up or lose coverage.

Howdy y'all,
Now don't get all knotted up, but the guy may have had a snotty nose and was upset because they wouldn't let him go to the ER!! Also, his ipod could get wet if he went out in the rain to service customers... I've had employees like that.. Couldn't haul feed because they slammed a gate on their hand and needed treatment.. I couldn't see any bones or blood and cut'em a check!!! Don't need'em!!!

I wouldn't want to go outside in 49 misting rain either.
For a $100 sale that may only be less then a $5 profit for the dealership.

Maybe the RV dealer doesn't provide the pump jockey with the clothing protection for that type of weather.
Did you see if they even had a raincoat/pants with hood and waterproof gloves for him?
You can get wet standing out in a misting rain, filling a LP tank.

I don't blame the pump jockey.

If it was just a light misting then maybe it was a sign it was getting ready to stop. Why didn't you just wait for it to stop misting?

I guess bottom line is do them a favor and don't bother to go there for propane. Not enough profit.Same for everything else.If they have to stock light bulbs they should make at least $5.00 profit when they sell them.
