Many places we stayed did not have propane delivery. We solved the problem by getting a Stay a While tee and a 30 pound tank. It is easy to install and allows the use of an external tank which you can take to a place that fills propane tanks. The Stay a While also has a port and hose that lets you connect your grill so you on't have to mess with little bottles.
Another brand is Extend a Stay and Camco also makes one. The two brands mentioned first have some safety features like check valves that I think are important. The other brands out there (Camco and others) may also have them.

Here in New York I don't know the law even if there is one. I asked the delivery guy when he was filling by 500gl house tank if he could top off my MH. He did it no questions
asked, and has been doing it for the last 3 years. If there is a law about it here he might just be ignoring it.

Cactus propane used to deliver in our park. Purchased by Amerigas and the same trucks will not fill tanks that were consistently filled previously.

I had the same experience here with Amerigas. It's been at least two years ago. Wasn't happy about it, but I got over it.

Who is your supplier?
I live in OKC. Earnhart fills my house tank. Then I fill my own motorhome tank, via 100lber.

There are local ordinancs in many areas as well as company policies. We are volunteering in VA and the refuge wanted to have a tank installed for our winter heating needs. Neither local company will even install the tank because it was attached to an RV. No reason, just no!!So we are using several portable tanks and an extend-a-stasy hookup.

I agree Biscuit, i am going to ask my delivery guy when he shows up. The fill valve on my 40 gal RV tank is exactly the same as my 500 gal home tank.

ferrellgas propane, so you have a small 100 lb tank you get filled then use your own hose to fill your RV from it?

Quartzsite, Az.
We were just told yesterday that the guy that brought propane to our resort/park Quite his Job so there is no one to drive the truck. I see a place down the Hwy that will deliver @ $1.99 a gallon or pound. We still have 1/2 tank so we have some time to see if he gets replaced or I will take the toad down the Hwy to see about the delivery down there. Either way $1.99 is better than the $3.09 we paid at the last fill up.

Actually, I fill my 100lb off of my 500 gallon house tank, via the "wet valve". Then fill the motorhome from the 100lber. I have to turn the 100 upside down in order to get the liquid out of it.

I too, use the extend-a-stay with a separate 30 pound tank. We often use our motorhome for guests when they come to the house so I just refill the 30 pounder and always have gas in the main tank if we take an unexpected trip. Last year while living in our rv for 8 months in central georgia, the 0ropane truck would come every two weeks and drive through the campground filling anybody that needed it.

Here in Ontario Canada there is a law against "mobile to mobile transfer". This I believe is due to grounding issues.

There was a large explosion and fire in a large metrolpolitian area (Toronto) a few years back when there was a truck to truck transfer taking place at a propane distribution centre. Injuries and major property damage. Then all of a sudden a law against this.

Error,
They don't deliver down the HWY. Then why dose his sign @ the front of his Bldg. says he does?
Found out at the Office there will be a sign up sheet for Propane. $2.89

prpane delivery

Went ahead and got hookups and a couple of 30lb tanks, our propane co. says it doesn't pay for them to deliver to motorhomes. We will fill our on board tank when we take the rig out for exercise. It's a pain but no other propane co. in the area will deliver either.
