Propane Delivery or Lack of It!

I have about had it with this area in Western NYS. High taxes, little or no services, have to leave area to get something you need, but this morning really upset me. We were going to leave the area December 1 for the south for the winter but my wife's knee replacement rehab has gone slower than we expected and then I hurt my back where I can hardly move. The motorhome has been sitting in our driveway and is covered with ice and snow and can not be driven as we have been having one snow storm after another. The propane tank is empty so we called 6 propane companies in our area and begged them to deliver propane to us, we even said we would pay extra and not 1 of them would deliver propane to us!!! We are not located out of the way either. I am really discussed with businesses in this area. Last year we were about 40 miles north of Pittsburgh and did not have any issues at all with propane delivery. Thanks for listening.

This subject has been discussed before,and it seems that the main problem is that they don't want to be bothered with such a small amount propane. I would assume that if you needed some for your house and your RV they would do it.
We have trouble getting people to do anything for us in this area.

Put a stay a while on yours. You can use 20 lb tanks that are easy to exchange yourself. Easy to install also.

X2, easy peasy to install and makes it very convenient when parked for an extended period.

Use electric heat for now, Or add an extend-a-stay type device and use an external tank.. Once you have motion find a propane station.. Many RV dealers. U-haul. Some hardware stores, some gasoline stations, Flying J, Pilot, T/A, Loves, and so on all sell propane.

The extend a stay is what I use, combined with the electric heaters. No propane delivery where I am either. But because of the extend a stay and electric heaters, it is their loss not mine.

I do have extended stay tanks that I use but our male cocker spaniel mistakes the tanks as a fire hydrant Today was a nice day so I got to take the motorhome down to the local Tractor Supply and filled all the propane tanks. Not going to touch the permanent onboard tank.
Thanks everyone for the comments it's what makes this forum great!
