Propane fill up

Being new to a class C, with fixed tank, where do most of you have them filled. Besides going to CampingWorld or GeneralRV

When you are on the road, many of the big truck centers like Flying J and Loves have accessible propane tank fill up. Many KOA's also. I have a rental center in my town with Propane.

I try to start out every trip with a full tank, but sometimes I get it on the road when I stop for gas.

Some Ace Hardware stores fill propane, both portable tanks and built-in.

We look for gas stations that fill, U Haul, Flying J, and tool rental places.

Since we pull a toad, we need to find drive thru places.

Many regular gas stations have automotive propane in Canada. Probably 30-40% have it. Almost all rural stations have it.
If you aren't using your furnace much, you should get many days of camping per fill. We usually get an easy 30 days or more with mostly boondocking. The fridge uses the most, but if the propane campfire comes out, 15 pounds can go in an evening!

I was surprised to find a few local gas stations have propane. Never noticed before owning an RV. I guess most people go there to fill their 5 gallon tanks for their grills, etc.

When around home I get mine filled at the local propane supplier, they also refill BBQ tanks, and do home propane delivery for people fixed tanks. It is purely a convenience issue as around here Tractor supply is cheaper, but the propane dealer is a few miles closer to where I store my motorhome and easier to get in and out of.

If you're going through a small town check at the local feed store. From now on that's what we'll do.. I was amazed by the price.
