I need to know how much this will cost, what size tank I should get, keeping in mind that I will need to remove and take somewhere for refill. What parts are needed? I've called two propane home suppliers and they will not come out to fill tank. If they would, I would use one of theirs and get a bigger unit. Seems they will do it for trailers but not Class A. Thank you for any help you can provide. Oh, I do intend to have an RV person do the installation, but want full info before he comes so that I am not being 'ripped off' which seems to happen more than I would like.
THis is what we did one year in Texas. we bought the below setup and then went to Walmart and bought 2ea 5 gal propane tanks on a exchange basis. when one tank went empty I would hook up the full one and take the empty to walmart and exchange for another full tank. The reason being propane was high in Texas and it was cheaper to do the propane tank exchange at walmart.
Some propane companies will set you up with a 100 lb tank which will last longer and fill it maybe once a week or as needed. The parts you need are listed below with the price at todays rate.
