Propane Question

I will be living in my RV full-time and hoping to stay some places for more than a week or so. I have a question about getting the propane tanks refilled, especially at some of the RV parks. Do I have to move the RV every time the propane gets low, or do some of the parks come around and fill them on-site?

Some of the commercial Propane dealers have trucks with propane delivery to RV's in our area, so maybe give one in your area a call. Good Luck.

Thanks, I was hoping that might be the case. I guess it would be a case of checking with the RV park to see who they recommend for that service.

another option many full timers in cold climates use is the 'extend a stay' propane inline connector device, allowing you to use standard 20lb propane cylinders rather than having to fill your onboard propane tank...

Not all RV parks have on-site propane .........service or capability

Propane companies may or may not do on-site delivery.

So you will need to plan ahead and check.
Otherwise you will have to drive RV to propane vendor for refill

Lots of gas stations around here have auto propane, so that's also something to think about. Fill up when you gas up if propane is getting low.

I don't know of an RV park that will come to you with propane. Getting a local is about the only option, and many of them don't have the couplings to fill RVs.

I'm sure the park can suggest somebody.

Delivery can double the cost of your propane fill up , so Extend - A -Stay, or a similar product can pay for its self in a short time.

Our '00 DSDP had a propane generator and a 40 gallon (32 usable) tank. We were going to an FMCA rally and knew we would need the generator for cooling since we had two dogs. Got the Extend A Stay and a 10 gallon tank. Glad I did because in 5 days we used most of the onboard tank and two refills on the 10 gallon one. No longer have the MH, in fact we traded it off on a rig with a diesel gen in '02.
