My wife and I bought our first motorhome last fall and I'm curious where most people with built in LP tanks get them filled. We live in a rural area and none of the propane dealers around here are willing to fill a built in tank.

why??

Propane is one of those commodities that's found where you find it, and other than actual propane dealers, even google doesn't know who sells it.

Some gas stations, Flying J, rural hardware stores... it's often challenging to find. I'm in a little better position with removable tanks, but that's not your case.

My local welding shop has the easiest access so normally use them. I have also used gas stations that are accessible, campgrounds, truck stops, camping world or other RV dealer. Our local propane distributor will come out to the MH and fill it as well but there scheduling is not very accommodating to my schedule.

I have removables but still have always used campgrounds. Propane isn't all that expensive and convenience is worth it anyway imo.
But I recognize that folks' priorities can be different.

Many urban and suburban hardware stores now do, "exchange only" ... so, you need to get out of town, more rural areas. THen many gas stations and hardware stores, and the Flyin J and Pilot truck stops will fill tanks. Also, the major U-haul rental shops.

If you go on Allstays.com - it links to Propane stores - you can plug in local areas and it will display.

Locally I use a large propane dealer. But most fills are on the road where RVs go.

Many, not all, campgrounds offer propane for sale. Asking in the campground has been our best local resource to find something easy.
