We RV more than 120 days each year. Only buy propane twice a year. Sure don't need a tracking device for that.

I think the Rand McNally 7730 allows you to add "maintenance reminders" so you could figure how much propane you use and add a reminder when to fill up, or if you're asking about hazardous gas through certain tunnels I believe this does it too.

All of the Rand McNally GPS allow you to add propane and how many bottles you are carrying. This is under the RV Tools on the Home Screen. First you need to select preferences to pick either car/light truck or RV. When you pick the RV icon you than go back and you can select the RV tools and enter all of your parameters for the RV including the number of Propane bottles and size. This information is than used to route you accordingly when you are in the RV mode. Such as low under passes and tunnels that will not allow propane or exceed bridge weight limits. There are also Check, Maintenance, Trails and Fuel list on the GPS that can be used.

No need to guess when you can easily add a remote propane sensor. I got the Tech Edge iSeries system and it includes a propane level sensor.

I haven't installed it yet but it looks like it will monitor EVERYTHING very accurately.

A heads-up about the Rand McNally GPS and I’d bet this probably applies to all brands of GPS. If you use the POI (point of interest) in your GPS to locate a campground, be sure to verify it has the correct location of the campground. With each upgrade Rand McNally has gotten better but it still has some campgrounds incorrectly located in the POI directory. I know you don't want to be driving in your RV on some small city street and have the GPS tell you, "you have reached your destination," and there isn't a campground to be seen.

I use the Good Sam campground directory since it has the GPS coordinates listed for RV parks and campgrounds so that’s what I program into the Rand McNally.
