I think that the OP has miss understood. I highly doubt that is such a thing as a do it your self. Not trying to be a jerk but if you are new at this you may not have understood what the tech had said. I have been involved in many miss communications especially over the phone. Just drive it in there they will fill it. Hell, ever Oregon does not trust you to pump your own gas......

In Arizona I had the propane pumped into my 30 lb tank and he would of pumped it in place but I had it out before he said it.

Hhmmm, Polar Is Guy.


Like most I never have heard of self serve propane. My wife's work is set up for selling propane but they haven't started selling it yet due to no one is trained yet.

Vince and Charlette: I did some research last night (certainly not exhaustive, but I thought pretty thorough) and I can't find any changes in regulations for LPG in Ohio or elsewhere that would cause the fellow's statement about not being able to fill your tank. I think there is a periodic inspection of tanks permanently mounted in the RV required by some locales (not sure) and I even once heard of a "lifespan" before you had to replace it with a new tank (something like 20 years) due to possible corrosion, but not on a new RV like yours. Have other dealers told you this or just the one?

The law here in Washington is 12 years for the date stamped on the handle of the tank for portable ones, then it needs to be re-certified. Unsure what the rules are for permanently mounted tanks on RV's is. Most fill locations dont even check the date unless the tank looks like junk.

Go git 'em Hicks!

It not only needs to be addressed but "they" should be FINED! A HEFTY ONE.
Sounds like a LAZY operation. Tractor Supply also has service for LP and they
do it! Prices are great too!

PS: To underscore the safety concerns...I was standing near the twin 30lb
tanks of my Airstream many a yr ago which had full tanks and were
baking in the sun. I suspect one of the tanks was overfilled perhaps
by an overzealous tech but when I reached up to switch the valve from
one tank to another the overfilled tank decided to "vent" right onto the
back of my hand. I was fairly startled by this(my neighbor two houses
down heard it!) and then the pain hit me! Put me out of commission
for a bit, trust me :[
