All tanks have the ''auto shut off'', dealers won't fill any that do not have that feature.

We recently purchased a new Rockwood that came with 30# tanks. My DH decided to have the dealer swap them out for 20#ers & he's glad he did. We don't often dry camp, so they should last us the season of probably 6 weeks of camping.

one should fill by the 10% valve on the main valve. soon as it spits white liquid or the valve autostops your done.

Do most of you get them filled on site from a mobile or what?

Thanks

Alot of campgrounds will fill, some will have a mobile service come to campground, I think camper world will fill. I have a flying j app it will tell you what stations have LP and dump stations. When you get the loyalty Card you get discount on gas.

From my experiences Mobile LP deliveries require a 100 LB minimum, otherwise it is pull bottle or take trailer to supplier.

I don't believe 30 lb tanks can be filled in the compartment and as a matter of fact I would bet on it. They have to be weighed. I'm pushing 70 years old, have 2 herniated discs in my lower back and I can still get them out after undoing the wing nut, etc. As my physio says to me, "get some young person to help you". I am stubborn that way and the take medication to alleviate the pain...a few dark, 150 proof, rums. Also good for scurvy, beaver fever and an assortment of other things. Good luck with whatever you do.

"Beaver fever" - is that just a Canadian ailment?

Nope, it's a real quick weight loss diet. I dropped 20 lbs in 12 days. It's a parasite in water called Giardisis or spelling to that effect. My wife gave me 3 rum and cokes a day to combat it, as we were in the Rocky Mountains dry camping for 3 weeks. I did get over it naturally but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. My whole body was shaking. As I said I'm kind of stubborn. I was able to get into clothes I hadn't been able to fit into in many years tho',
