Back to the subject of propane on Sundays, I just remembered another source of propane. Pacific Pride Fuel stops are excellent for RV'ers. Many of their stations are unmanned and you just pull in, use your membership card, and pump your fuel. Most of their stations were designed to handle 18 wheelers, so our RV's will fit in nicely. Plus, they are located close to major highways. You get a monthly invoice and your bank account is drafted. Pacific Pride is related to Pioneer Fuel, and they "share" their web site. Prices are generally $0.01 to $0.05 per gallon lower than other stations in their area.

Now, many service stations have joined Pacific Pride Fuel (Chevron, Shell, etc.). Using Pacific Pride's web site, you can search for stations that have propane! Here is their web site: http://pacificpride.us/

Under their terms of service, I believe that Pacific Pride stations must be open every day, so Sundays should not be a problem.

Propane refills on Sunday

Great thread. I ran out on the last night of the last trip. Pushed it too far with too many cold nights in Florida. This info would have been very helpful.

Costco is where I primarily go but not all have propane refill. But for the ones that do it is great.

I just had propane filled in my MH and the dealer (Arts RV Service in Toms River NJ) told me that the state of NJ is cracking down on bulk propane stations. He said that they are requiring all of the Techs be certified, sky high insurance and lots of inspections. He said they are to start going after the stores that just swap bottles out in the next year or two.
I live about 20 miles south of TR and this was the only dealer I could find.

Sounds like the state is getting their "fingers" into more & more! NJ State Police also governs all racing in that state also. They conduct all safety inspections and must be present for all racing events. IF he gets called away for an emergency outside the track, ALL RACING MUST STOP until he returns!

I'm sure it's just another way to obtain "revenue."

Doug, did it ever occur to you that when one runs out to turn on the other and set the empty one out by the step so you would remember to get it filled THE SAME DAY? Just curious.

Never occurred to me to set it outside! That would likely help... I just plum forget about it after switching.

We are on the road traveling and have found more and more Costcos that are adding propane filling stations but you have to call ahead to see if they do. Not normally listed on website. Usually the cheapest or close.

I was just in my local Tractor Supply and they had this sign on the gate. Excellent price.
