Propane refill at campgrounds

Feel strange asking this but when at a campground and MH is all setup, do they have propane truck go around the sites for those that need refilling? This would be on MH that have permanent tanks installed. My Brother-in-law asked me this question and I didn't know. Can't believe you would have to break camp to get refilled. Thanks in advance.

I would contact the local propane distributor listed in the book.
They may deliver but I am real sure you will pay for it.
Any though been given to renting a large tank and using that?

I have been at a CG where a private propane company would come to the park once a week to fill propane tanks. This was at a long stay CG in the winter. Most MH carry a 20 to 30 pound tank and use an extend a stay adapter to avoid using the on board propane tanks.

Not a normal service to have a propane truck at a CG. Some do. Ocean Lakes CG in Myrtle Beach, SC has a service come in a fill your tanks on site. You need to get off your wallet as it is not cheap. I paid a flat $70 last Jan. But that is better than breaking "camp" and driving someplace.

Contact the campground staff, they would know if anyone come to the park. Some rv parks have a day scheduled with the local company.

I've only known of those where you have to break camp and go get them filled.

At the Navy dry camp facility in Key West the local propane truck did make deliveries but charged 50 bucks plus the propane.

Most MH's broke camp when they needed a fill.

We were at a FROG rally at a campground at Kerrville, TX in October. The campground had a day scheduled when the local propane dealer came in and filled up everybody who made arrangements in advance through the campground. Price was about the same as if you went to them for propane. Best deal going.

We have gotten propane at two RV parks, once in FL and in MN and was scheduled by the RV park.

Wow - $50 for a delivery charge plus the probably over priced propane is high.

No wonder most MH broke camp for refills - might make it worthwhile to get friendly with a guy going off site for propane and hitch a ride.
