Does anyone know the approximate cost to fill the two propane tanks on the camper?

It really depends where you go. Figure $60 to $80 around here for both. If you do it up in Lakewood it might be more I haven't checked yet.

Last year our campground charged $35 for a 30#. Local gas station charged $31 for a 30#. After talking to other seasonals we contacted a local LP dealer. They rented us a 100# tank for $1 a year and $60 for the fill. I told them where I wanted the tank, about 10' away from the camper, and they buried the line at no additional charge. It's hooked up to the auto change over in place of one of our 30# tanks. When it's empty, hasn't happened yet, the auto change over switches to our other 30# on board tank. We call them and they come to replace the 100# tank. Big savings and less hassle. Something you might want to consider.

Propane filling costs in Canada for 30 lbs at Costco $21.00 each. I don't go elsewhere as they are always the best deal, have a spare cylinder I rotate through.

Our Seasonal park opens May 15th, this year 2 days before May long weekend. The water system will be absolutely strained with all the clean up. They have 250 sites on 1 deep well. I run 2 filters to remove Iron.

And we are parked...we still have a lot of work to do and the site is not level at all so it took a lot to level the camper....then it started to settle so it needs to be leveled again.
