Who ever delivers propane to home users can fill the tanks at their store. Usually cheaper than exchange. I know Loves truck stops can fill tanks also, believe some of the other major truck stops do too.

To rent a bottle is $70 deposit and $20 foe the bottle. We will just purchase two bottles and go from there. The conversion was easy. The regulator was the most expansive part of the mod. I wanted auto change over. I was surprised how stiff the hoses were so I replaced all the hoses. I had no idea how to purchase everything I needed. Everyone has been a big fast help. Thank you.

You may not want them to fill it!

I was in a KOA a week ago and they had a sign up at the propane station that there was a 7 gal minimum purchase. I took that to mean if you only get 5 gal they charge for 7 gal.

Just saying
Then what do you call Blue Rhino? That's renting. When empty, exchange for a full one. The tank technically belongs to Blue Rhino but it's definitely not the cheapest route in most places. 20# bottles are cheap enough to own.

With the original price without a return being $60 some bucks plus tax, you have already paid for the tank. Renting? Ever have to sign a contract? I've had Blue Rhino tanks filled at more places than I can count.

We get our 20# single tank filled in the spring from our great LP source. It usually lasts the year, if not, we get it filled when it runs out. The refrig will stay cold enough until you come across a re-fill place - there's a lot of them.
I had though two tanks would be nice, but we just don't use that much propane and rarely for big draw items like the furnace. We don't use the water heater much either.
I'm content with one tank and the less tongue weight and one less thing to think about.

Sounds to me like you have it figured out. No sense in carrying extra weight you won't need.

We are camping next week at Hoeft State Park downstate near Rogers City, I think it's only a couple of hundred miles. We are around 3/12 hrs from the bridge. Short trips are good. We love camping downstate as much as the downstate folks love camping up here in the U.P.
Maybe we will meet sometime.

I just purchased two 20 lb tanks for $48.00 full of Propane. I will not rent Propane tank because they ate 2/3 full. When KOA filled my tanks they are full.

See Tractor Supply for new bottles. Some bottles canít be refilled if over 10 years from certification. (Date is stamped on handle)

I did but the cost of the two bottles were more because we had to get them filled. I like Tractor Supply it has everything.
