As soon as I purchased the camp in July I contacted AmeriGas (previous owners supplier). They came out in August and did their safety check. Prior to bear season I called them and told them I need my 2 100lb tanks filled. Time goes by and many calls to them and they never come out to fill the tanks. I was told they would fill the tanks last week, but they didnt. They called me today to tell me they won't be coming out because of the snow... No kidding... I said that's why I called you a month ago. They won't go up untill the snow is gone and the roads to camp doesn't get plowed. Other then switching suppliers... how can I get run camp? Everything runs off those tanks... oven, gas lights, and upstairs heater. Is there anyway I could take up a little 20lb tank and put at least 20lbs in the tank. Any ideas and help is appreciated.
Thanks...

This is why we have our own tanks. We have two 100# tanks hooked up and one as a spare. That way whenever one tank gets empty we can switch it out and get the empty filled. It's much better then having to rely on somebody else to do it.

You should be able to fill a couple 20# tanks, and use them to get you by....... you should be able to hook right into the 20# tanks, no need to transfer to the 100#

Take the tanks to Dremel oil in North Bend, they will fill them. A bag dolly helps if you are moving them by yourself.

You can hook up the small ones. Depending on if the big ones are hooked up in tandem, your small one may flow into a larger one first, but it still works. It pays to invest in a 30 or 40 pounder, keep it filled inside the camp, then you are never without, and the 30 and 40lb are still small enough to hoss around.

I would think so, a 100 lb tank is a 100 pound tank, as long as you own the tank, I don't think it matters who name is on them.

We use Kessinger Propane for our camp in the Sproul. Everyone might want to try and call:

Kessinger Propane: Bill is the owner operator.

Good Luck... Tooth

Look into suburban and look into getting a bigger tank.
We use to run off 2 100 lb tanks then switched to a 500 gallon tank.
Costly to fill but we reorder at 40 percent capacity which leaves us with plenty of fuel if such a delay with delivery comes up.
One other thing there is usually a tank rental charge for one that size.

i'd bite the bullet and buy my own 100# tanks and tell amerigas to come and get theirs. i had the same problem years ago with a 500# tank that i couldn't get bedford valley petroleum to come and fill. i ran on 20#'s for a year and then converted to electric and wood and told them to come get the 500# tank. took them months and they tore my yard up good getting it out.

FWIW, the only appliance I run on LP is my stove, but I only use about 6 gallons of propane a year, so a 20# tank might actually go pretty far for you, seeing as you arent running stuff constantly.....
