Propane Gas For Motorhomes: Why It’s The Best Option
Propane is versatile, clean, and safe
With summer vacation looming, it’s time to start thinking about where to go this summer. If you have an RV, you’re in a great situation! You can enjoy a trip while being able to adhere social distancing when needed.
As your planning your trip, don’t forget to add propane to your packing list!
RVs and Propane: A perfect combination
There’s so much propane can do in your RV to make your trips more comfortable. Propane can run your stove and refrigerator, heat your water, and keep the RV warm if the nights get chilly. And that’s just the beginning! Here are other ways propane makes RV life better:
- Propane can be used for cooking in other ways besides your RV’s stove. Grilling up breakfast, lunch, or dinner is easy on a propane grill. And a propane-powered outdoor fryer can do so much more than deep-fry your catch of the day. It can cook a big batch of corn on the cob, or a classic seafood boil.
- Propane containers are easy to store and don’t take up a lot of space, which means more room for beach supplies.
- Propane cylinder and tank exchange and refill stations are plentiful, so you’ll never be far from more propane.
- Will you be camping? Propane-powered heaters can make sure everyone stays warm and comfortable. Propane-powered mosquito traps make nights outside more enjoyable and itch-free.
- Because propane appliances are so efficient, you pay less to power them. That means more money for amusement parks and ice cream!
- Propane generates far fewer emissions than gasoline. You’ll reduce your impact on the beautiful places you’re visiting.
Put safety first
Propane is a safe fuel source. Propane cylinders are made to the strictest safety standards and are much more puncture resistant than portable tanks for other fuels. But you still must know the ins and outs of propane safety. We’ve put together a few tips.
- Have your propane equipment professionally maintained on a regular basis.
- When using a propane stove or appliance inside your RV, have at least one door or window open.
- Never use your propane stove for space heating.
- Always transport your propane containers upright with the valves closed.
- Never transport propane containers in the passenger or living areas of your RV.
- Carefully check for leaks when connecting a replacement propane tank or cylinder.
