How is propane used in RVing?

Propane is an invaluable energy source for RV users.

It heats water so you can shower and wash dishes. It provides power to your refrigerator, so your food stays safely cold. The propane is also used for gas cooking.

Propane keeps your RV comfortable by powering the heating and cooling systems.

You can also use propane outside the RV, with camp stoves, tent heaters, and insect traps.

Propane tanks for RVs are designed to be carried by one person. The most common sizes are:

20-pound tank. This is the size propane tank you would use for a propane BBQ grill. It holds 4.5 gallons of propane and weighs 37 pounds when full.

30-pound tank. It holds 7 gallons of propane and weighs 55 pounds when full. This tank is more commonly used for RVs and campers.

Propane safety tips for RVing

Because of its strict industry standards and safety regulations, propane is a secure fuel source to use. It’s essential that you understand the proper usage of propane when traveling in an RV so that your trip can be safe as well as fun.

To ensure your RV’s propane equipment is functioning properly and safely, we strongly suggest you have annual, professional maintenance done on it.

Propane has a odorant added to it, which smells like rotten eggs, that lets you know if there is a propane leak in or near your RV. If you detect this odor, leave the area and call 911 immediately.

If you or someone in your party displays signs of carbon monoxide poisoning, exit the RV and seek out medical attention immediately.

For maximum safety while cooking or using other propane appliances in the RV, keep a door or vent open.

NEVER use your RV’s propane stove for space heating.

Store propane cylinders in an upright position with the valves shut to avoid any potential leakage.

NEVER store or transport propane cylinders in the passenger or living areas of the RV.

It is essential to inspect propane cylinders for damage, corrosion, leaks or rust with each refill or exchange.
