RV Propane - More Than Just a Pretty Flame

During this session of the “From the Horse's Mouth Series,” Terry Cooper, the Texas RV Professor and President of the National RV Training Academy in Athens, Texas, shares what you need to know about propane - a fuel source often used in RVs for cooking and furnace heat.

When we look at the nice, blue flame with a slight yellow tip dancing on the burner of our RV cooktop, we never think about what it takes to make this clean, portable fuel safe and easy to use.

We cover some facts about propane like:

  • The two states of propane
  • How and when propane changes states
  • Why propane tanks aren't filled all the way
  • Why and when some propane tanks will need to be chained up/strapped down
  • Why RV manufacturers place the LP detector close to the floor
  • Seriously, why does it smell like that?!
  • What does the regulator do
  • How the temperature outside can affect your propane usability
