If you own or travel in an RV, you are probably aware of the list of countless parts and supplies needed for an RV to be fully functional, and most importantly ready to take out on the road. You may also agree that one of the most important parts of an RV is the propane that we use to fill our RV propane tanks – especially for cooking meals in our RV kitchen. Propane, also known as liquefied petroleum gas, is a gas normally compressed and stored as a liquid and used as a sort of bottled fuel. Learn more about the background and history of the propane that we use to fill our RV propane tanks in this video. Listen to the story of how propane was first invented by Dr. Walter Snelling in 1910, as well as some of the earliest propane-powered inventions, including propane-powered stoves and vehicles. The list goes on and on. Watch this RV informational video and better understand the gas that fills your RV propane tank as well as the history behind this important part of RVing.
