Currently in Jasper with a new to us 2008 Keystone 5th wheel. Still have another 10 days here and just tried to refill one of my 30lb propane tanks, but was told it can’t be done unless recertified, or replaced. My bad for not remembering that tidbit of info. So,, is there anywhere close to either Jasper or Banff where I could get replacement tanks??
I’m searching the internet to no avail.

Thanks for any assistance!!

Find a propane business and have them recertify and fill your tank. No need to buy tanks.

Larger cities have places to get your bottles recertified.
If you are coming through Edmonton or Calgary it will be no problem.

Canwest Propane in Hinton is probably your best bet. If you are going on to Banff try Superior Propaane in Canmore.

Go to the nearest Costco and buy a new tank, less than $60 filled, certify will likely cost as much if not more.

Have you tried the Esso or Petro-Canada gas stations in Jasper? They might sell propane tanks. Canmore (short drive east of Banff ) has a Canadian Tire store that sells propane tanks. You could also try Canmore Outdoor Power Equipment Ltd. They are a propane supplier,but not sure if they re-certify tanks. The Tourism Jasper office might be able to help. Some companies that re-certify tanks might be closed until Tuesday because of the Labour Day holiday.

The Petro-Canada at Lake Louise sells propane. You might be able to buy a new filled tank there.

Thank you all for the quick responses and suggestions. It was the petro Canada in Jasper where I tried to fill. He was nice enough to put 11L in but would not fill it. Think Canmore will be our best bet. If we didn’t need to run our heater so much, I wouldn’t be worried!
