If you contact a propane full service shop they can assist you in what
you will need.
Correct me if I'm wrong but, I was under the impression a propane tank fed from the bottom of the tank, therefore turning it upside down would not be beneficial. And gravity is not a factor due to the fact that it is a pressure based concept(propane is a gas at stp)
My coach is an 06 and has a manual shut off switch next to the remote fill.
I am very frustrated because my 33g tank(27g @ 80%) only lasts me a week or so. The cg I'm staying at offers a 500# pig they will install at $4 a gallon(rip off), so for about 500 bucks I don't have to clean my counter tops off, pack up and unhook every week. They also told me they don't want random propane tanks sitting out, ie they want the profit from their price gouging.
I have filled a 1# tank from a grill tank(theoretically not full), therefore a full 7 gal tank has a higher pressure than a nearly empty 30 gal tank, so the liquid will flow into the less pressurized tank until the two tanks are equal pressure. Fill the 7gal and repeat, granted I will never actually fill the larger tank, but it should keep me from the hassle of moving the mh not to mention the outrageous prices they want to charge.
I can go to a uhaul and get propane for aroun 2.50/g, how can they charge $4? Does propane fall under a deferent fuel category that is not regulated, even gas stations have a small window they can deviate from the market price based on fed regulations.
