Question LP Tests

Hi,

So, I'm having little trouble with my old beast (78 Dodge Sportsman Winnie Minnie). I hate when it comes to Propane, not sure what its about, just not comfortable with that.

Anyone know any good places that I can go to to test the LP or Propane tank? Anyone know how long these last. I'm not getting anything in my Stove or Heater.

Thank you.

Well it can take a very long time, or a very short time. You could have bad regulators at those appliances, or a clogged line.
You should get an LP leak test, but only after all the appliances have been checked to make sure they work properly.
Leak test takes 15mins. Checking all appliances doesn't take too long. Maybe an hour or two. Fixing is the issue. There's no way to tell. Basically, if you want to use it, spend the money and time and get it fixed right.

How do I test an appliance without having the main tank hooked up to avoid any fires?

Just get a small cylinder with a regulator on it and hook directly to the appliance. Or just plug off all other appliances.
Or do a leak test first, fix the leaks, then test appliances.

Honestly, propane is not that easy to ignite. It has a very small LP/mix ratio that will ignite.
