Propane bottles

Is it ok to disconnect one of the bottles for a few days to have it filled while still using the other bottle. I'm scared that regulator will leak with no bottle on it for a period of time.

make sure that your auto changeover regulator switch is towards the tank left on your TT ... it won't leak at all unless it's not an auto changeover ... I'd say most are the auto variety ... you can leave it off for as long as needed

It wont leak if it is manual either unless there is something wrong with it.

Agree with the above. You can easily leave one bottle off as long as the value/regulator is working correctly.

If you're not sure about it leaking test it with soapy water or leak test fluid. You could use the old standby, a lighted match, but that could be dangerous.

Not clear why it would take several days to get it filled. When I had a TT with double bottles I didn't remove the empty tank until I was ready to take it for a fill...that generally took less than an hour.

Hold my beer while I check for leaks.

Is anyone using Fiberglas propane tanks. Being a senior I needed something lighter weight. 22lb tank weighs 11 lbs empty. They were designed for marine use. Love it on my TT
