Now that I can understand,Charles. but I was thinking 500 gal, outside the house. changes the whole picture doesn't it. I guess I've never run out of camping propane where it mattered. Don't camp much in the winter, burr, :snowman but I have run out of house propane. That I do not like. :nope

BBQ's

Hi Charles
We're still working with a 20 year old BBQ. It was my dad's and he used it about 10 times...not big on barbequeing...so when our last BBQ bit the dust he gave his to us. Soooo our second chance still works.

Not everyone has a guage on their propane tanks. We now have three and not one with a guage and what the heck does having a empty propane tank on your BBQ have to do with a snow storm.

Wait, I got to get up off the floor. :colors Not laughing at you, but me. I'm just not as trailer oriented as most of you. I was thinking of when we ran out in the house/home/cedar/brick and stone house.
That big sucker I've got in the yard has a guage. the little big one on the trailer doesn't. I just got this all messed up. :red

In my case, I DO dash outside :cblob and put the little canister online in place of my (relatively) big bottle (only a ten lb'r), but I don't have a refrigerator, just a ventfree furnace and the range top. Dashing outside in cold, rain or whatever tends to make an impression on me so I won't forget to refill the big bottle:zz

My outside stoves are a Coleman one-burner and a couple of backpacking stoves, all using Coleman fuel.

Charles, for a cannister holder, consider a short length of PVC or drain pipe long enuf for a couple of cannisters to stand up inside (leave bottom open so leakage can fall right out, but not the cannisters, of course). This would put the cannisters outside, where they are safest, but out of direct sunlight. I'm thinking of doing this myself to get the cannisters out of the back of the truck.

Second Chance

:ola All of your resoponses gave me an idea. One day, I'll get rid of the big propane bottle and that will give me room to make a box of expanded metal for a generator and then attach one of Petes Pvc holders to the box and have disposable propane bottles mounted on the tougue.

Don't laugh at my picture.:cblob <img src=http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/uploads/3ddca26487b0ccasgenpro.GIF/>

picture

Well, I'd laugh if there was anything to laugh at, but that picture is great. I'm always doing stuff like that. helps me think. just one problem, MaryM. where are the lables. I'm not sure I know which is which. Let's see if I can guess. 1st on left = generator
middle = battery right = propane tubes??? am I right?
The other thing. would the propane be hooked up all the time while in those tubes or do you have to take them out to hook them up?

I cannot believe a topic on a simple brass fitting has drawn 20 posts. :r

I am a little frightened by how excited I was to see the new Second Chance. I really gotta get a life.

Yes, but, didn't you say something similar about [b]Okra!, which prompted the discussion (if you can call it that) to go on for a couple more screens? (Remember, 15 messages per screen...!) :jester

23 (or so)

Thanks for a great gift idea for my hubby! I am looking for Casita gifts, so a fe more ideas would be welcome! I also wrote down the four sided screwdriver, and plan to order a shower drain j plug.

Still no time to jazz this up with smilies... sorry.
