Hey Tom and Gina you two are right on. Another Puck owner located in Tenessee named his Puck wolf. Could I have the long lost twin? The younger one if named wolfy and the more distinguished older one if named Wolfgang Not by the looks of it, well at least not identical twins. His is a natural aluminum siding, he took all the paint off, and the roof is red.

Thanks Paddy for the information - 2 - 20lbs you can probably go for a long time without refills.

Hey Gina, found a product that may help you if ever in the future you need to reweld a portion of your trailer frame. http://www.alumaloy.net/ I don't know how strong it is or anything and further research is needed but I know welding aluminum is tough and expensive. Hopefully you won't ever need any more welding but I though this was interesting information.

I bring along 2 20lb tanks as well. One would do most of the time but back up is nice while traveling cross country and in the winter time. Also if you run out and cant get it filled, you can exchage it for a full one if you have to.

The no point in creating more trash with the little throw away tanks and you cant exchange the other tanks on the market. With 2 20s you can run one down and use the other until you find a refill center. Today I filled one 20 for 9.95 total at a little Trailer Dealership in Fairlawn, Va. I wish my S10 ran on LP. The price didnt go up on LP.

Andy,

Appreciate the additional info. The only concern I have about the 20lbs is the added weight. I agree the disposables are not an environmentally friendly option. The 20lb exchange route is a big plus, but my proble is (ok one of my problems is) I don't have a big tow bar on this trailer so space is limited for the propane tanks - in fact I am still trying to figure out how I will make a mount to carry the tank at all since the original hanging bracket is long gone.

Keith

Have you thought about a horizontal tank?

Not sure of which applications they can be used in, but it's something to look into.

If ya can't use one.. nothing lost.
