Same here as Mary & Bob. I completely removed my propane tank. Use one $9 hot plate and a toaster oven (to which I've used from day 1). I use the Hot Rod, have it wired into my breaker box with its own breaker. I have a slot cut in the front of my breaker box cover (for my finger) so a switch can not accidentally be turned on. IF you turn it on and there's no water in the tank....you might get 1 minute out of the unit without burning it up. Be fore-warned!
There's no going outside to light
my tank as before. It's very quiet and runs without even knowing it's there. Cheap upgrade that I would not be without now. I use nylon bushings and a special tool I made for the setup to remove all...like a "crow's foot". The bushings can easily be purchased at a "Tractor Supply" store (TSC).
