RE: Propane Tank Issues

After seeing the sample photo, as Doug said, it's the Safety Relief Valve. Below is a picture of what one typically looks like before it has tripped. https://i.imgur.com/eefBMcbl.jpg size=350 Thanks, this is very helpful. Mine does not have the red insert that is shown on yours. It is possible the tank was overfilled. But would it empty completely if that was the case? Or would it just empty just enough to bring it to "normal"? Doug might have the answer to that. I haven't experienced one tripping yet. It shouldn't be possible to overfill the tank if everything is working right, but I suppose it's possible the overfill prevention device valve has failed open. A properly trained refiller should be using the Fixed Liquid Level Gauge, sometimes referred as the "vent" or "spitter valve", to determine when the tank is filled to the proper 80% of the rated water capacity regardless of whether the OPD works or not.

RE: Question for class A and C people with toads!

I carry 40' of sewer hose and 50' of power cord and water hose. The utility locations on sites are rarely a problem.

RE: LED Side Marker Lights

Why would anyone install "cool white lights" when side marker lights are required to be amber by the NHTSA?

RE: Changing Screen Mesh - No-See-Ums?

Our screen house is rated as no-see-um proof and it really is. I don't know what size the mesh is except the openings are really tiny.

RE: Extended stay propane use

That seems like an odd setup. Why not connect the extended stay adapter to the onboard tank as it's intended to be and connect the external cylinder to the adapter with a suitable hose? That would make switching between the two sources much easier. In post #1, the OP stated that he has a stationary rig that won't be moving. He probably will only use the portable cylinders since he can't drive the rig to a propane supplier to refill the onboard tank. I understand that its working out for the OP and that all that really matters. Nevertheless the OP has merely hard piped his portable tank. Is he even making use of the Tee? One leg of the tee in not in use. His setup is an odd use of an extended stay Tee Exactly, and totally defeats the need for the extended stay adapter at all.

RE: Influenza 2022-2023 Experiences - Comments Etc.

The current quadrivalent flu vaccines cover four different strains, two A's and two B's. The senior vaccine is twice the dose of the standard dose.

We find it useful to have the onboard tank easily available for temporary use while getting the portable cylinder refilled. We've gone a full year doing that and only dropped the onboard tank about 20%.

RE: Propane Tank Issues

If it's at the bottom, it might be a liquid withdrawal port, sometimes used for LP generators.

RE: Connect Bluetooth Headphones to TV

I use a small unit connected to the Optical output and converts it to Blue Tooth to work with my Hearing Aides. Seems would be very similar to work with Blue Tooth Head Phones. Question for Michelle -- when connected to the optical audio out , does that kill your local TV speaker sound for others in the room? I have a similar setup to Michelle's, and no the optical connection does not kill the local speakers. I can control my hearing aid volume independently of the TV volume including muting the TV without affecting my hearing aids.

RE: Testing tanks, pump, LP, water heater, heater/blower, fridge

The far left device is the fuel gauge with a remote readout sending unit connection. The gauge should tell you how much is in the tank at the direct reading dial. If the inside gauge reading is different, then the sending unit may need replacing, but check for a second wire in the harness that should be connected to a ground point first. If the gauge does need replacing, they're readily available on Amazon, etc, and it isn't necessary to empty the tank. The gauge is either held in place by two small screws or simply snaps in place. It's magnetically coupled to a float assembly in the tank.

RE: Need Coax for Roof Antenna

You may find an inline connection buried in the sealer where the coax penetrates the roof. I've had good luck with indoor/outdoor RG-6 coax with weathertight fittings from Phat Satellite: PHAT SATELLITE 4ft Black TRI-Shield Indoor Outdoor RG-6 Coaxial Cable Weather Boot Connectors 75 Ohm

RE: Georgia State Parks Improvements

We get the newsletter and there's some interesting improvements at the GSPs. All-Terrain Track Chairs for those who have mobility issues are now available at a number of GSPs. The list of the parks is in the link above. The FHU installations continue in their campgrounds. Red Top Mountain now has a number of FHU campsites available now. Ours is booked for our winter roamings. Crooked River SP has FHU on about half the sites, and Ft McAllister SP has been adding FHU on some sites.

RE: Good potable water hose?

I use Flexilla hoses (Amazon has them) that remain very flexible even in sub-freezing temperatures. They're drinking water safe. In sub-freezing temps we just fill our water tank and use that after draining the hose.

RE: Propane Tank Level Indicators

For those having trouble replacing a Mopeka sensor after a cylinder refill, after I had my sensors in the "sweet spot", I outlined them with a permanent marker. Makes replacing them in the right spot really easy.

RE: Propane Tank Level Indicators

I'm using Mopeka sensors on my supplemental LP cylinders and the 330 gallon LP tank at our Adirondack family cottage. The sensors can be read using bluetooth and with an optional Internet bridge device on a phone app. AP Products 024-1002 Propane Tank Gas Level Indicator

RE: Proper Accumulator Tank Pressure

Mr. E, please let us know how this works out for you. I have the same pump and have been considering adding an accumulator to smooth out flow but not sure how it will work with these bypass pumps. (Manufacturer just says "not needed"). The accumulator will work ok with a bypass pump. The manufacturer is correct that it's not needed for the low flow pump cycling that occurs with non-bypass pumps, but it still works well for cutting down on how often the pump runs. I have a 2-gallon accumulator installed with a SHURflo Revolution bypass pump, and we can often make it through the night with typical old folks bathroom visits without the pump running at all.
