RE: Getting propane tanks in and out

I'm sure I'll get all this figured out. I just remember when I went for my PDI the salesman had all kinds of trouble getting the 30# tank out and it was empty. Ever since then my coach has been at the manufacturer fixing a couple problems. I should have it back soon and I'm trying to be pro active and the tanks stuck in my mind. I'm sure I'll make it work.

RE: Getting propane tanks in and out

I don’t know about anyone else but I’m learning a bunch from this thread. I didn’t know you paid more by swapping tanks. I guess it makes sense but I didn’t know it. Do the tank swapping companies keep the 10 under the 10 year certification limit?

RE: Getting propane tanks in and out

The tanks you’d trade at Walmart are they 15’s or 20’s? Interestingly I don’t recall anyone saying they carry extra propane in the truck bed?

RE: Getting propane tanks in and out

Hey Cummins12V98, That’s great information and the pictures really helped pull it all together. Thanks for that. I’d like to be able to put a pull out tray on mine but not sure I have the vertical clearance for it? Someone said go from 30 Gal to 20 to gain space. But I really don’t want to lose 20 gals of propane. I’m frankly surprised someone hasn’t devised an elevator system, maybe like a tire Jack.

RE: Getting propane tanks in and out

Having the tanks on a tray has to be helpful and is something I’ll look into. I’ll add them if possible. And Michelle, what you neglected to tell us is your an Olympic weight lifter. I can brag on myself a little because I bought 10 pound dumbbells and use them almost everyday. Ok, I cut them in half, ok thirds, but I use em!

RE: Getting gas with long trailer?

Hi mlight and I hear that. I’ll do that as well… Almost out of gas with no place in sight with a large 5’er is no fun!

RE: Getting gas with long trailer?

Hi ol Bombero-JC, I’m sure there’s something in there somewhere I can use. :) One of them is get gas (not diesel) well before you need it! See how I paraphrased there? Yah I got the 7.3 Godzilla engine. That is one fantastic engine but it does requiring refueling and that’s for sure!

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

I guess I understand the emergency aspect if someone with you is ailing and may require attention. Other then that I can’t see the advantage? To me it’s like the RVer I met who never put out his awning because the wind could blow.

RE: Getting propane tanks in and out

The only time I’d really go through propane is an overnight at someplace like Walmart. If it’s hot we’d have to run the generator. And what good is having a built in generator if you don’t use it when needed right?

Getting propane tanks in and out

Hi guys, Like many of you I have a 30 lb. propane tank on each side of my coach. The older we get the harder it is to get them in and out especially when full. Has anyone seen anything or know of anything to make this job easier? Some 5’ers have slide out trays which have to help. But if not, how can the job be made easier?

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

Again winner-winner-chicken-dinner! I did have the Ford puck hitch system installed.

I have a new Ford F-350.

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

Everyone says the unplug for the night. Is that because it drains the battery if you don’t?

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

Thanks Barney, I agree with you. And to unhook when gas is needed, although not preferred, is certainly doable. At times we don’t know what we have until we get there. I’d rather unhook and get gas instead of going on down the road. And maybe have to unhook anyway. There are also times it seems like car owners just want to mess with us! Most are happy to oblige however.

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

Hey BarneyS, What Coach do you have that allows you so much access? It’s interesting when most do fifth wheel reviews they almost never shown with slides in. Knowing now there is no specific reason to unhook. I don’t quite understand why someone would? If there’s someplace you need to go sure. But otherwise I don’t see the reason for it. Barney, Do you find the unhitch and re-hitch for gas a big deal? I know you’d prefer not to, but is it that big a deal? And what hitch do you use?

RE: Anybody know what a rainbay/PDI facility is?

I know PDI… What is rainbay?

Anybody know what a rainbay/PDI facility is?

Hi guys, Is that a place where they check to make sure the Coach is water tight? That’s the only thing I can think of?

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

Yah Cummins12V98, Why make us look bad parking like that? Thanks for pointing that out Jerry, kind of mean spirited of him! :)

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

Hey Cummins12V98, nice paint job on your coach. I ordered my coach with full body paint. Anything as purdy as a fifth wheel needs to show out! I was looking at Alliance and decided against it because they didn’t offer it. I understand they do now. Thanks for joining in.

RE: Do you unhook for the night?

Yes I was responding the the previous poster. And the reason I mentioned about opening slides, especially a large slide. Is it May require the jacks extended to keep level and not put pressure on the frame.
