RE: Propane tank inside or outside of RV?

At any rate, my question has been answered. I'll keep the Wave 6 mounted where it is with hose going outside to 20 lb propane tank. Crack a window and 1-2 open ceiling vents. Eventually, if I keep this RV long term or next RV, I'll look into attaching it to the RV propane line - though I do like the portability of my current solution.

RE: Propane tank inside or outside of RV?

Question - I read in another post that storing or leaving a propane tank on its side instead of standing up can also lead to loss of pressure. For our trip to Mt. Baker, I believe I actually did store the tanks on their sides in my RV storage box before standing them up for the fire. Any truth to this?

RE: Propane tank inside or outside of RV?

Thank you for that. I was going to hold off on linking it to my RV lines until I knew how long I was keeping this unit. Going with the 20 lb tank outside for now.

RE: Propane tank inside or outside of RV?

Got it. Well I'll stick with my outside 20lb tank powering the Olympian Wave 6 in the RV and see how this weekend goes. I definitely can't rely on the RV furnace as it takes too much from the house battery.

RE: Propane tank inside or outside of RV?

Thanks for the explanation. I had this problem dry camping at Mt Baker in January where the 20lb propane tank appeared to be freezing up then the regulator freezing up, then the gas fire started to go out. Until we poured hot water on the regulator and the fire came back. Inside the RV, the Wave 6 was putting out heat but pretty minimally so I suspected (but didn't confirm) the same thing was happening with freezing regulators. Looking at this article, I wonder if how I transported or stored the propane tank could have caused this. www.propane101.com/propaneregulatorfreezing.htm

RE: Propane tank inside or outside of RV?

Thank you for that explanation. So if I want to connect it propane inside (without linking it to the RV propane) - I could connect it to the 1 lb small canister?

Propane tank inside or outside of RV?

I'm taking my class C (27') up to the mountains this weekend where there will be no electrical hookups. I'm using my recently purchased Camco Wave 6 cat heater. On previous trips, I cracked a window and ran the propane hose outside to a 20 lb propane tank. But recently, started having problems with regulator freezing on the tank that I suspect was cutting off gas to the Wave 6 heater. Can you all remind me what the risks are of keeping the tank inside the RV? Is it a gas leak issue, explosive issue? I've seen some folks build a small compartment for the propane tank and keep it inside. Thanks all!
