My Dad laughed at me when I told him I keep one tank turned off, that I manually switch over when one runs out, even though I have an automatic changeover gizmo.

No thanks. After a few times swapping tanks in the middle of the night I installed an automatic and life has been wonderful ever since.


That will change the first time you run both tanks dry in the middle of the night. [emoticon]

If he is using that much propane, it won't matter whether it is manual transfer or automatic. The manual transfer just makes him get up twice, once to transfer to the second tank, and again to cuss because he ran both tanks dry.

Don't count on that.
I would simply buy and carry two additional 30# cylinders if that became an issue.

And yes I have camped in the cold and burned some serious propane. If the regulator is checked at least once a day in harsh conditions you just don't run out.
