I see a need to do most of my grilling on my Weber Q1200 in the national forest this summer. I would like to take my 20# tank instead of the little $$$ one pound tanks that are hard to install. My old fiver has limited storage so the tank would have to ride in the truck bed. Any good solutions to securing a 20# tank from moving about on the road and from walking away when parked for shopping? I'm thinking a milk crate would stabilize it and a lock cable.

YEP^^^^
Milk Crate and then secure it in place with straps
Potable propane cylinders fit perfectly in those and strapped they will stay put


Is it time for your medication or mine?

Over a decade ago we purchased a couple propane tank holders for our truck bed, still in use today. We have a locking metal rolling tonneau cover over our bed eliminating theft issues, we use bungee straps to keep propane tank in place. Amazon has a plethora of propane tank holders for truck beds, some are pretty nifty and are lockable as well.

Milk crate, and never locked it. Most will not even see it in the truck bed.

I use one to power my generator. I have a 5th wheel so I put it in the front storage, but just use a box - the size of a milk crate - works great and was free...

I would also look into an Extend-a-flow
Egg crates work, but should add a cable (dog tether) and pad lock for security.

Look into extend a flow or get the LP adapters required to connect your grill to the RV's LP system.

Been carrying one since we started fulling timing in a milk crate. Never locked it up. Guess I trust people. Now on 12th year on the road.
