Propane question

Is there any way to fill/top off my 5lb tank from my 20lb tank? Do they sell hoses/connectors for this?

If you actually try this (I wouldn't, personally, there are people who get paid to transfer flammable fuel under pressure grin.gif ), under the best conditions, you won't be able to top it off, you'll just equalize the pressure between the two tanks. If the 20 pounder is full, and the 5 pounder is not, you will not get a full 5 pounder out of the deal, it will only become partially full, or if the 20 pounder is not full, you may actually lose fuel to the 20 pounder.

I wouldn't advise doing this at all. I would just take it in somewhere to fill it.

They do sell and you can do this operation. My uncle owns the hose/adapter and has refilled several tanks this way, possibly even the one-pounders. However, everyone's right about the safety issues. If you are going to do this please take caution and invest some time in learning how to preperly connect and fill the tanks, after all we are talking about flammable-pressurized products.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
