20lb propane tanks knowing when it get low or where yourout?

5 posts in this topic

I have a 20lb cyclinder that i been using for about a month. Last week the heater stop making noise but till putting out heat. Some people say there's a sticker that tell you when it's getting low but will it work in the winter time. Any help with knowing how to tell how much you got?

that sticker really only works when it is wartm out, you are supposed to splash water on it and the cold lp on the inside of the tank will make it change color. I always just pick up mine and shake it to see how much is in it. If it is less than half i will fill it, most places will only charge you for what they put into it. the exchanges are a ripoff IMO unless you have a crappy tank you wanna get rid of.

you're supposed to be able to pour hot water down the side of any propane tank...water runs off and the propane being so cold will leave a frost line at its level.

      A little damp (icy) and chilly this morning.   Had absolutely no gobbling ON the roost this morning.  Strange.   About 7am I had 3 birds gobbling close, behind the blind.  They went back and forth sometime before slinking off the SE.  Now all is quite and cold.   Giving them till 10 then off to work.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.
