Propane question???

13 posts in this topic

I recently discovered that I still have one tank with the "old" valve on it. Is it still possible to exchange the old ones, or have them re-fitted? Or should I just get rid of it?

Thanks.

Menards will exchange it. Its a few bucks more than an OPD exchange but at least you get the upgrade.

I don't think anyone actually gives any credit for them, I think they will just take them off your hands. As far as getting them retrofitted, you can buy a brand new 20lb for the same price. So unless you have some sort of attachment to the tank, send it down the road.

$16.99 exchange at Marnards, can not beat that, just a new style tank will run $25 you get a new tank and full of gas. I did it 2 times.

You did that with an old tank? Is that their policy, or are they just stupid.

Walmart and fleet farm do like wise. $16.99 exchange upgrade. I think the $3.00 rebate offer is still on for the Blue Rino at the above places.

Last time I exchanged at Menards, the teller asked me if it was an OPD tank or a non-OPD (old style valve) tank. They ring them up differently. The non-OPD exchange is about $3 more than an OPD exchange.

Are they stupid? Probably not. I'm sure there is a very good reason they still do this.

Exchanged 2 at Home Depot last summer. I think that it only cost me about $10.00ea.

they will take the old style and give you a new style? well that just bites. when they changed over they wouldn't take them so I got rid of them.Now I wish I would have hung on to them.

Don't feel too bad they didn't go to waste. People like me picked them up and took care of it. grin.gifgrin.gif

go to fleet farm or wally world, it's only like $12 to EXCHANGE a 20 lb tank that's not exchanging for the new valve though.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
