Attaching 1lb cylinders

Question

The Chemist

Has anyone ever had a problem w/ hooking these up? this weekend I tried to put them on my Mr. Heater and all I got was liquid propane shooting onto my fingertips. I tried 2 different bottles and the same effect. Now I'm missing a good bit of skin off my finger tips. Next time I guess I'll where my gloves.

I've noticed that 1 lbrs of different manufactures or sold under different names somtimes don't work with my propane run gadgets. For instance , once in a while I can't get them threaded decent to my Mr.Heater but the same bottle will work on my lantern or vise versa.
Hav'nt had much trouble with Coleman bottles but the brand X ones give me trouble like that once in a while.

These were Coleman bottles. I've never seen the liquid propane come bubbling out of the bottle like it did. Typing is hard this morning w/ bad-aids on.

Hard to say with out seeing at what point it came out. If the valve stem was engaged by your appliance to earlier or if your rubber gasket might be missing or shot groved as to not seal.

Chemist, I had the same thing happen this weekend w/ a Coleman 1#'er while hooking up my little propane grill. Pretty sure it was because of the cold that made the valve stuck - probably a little frozen moisture in there. Didn't have it spray on me but it could have. Was your cylinder out in the cold?

I've also had problems with a couple cylinders not wanting to thread onto my heater this year.

Yeah they were out in the cold. I originally had my 5lb tank hooked up but it didn't work well. So I tried switching over then I jad the whole episode. So I decided to g oback to the 5lb. It ran okay for a couple of hours but then started to lose it's red glow. So then I packed it up and went home. CO poisoning isn't my favorite way of spending time on the ice. Had one near death run in with it in the past don't want to again.

I had this happen to my heater. I was lucky and didn't get any propane on my hands. I went back to using my 20lb tank with the heater. It didn't work very well at first but since I filled the tank it works great.

Sounds like we've all had problems. I found that it's real easy to cross thread the tank fitting, and if you feel any difficulty when you first start screwing it in-STOP! Make sure it's going into the tank fitting square and go slow at first. Once it's cross threaded, you are "screwed." If it's cold in your hut and it's your last tank, you are doubly "screwed." Hope this helps. The fittings on your propane accesories should all be the same size and standard. So says Hank Hill.

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.
    • Mike89
      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!
    • Uncle Boney
      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think. 
    • BigVwalters
      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".

      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.

      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket

      Angling regulations on Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River in northern Minnesota would change under a proposal being considered by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to reduce the number of walleye and sauger allowed to be kept in the winter on the lake, and on the river allowing only catch-and-release fishing for those fish in the spring.  “We recently went through a public process of updating the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan and identified several potential areas of concern with regard to current levels of harvest,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette fisheries supervisor. “That’s why we’re discussing these potential changes.” The proposed changes would reduce the aggregate limit of walleye and sauger in the winter to align with the summer regulations on Lake of the Woods, and make spring angling on the Rainy River catch-and-release for walleye and sauger. The changes would go into effect starting March 1, 2019. Anglers will see yellow signs at public water accesses around Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River later this month notifying the public of the proposal. Future news releases will provide the details of a formal public comment period during the fall, and will include ways to provide comment to the DNR on the proposal. For more information on Lake of the Woods management go to mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
