Propane tanks rnp 2-4-03  
Are the valves on the new OPD tanks the same for all size bottles? And can I change them out myself or do I need to get someone at RV or Propane Co. to change them out?

Re: propane tanks Patrick Newman 1-28-07  
Does anyone make a larger P Tank that can lay down in a RV undercarriage storage locker? All the tanks that I see are cylindrical w the valve top center. That configuration will not allow a very large tank because of the height restrictions standing up & laying down would put the liquid propane at the valve, not good either way. A longer hose does not work because of the liquid level still covers the valve? I can imagine 2 designs right off that would work and still maintain the cylindrical shape needed for a pressure vessel.
But, if no-one else has ever thought of this... then maybe I need to make them myself. I am looking for a new career at 58 yrs. anyway.
With wheels?

You can change them, but it really should be done at a propane place that will also be able to test them.

I have a 250 lb tank for the 7000 watt generator. How do I purge the excess air in the tank? The electrion cannot find anything wrong with the generator, but it won't start. The gas co. insists that its nor on there end, but the tech at Briggs and Stratton says we should have a small odor of gas when we get ready to start it up. No order at all It sounds like it is starving for fuel. Thank you, big storm comming Monday.

Joe thanks for the advice but what I really need to know is are the valves the same, say the valve for a 30# bottle the same as a 40# bottle.
Re: propane tanks Joe 2-5-03  
NO.....20, 30, and 40's are all different. That's why I suggested that the gas people do the installing of the valves. AND they should be tested afterward. You have to realize how dangerous what you want to do is. Brass valve, steel tank, maybe a steel wrench that could slip and cause a spark, or cold weather and a spark from a nylon jacket. Are you sure you will have it tight enough? will you be able to test it for leaks properly?
My uncle killed himself messing around with just what you are talking about doing.
