Yes, upon further reflection removing a working appliance like a fridge doesn't seem like one of my better ideas, what can I say it was 1 in the morning. I always preferred the drinks were on ice, but for food the fridge is way better.

I think we're going to camp it next weekend, sure am anxious to get out there in the Argy and have some fun.

All new propane lines is very easy to do for anyone the least bit handy. You just need to learn how to flare the pipe. After two times practicing and it goes real easy. The best advice is to buy a good tool though, the cheap ones at the orange box do a very poor job. Sometimes it is hard to swallow a $60 tool instead of a $12 one, but one wasted hour is worth a lot more. Rigid makes an excellent tool that holds the pipe with out slipping (orange box version always slips) and flares it to a perfect angle.

I'm with Frank, cheap flaring tools just make the job harder. If you want one that will last a lifetime, check out this one from Yellow Jacket. A little spendy, but worth every penny.

Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
