Finally got my tanks re certified --Heritage Propane hear Townsend Tn..Did both tanks NO CHARGE . These folks have be more than kind to us on other occasions. Whenever we camp In GSMNP we fill up here. Finally thought to ask and they were most obliging. So if you are headed to Cades Cove, remember these folks.

I took one of the original 30 lb. tanks from my '68 Overlander in to my local propane dealer today. They have 1968 stamped on the neck and are not the best looking tanks you have ever seen. They are replacing the valve with OPD for $30.99 and re-certifying them for free. They said they would do the inspection and not replace the valve if it does not pass.

These tanks have a "bleeder valve" on them. My first question was can they refill with this on there. The answer, "no problem".

New white steel 30 lb. tanks were $60 and they sell aluminum for $120 (special order, 2 weeks).

I bought the Marshall Regulator that they sell for $35. Given what I have read here about failures, I think I will buy another regulator and put it in my tool box. Looking for a simple solution to mount this reg. to my old cast aluminum tank hold-down. Anyone have a good modification?

I went with the replacement copper lines from tank to reg. instead of rubber. Rubber lines make me nervous on an RV. Maybe on the deck on the grill, but not at 65 mph!

Where are you finding the copper lines? I have looked & cannot find them. I have one original copper line on my '67 and one rubber. I would like two new hard lines. Thanks, John

John:

I bought them at my propane supplier for $5 each! The end fittings alone would be more than that at my local hardware store.

It is a Ferrellgas store in WI.

They use the Marshall auto changeover regulator with the copper lines on dual 100lb. tank setups for cabins and small homes so they keep both on hand.

Remember that with copper pigtails you can get scaling inside them over time. So when you disconnect and reconnect the pigtails, avoid bending them. That is why they use rubber on applications where there is constant movement, especially in tight spots... Also never leave a copper pigtail open to the air for a length of time as air/humidity accelerate the scaling process.
