Propane status

Planning an extended trip and wondered what is the best way to know the amount of propane in a tank without waiting until an appliance won't light?

Unless it is windy or sitting in the sun the tank should have condensation on it after an appliance that has a fairly heavy demand (stove, cold water heater) has been running for a few minutes. It will be roughly at the level of the liquid in the tank.

pROPANE lEVEL IN tANK

Does anyone know if those stick-on film thermometer type gauges work? I've seen them on outdoor grill tanks.

Camping World sells a propane gauge that attaches to the valve for 25 bucks but I have had no experience with it.

John has the best suggestion, but you could also use one of those inline gauges that camping world sells. Screws onto the OPD fitting and then you attach your pigtail to that.

You could also weigh your tanks, first full, then an empty tank for comparison and then compare once a week or so. You'll at least get a workout!
