Exactly. Especially in an RV, as you drive down the highway the liquid propane gets agitated, which helps keep the odorant from settling to the bottom of your cylinders in the first place.

Question puge lp tanks

Some of the liquid you might find could be from the nasty Odorant they put in the propane so you can smell it. Seems logical that after a few years there could be a bit of liquid from that nasty stuff.
there will not be any air into tank as my lp plant stated aluminum tanks, when recertify only look to see any welds or damage.
