Refillable propane tanks and accesory hoses

4 posts in this topic

How are you guys rigging your refillable tanks with accesory hoses, to feed two appliances? I want to run a buddy heater and a lantern off a five pound refillable tank. I would prefer to have the tank outside my portable to save space.

I think your only option is those trees, but your tank needs to be where the lantern is then, unless you got a hose for each t?? I figger the lantern is a pain with the mantels and glass breaking all the time so I have been bringing a small battery and a 12v lite bulb on a pigtail w/clamp on it I can put it where ever i want and get plenty time after dark with the bat
another option would be to have a heating person make you some sort of T you could attach to your tank?? good luck...

I think minneman is right. A tree sits on top of the tank and your lantern sits on that. Not sure how you would attach a plain hose to a lantern and make it useable.

Thanks for the replies,
I guess I had been thinking I would just hang the lantern, But I have reminded myself that I use the lantern outside the house for chasing tip-ups, etc. So I have decided to go with just a single hose to the heater, and continue using the one pounders for the lantern. They can be a pain, and require lots of care, I may have to try the 12V light this year.

    • Except for the fact that to Hillary Minneapolis/ St Paul is rural fly over territory. Outstate doesn't even exist and I would rather that rural areas are left to make their own choices rather than have what they do be dictated by the Capital.    If you ever ran a small city hall and saw the additional dollars it takes to do an infrastructure project with the USDA involved you might think a bit differently about all the " help" big government provides. 
    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.

    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
