Thats where they are supposed to be. Keep it out of direct sunlight and it will be fine!

Yeah, isn't that kind of a rule, outside only?

Outside is a lot safer. If they start to leak or gas off, you sure don't want it contained in the garage. That could get pictures of your house's remains on the evening news.

I don't think leaving them outside hurts them. If that was the case the local LP dealer wouldn't leave 100's of them outside all the time. grin

Got a point, plus all the farms with those big tanks as well. Like I said earlier, I have always heard that outside is the way to go

Right on thanks. I've never dealt with anything bigger than a 1 pounder. Always used charcoal grills smile

I take it in the summer just cover it up outa direct sunlight?

I actually don't think sunlight even bothers them. I have mine on my grill in the sun, no problems.

Yah, if I had an explosion for every 20lb tank I see sitting in the sun all summer, I wouldn't have to put up with some of my neighbors anymore. smile The only thing wrong with letting them sit outside is that its a way for passer-bys to save $25 by stealing yours. frown

    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
    • Very quiet so far.  Maybe one distant gobble on the roost but couldn't tell for sure. At least the mosquitos seem to have calmed down in the last 10 minutes some.
