Propane Bottle size

Recommended Posts

What size propane bottles is everyone running on their wheel house? I have a Suburban 30k btu forced air heater and Suburban rv stove/range. I have 20lb bottles for stuff around the house. Just not sure they will last a long weekend and really want to learn the hard way if i dont have to haha

I use a 100 pounder. 20 pounders work for me but when the weather gets reall chilly having a bigger tank helps prevent regulator freeze up.

100 pounder is prolly overkill as it lasts me like forever. Iffin I were you I would think of upgrading to a 30 pounder just in case. Running out of gas and frozen regs suck on the ice in the middle of the night.

20 lbers will not be efficient to burn a 30,000 btu furnacr. U will loose pressure for one thing after a half tank and also will whip thru the first half pretty quick. A 30000 furnac needs. 30 lb tank or bigger

Do you cook quite a bit while you are out there? Im also putting on outdoor grill but will most likely run a seperate tank and hook up for it

No sir no sir not fun at all. Ive spent 15 or more years in a house of somekind on LOW, anther 10 before that in portable of some kind and 10 with dad in the truck before that. different things work for different set ups. but bottom line to avoid trouble, big heater big tank, spare regulator.

    • Oh, you haven’t seen me upset.  After I miss 5 straight - then I get upset! 😁
    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
