Re: Gas pressure

I've got a year left on the 10 lb. propane tank. I might replace it with a 5 lb.

Re: Gas pressure

I have a tree as well, but don't use it since the stove is butane ( boils water in seconds compared to propane ).
I don't find having the propane lamp on a tree attached to a 10 or 20 lb. tank convenient. It never seems to be where I need it.
And, as I age, I find I can't stay up late enough to need a lamp anyway.

You make an excellent point. My "system" of hoses is a carryover from the days when I pulled a small tent trailer with a Honda Accord and space was at a premium. Now that I have a 19' trailer with a front storage bin, I have to room to carry all kinds of extra stuff that I dismissed before as being too big. The biggest consumer of gas for my stove used to be heating water. Now that I have an on-board water heater, I could even go with 1 lb tanks if I didn't mind filling up the landfill sites.
