Propane delivery Tue, 05/28/13 8:52 AM (permalink)
[Helpful answer received] / [List Solutions Only]
I am trying to get propane or propane tanks delivered to my trailer but the companys I have talked to said they cannot deliver to something with wheels on it due to insurance issues. My question, is there a way around this? Thanks for any help you can give me.

    Guess it depends on location and company policy, I get propane to my location every Thursday , but rent a 100 gal tank from them. They won't fill my bottles though.

      Rent a tank with an additional liquid valve.  Then fill your own bottles.

          I plan on having 2-4 40 lb tanks. Someone said I would need one tank per day. Do you have to relight the pilots everytime you change tanks? Anyway around this?

            DOT tanks fall in this category (most BBQ style  20, 30, & 40 lb tanks);  the ASME tanks (usually 100lb & larger; & fixed smaller tanks) can be filled from a truck.     DOT tanks can be filled if the truck has a wt. scale and the proper relief valve ( some do. most don't).

              When I had my trailer, it was plumbed for 2 40lb tanks side by side that connected into a regulator with a 3 way valve. I could feed from the left tank, right tank, or both tanks at the same time. I usually ran one tank, then switched over as needed so I could swap out the empty. No relighting when done that way.

                   My trailer, is plumbed for 4 100 lb tanks side by side that connected into a regulator with a 3 way valve. I could feed from the left tank, right tank, or both tanks at the same time. I usually run one tank, then switch over as needed so I could swap out the empty. No relighting when done that way.
                  I forget what the type is called but a google search and you will see many Co. that sell them.(dual regulator,dual tank regulator?)
