30-lb propane tank
7.1 gal of propane
Used for cooking, temporary heating, propane-fueled appliances
Made of durable steel in the USA
DOT compliant with OPD (overfill protection device)
Outdoor use only
This propane tank works perfect for grilling at home, taking on camping trips and providing temporary heating.
The product is fine. It was the packaging I have an issue with. On both cylinders, due to
poor packaging, the valve guards were ...bent to the point that I had to use pliers to
straighten them out. You need to institute better packaging processes and procedures to
your employees to ensure products don't get damaged during shipping.
I ordered two of these 7.1 gallon cylinders, and they arrived as scheduled, and in good
shape. I am replacing two outdated bottl...es, instead of re-certifying the old ones. I was
disappointed to see that the dates on my new bottles were already 6 months old, but I
imagine that they have to keep the stock that far in advance to fill orders.
I ordered two of these tanks for rotational purposes for my camper and my gas grill. I
always have a full tank at home so that w...hen returning from a camping trip, I can swap
out the empty and I am ready to go camping again without waiting till I have time to go
get a refill.
About the product, I did the typical internet reviews & price checks and found Camping
World internet sales satisfied both areas.
The tanks came in well packaged with no signs of damage and ready to be filled. The
production date was only 2 months out so filling was a breeze. I recommend these
I ordered two of these tanks for my 5th wheel. They arrived on time but both tanks were damaged, one more than the other. The tank...s must have been boxed up that way because the boxes they came in were not broken or bent in any way. Now I have to go to the trouble of returning them and reordering new ones!
I purchased this tank a little over a year ago and kept it in storage until I needed it. I received it in a somewhat damaged condi...tion, the handle was bent some so I took a rubber mallet to re shape. It was in a single box without any protection, so needless to say the shipper banged it up in transit. I was still able to use and it works great to replace an older bottle or defective tank.
I ordered these to replace the two tanks on my Sunline TT, which were 12 years old. It made much better sense to buy new and not h...ave to worry about re-certifying for a long time. The tanks arrived intact in good packaging, manufactured in the same month I ordered them, and I look forward to using them a lot this year. Camping World really had a winner of a deal on these tanks and I appreciate it. Us retired folks have to watch every penny and I have more to watch thanks to this great deal.
I should have listened to all the other reviewers.The tank was horribly packed and arrived damaged. This was my first experience w...ith Camping World and it will be my last. How can they have reviews going back 3+ years talking about how horribly they package this product and not do anything about it? Crazy! Back to Amazon I go.
The regulation is that a tank must be recertified 12 years from the manufactured date, then every 5 years from the first recertification.

20# tanks to 30# tanks. In addition to the new tank cover, will I need a new screw (length) to secure these tanks in place on the holding base?

Bought a 2016 Cruiser RV Shadow Cruiser S240BHS. Trailer came with two 20# propane tank. Want to upgrade to two 30# tanks. Besides a new tank cover, will I need a longer screw to keep these securely attached to the base?
Between a 20# and 30# tank, the collar diameter and height, as well as the foot ring diameter generally does not change. However, the diameter of the body and overall height does tend to differ pending on how the tank manufacturer fabricated said tanks. If your propane mount uses a center rod and hold down tee configuration for the mount, yes you may need to get a longer rod to compensate for the height of the 30# tanks.

Will this size tank work with an outdoor fireplace
if a plumber installs it properly?
It will depend on what kind of connection the fireplace uses. This tank has a Type-1 OPD valve and accepts both a Type-1 ACME nut, like the average BBQ Grill, and POL connector via internal threads on the valve. If the fireplace has an attached hose with a regulator and ACME like a grill, this tank is suitable for use. If a propane hose was not provided or is not terminated in the same way, specs of the fireplace will have to be checked so an appropriate regulator can be obtained along with ACME Nut or POL connector for attachment to a refillable propane tank.

Actual filling of the tank should be handle by a gas/propane company who will have all the necessary equipment to fill a tank such as this. We do not carry the actual fittings and hoses used in the filing of a propane tank.

Can any existing propane be removed from the old tank and transferred to the new tank?
It is possible to transfer propane from an old tank to a new empty one. Whether or not the process can be performed is dependent on your propane gas supplier having the appropriate equipment.

If the 30# tanks are not prepurged where would I go to have this done?
According to the description, the tanks are already purged and just need to be filled.

A local propane distributor that will fill tanks for customers should be capable of doing so.

I have a Coachman 1981 21' popup trailer. The propane hose is setup to thread onto outside threads on the tank. This is different than the tanks I have used for gas grills. Will this tank work with this type of connection?
If the valve on your 20# is an OPD style like this 30# model, no. Only the reservoir size of your tank is changing since fittings and regulator requirements are the same.

How or where can I recycle my outdated tanks when my new ones arrive?
I purchased a fifth wheel and found out that the tanks are good for 12 years. Look in the yellow pages and find a propane place that can do a recertification on the tank it will be good for five years. It only cost about $25.00 or 30 dollars. If tank passes new date stamped and it is good for 5 more years. Hope this helps

Check your yellow pages for a local propane company, usually under 'Gas', to see if they accept old tanks. Your local recycling company may be worth checking in with as well. You can ask at locations that perform 'BBQ propane tank' exchanges if they will dispose of a used tank or the if the company that supplies them will do so.

Can you use the same hose hook-up for 20lbs to a 30lb hook-up?
If your 20lb tank is DOT compliant with an OPD valve, then your 'hook-up' will fit to item# 56065. The same valve type is used even though the size of the tanks are different.
