Propane Tank wont fill

Post by Dan Corcoran » Sun Aug 27, 2017 7:07 pm

My first time filling propane tank, the filling station cannot get propane to go in the normal nozzle.

Is there a trick? What is that extra large connector on the tank for, does the propane go in there?

Probably a broken stem or seat on the valve. It fills like any other propane tank through the outlet where the regulator attaches.

Does this then require a new tank, or is the valve replaceable?

Is there a good source for tanks already setup to mount in J109's?

Float seems ok, I can here it moving inside at the angle expected moving the tank

As a temporary workaround, I found someone who can fill the tank through the additional connection on the tank

I ran into this two years ago. I believe the tank needs to be filled while on its side like when mounted in the locker.
