I bought a Manchester 20gal DOT approved propane tank on line for a lot less then new. The DOT chassis mount tanks do not have a recertify date on them like portable tanks do.

I have a 20 gal tank that runs just my stove and furnace. We go out about 3 weeks a year. I just fill it once a year. Good Luck, TomC

Manchester is one manufacturer of RV tanks, and eBay sometimes has used or even new ones for sale.   Why not have a biggish tank and some 20 lb cylinders, then you're covered either way.   Because propane doesn't go bad with age, you could have a tank as big as will fit  -  who cares how long the propane sits in it until you use it?   Actually, that's been my overall criteria for deciding how big tanks, how many batteries or solar panels, how much propane, etc, to have in the bus  -  I simply have the most that will fit!   When do folk ever complain about having too much of anything in a bus, whether storage space or consumable supplies?   It may be overly simplistic, but it works for me!

throw out bearings and S cam bushings would be some that come to mind...

Fridge and water heater use insignificant amounts of propane. The furnace uses quite a bit more if it is cold out.

I have a horizontal tank, but would prefer 2 or 3 20 or 30 pounders that can be taken to town with the towed for refill. We have had to pull up stakes just to go refill the bus. One of these days, I'll go back to portable cylinders.

I'm going to start the greasing process on all the fittings i can find on the 4104 , I know there are fittings such as the throw out bearing and others where you can not see how much grease you are putting in.  Is there any way to tell besides how many pumps on the grease gun ?  Is it possible to over grease and cause problems or does the excess grease just come out of an overflow?

Thanks, Nelson

Looking to install a horizontal propane tank into my bus and not sure how to determine what size I need. Will have a fridge, furnace and possibly a water heater (if I don't get an Aqua Hot). Where is a good place to find a tank? Would like to get one that has the fill valving on the end instead of the middle.
Any ideas? how long with these items running will a 100# tank last?

Don't grind or weld within 10 feet of your windshield without protecting it with a welding blanket.  The sparks will melt the laminated coating and you will be left with hundreds of permanent rust spots.  You can probably guess how I know. LOL
