Winterizing question

So it's almost time to start to put our Georgetown 340TS to bed for the winter. So is it better to fill the propane tank before storing or leave it with 1/4 tank?

I will search the forum for other winterizing tips.

Thanks in advance

Either way...doesn't much matter...I decided to fill ours simply because propane prices are the lowest they have been all year so may as well take advantage of it, in case price goes up before spring....and it will just be one less thing to do come springtime.

I have a 300 gal propane tank in my yard and it hit's -50 sometimes here never had a problem yet. Had more problems with a small 20 lb tank in summer with a regulator freezing up on a hot humid day.

Almost all propane everywhere is stored outside year round.
I wouldn't worry about it unless you know something about the price going up.

I generally fill them in the fall, so that in the spring I don't have to remember to fill them, as well as, if there is a major power outage, I have an alternate source of heat or fuel easily accessible.
