Between the small compartment door and the metal band-with-the-wingnut arrangement that secures the tanks... yeah, filling up my 5ver 30 lb tanks can be a challenge. I might need to modify the metal band arrangement at some point to make it a bit easier.
But I take them out and down the road to an LP dealer to get them filled. I have not asked about the cost of having one of his trucks come out to do the job.
Might be worth $10 to the teenager across the street to help you with them?
