When planning the known cost of winterizing I.E. antifreeze, anode rod, propane, battery tender, fiberglass insulation, duct tape, bungee cords, permanent covers.......

I didn't quite understand the auto-switchover gas regulator, so I ended up emptying both tanks in my 3rd season, so both tanks were in some state of discharge over two winters. (I'm guessing the first was partially full the first winter and empty the 2nd winter.)

I have a propane gauge that I attach to the tanks to see what is left in them when I open it up in the spring, that way I know if I have to fill my tanks or I'm good to go. The gauge doesn't cost that much and you can get them at places like General Trailer. Nice to keep with your unit so if you are camping you can check the level periodically. JT
