Check your propane tank

Hi , I live in Ontario,Canada and have a 2006 3500DS. I just removed the 100 lb propane tank due to stone chips and rust. If you have one you should check to make sure you don't have any problems. I will try to add pics.Click image for larger version

Are any of you using the Viking non metal tanks? If so, are they worth the extra cost for a lighter load and can you truly see the propane level?

tanks here in NB are visually inspected at refill stations and can be condemned at any time. they also have a 10 yr max life before having to be recertified. Generally by that time they are trash anyway.
good idea to replace yours.

The 3500DS is a motorhome. It's pretty common to see 100# LP tanks in them.

In a MH it would be called a "chassis tank",meaning it is bolted to the frame.
