How to empty tank and purge properly
Last winter on our first outing, the furnace would stop and start repeatedly - which I eventually blamed on a poorly purged propane tank. I assume there was some moisture in the tank and the temps where we were camping were right at freezing - so ice formed and/or the regulator froze up.
Haven't had the issue since, but we haven't camped in cold weather either.
What I would like to do (and should have done immediately), is empty the tank, have it properly evacuated, purged, alcohol added (if needed) and refilled. This way I can eliminate the possibility of moisture being the culprit and ensure that there isn't moisture inside the tank causing corrosion.
I have about 1/4 of a tank left, so my plan is to run the external BBQ grill until it runs out. Any suggestions on how/where to have this tank properly serviced?
Thanks in advance.
