Works great.
Garbonz...a little confuzzeled here. Why do you have to turn on the stove?

Edit:
Amazon has the IR Thermometers with laser pointer for $17.00

You have to get the LP vaporising to show a temperature difference

Thank you for your suggestions. I will try some of them out next time I have the trailer in a place where can get to the tanks.

Bathroom scale for me over many years. Thanks "Joe GA" for that one. The "Truma Level Check" looks like a nice new toy to have.

I purchased one of the level gauges gasman posted the picture of. I had the local propane/BBQ company order it. I have it installed on the door side tank. When the other tank runs out, I can closely monitor the door side tank to give me lots of heads up time to get more propane. It seems to very accurate.
