What temp causes propane to stop flowing properly?

Propane cylinders should never be put inside the unit. It's a code violation and extremely unsafe.

Now come all the replies saying I have done this for years and never had a problem. That proves nothing. Ask a gas expert or a firefighter.

Having lived in the far north all of my life l have had to deal with propane in very cold conditions. In this area anyone that uses propane to heat their houses have electric tank heaters on their tanks.
That being said it is the regulator that will give you freezing problems and because of the changing of state from a liquid to a vapor that causes the regulator to be very cold the more propane you are using the more chance it will freeze up.
One trick that is used with success is to place a trouble light by the regulator the incandesant bulb will create enough heat to keep it from freezing. I realize this is not a good solution for dry camping.

I just purchased Cedar Creek 36CKTS which has 2 30# propane tanks. I and my wife are living in the unit full time. I am now caught in the Maryland snow storm. Last night the temperature was 9 degrees. No problem with propane flow for my heating and water system. Tomorrow the temperature is expected to go down to 4 degrees. I am more concerned with my water. The Creek has the arctic package, but that is advertising.

I use LP for the kitchen range in my home in Maine. We hit 35 below zero and everything worked fine.
