Removal of propane tank.

Hi I need yo fill my propane tanks. Both empty. I took off wing nut of ring at bottom. The tanks are tight in there. What is the proper way to easily remove them?

I believe you have the 8528IKWS if I remember correctly.

Disconnect supply line and move off to side.
Remove wing nut and bolt from retaining ring.
Spread ring open by hand as far as possible.
Lift tank up and out through door.
Tight fit for sure but they do come out.

Thanks for the quick response. 2 tanks lasted for 10 months. Although only used for breakfast and furnace when necessary.
