Definitively replace those drilled out pigtails.

Reading the article that Lou posted, combined with the 1 that I posted, gives me a better insight on how the whole system works. Until reading Lou's link, I did not know that we need to insert a pigtail on the cylinder to open up the OPD so there can be flow out of the cylinder. Knowing that now, maybe 1 of the 1st things we can advise members that can't get their propane flowing is to make sure the pigtail is screwed on hand tight.

According to paragraph 4 in Lou's link, I incorrectly used the word "tank" instead of "cylinder". We have removeable "cylinders" on our TTs and 5th wheels, but there are non-removeable "tanks" on motor homes.

i liked the propane 101. the only safety that i knew abt was the over fill protection.
we had blow out protection on sight glasses at work; wondered why they weren't used on travel trailers. apparently they are built into the system.

Guys, please be careful with those pig's tails. If they move from one side to the other, gas will pass!
