Not for the wet vac, I just used my bead blasting nozzle and inserted the sand suction hose into the anode hole and sucked the junk out that way. Was absolutely amazed at the amount of stuff that accumulated in a 2.5 year old tank. I will do the same this spring before we fill the tank again. It is so easy IF you have the stuff to do it with.

Both are over temp switches. One shuts off 120VAC side the other the 12V/Propane side. You always need to check both unless you can remember which one does which.

I think the one on the left is 120v. Don't really remember. CRS.

I wonder if this would work on that problem like it does tranfering fluid from 55gal barrel to smaller containers. I've taken a small clear tubing and down near the end of hose for smaller container, punched a thru hole and used a long nose air blow gun aimed toward smaller container jnserted thru hose to create a siphon effect?

When we had the dwarf car that used methanol, we bought 55 gal drums of fuel and screwed an outdoor faucet with a hose connection into the small threaded hole and took the large screw in cap and installed a tubeless valve stem in it and put about 10-15# of air in it and filled the portable tanks. Had the barrel on a 4 wheel dolly and just wheeled it close to the car or trailer.

Never did, lucky I guess. Only did it for 4 years (summers).

Where did you buy them? Looks great

Ebay: search LCD thermometer. They start at $1 a piece and there are many varieties to choose. I like the ones I got with the blue back light because it matches my Genesis 3.0 lighting.
Here's a thread on it.
