1lb. Propane Tank Holder

Got tired of chasing 1lb. tanks around storage compartments.
A 4" hole saw and scrap 1X6 pine boards is all it took.

Two or three holer.

Good idea! Do you use a refill adapter to fill the 1 lb. cylinders? I have been thinking about buying one.

looks like twenty of those would take up five times as much space as one 20 lb cylinder !! LOL

Ohh nice idea with the holders. I thought I was the only one that chased them down in storage. One last thing on my list is a box of some kind that is mounted under the frame that will carry things like the hot water rinse wand, the electrical plug adapter, the water line blow out plug, an extra hot water tank rod, and some other misc items that are still rolling around somewhere in the storage slide box. Maybe I can make it long and tall enough to not rub anything and still be able to put the 1lb bottle holder and these other items in all at once (without having to move it every time I need something is the key there).

Propane in storage...

I have a couple of those cylinders that I use for my grill. I keep them in the side storage compartment that is under the bed in my unit. I never worried about it until last trip when I removed one from my grill and the valve stuck open. I tried several times to close it, but ended up letting it escape outside. It got me wondering if it is safe to keep those cylinders under there! I like the rack you made, but I have been considering making a rack that I can put outside next to my larger cylinders and battery on the tongue. I am considering just getting an extra battery box and putting a couple in there. Any ideas?

I was refilling 1 lbs tanks with the adapter and a 20lb tank. After only a few refills later as I took the 1 lbs tank off the adapter after filling it, the propane was coming out very rapidly. The valve did not close. Luckily I have big front yard so I tossed it as far as I could to let it safely empty. I no longer refill them. lol
