Another recommendation is...if you have dual propane tanks...only use one at a time. That way the will not both run out of both at the same time and leave you cold...

yep, we never use the auto changeover setting. i would rather have to get up and switch to the full tank, than wake up to no propane at all.

it has to match the other battery in specs.
the best thing is to buy the same exact battery.

loobdyloo - the pantry you asked about it an option (or it was when I got my PUP). You had asked about how to get one, have your dealer order it. Welcome to the forum and happy camping.
