When I get my new Jayco in a couple weeks, you can anticipate more questions from me.
You must be squirming to get started with the new rig. When I went from SunnyBrook to Jayco, it was not to difficult, just appliances made by different manufacturer and some other technology differences.

Hello all...
Just thought i would toss in my .02.
Up here in Canada where most of us do a lot of "boon-docking", a 30lb propane tank can be gobbled up by the fridge, water heater and furnace in as little as a week. I leave one tank off so I "KNOW" that i am going to have to drive 25, 50+ miles to refill. I do not include cooking in that usage as i cook outside on the Brinkman stove or Roadtrip grille. That runs off a 20lb BBQ tank and a propane tree. If it comes to switching tanks at 2 or 3 AM when it is -freakin cold, i am happy to do so in my house coat and slippers. Tiz all part of the adventure.

Happy Camping all. Let the years adventures commence!!

There is a very nice state park near me named 'Dead Horse.' Maybe one day we should have a 'Jayco Owners Forum' get together there.

My swift (2013 198rd) I have no indicator and I've been just opening both valves. should I open just one so I know when im out in it (the one open), then switch to the second one while I work on refilling the first one? hope that made sense...

The green/red indicator is in fact a simple gauge. Less green or more red color indicates lower amount of gas. One can guess the amount easy enough. Should this be a problem, there are various in-line gauges available. Think I paid about $20 for mine.

Am I the only one that is happy to have 20's instead of 30's so I have the option of useing the exchange places on the road? Or are there 30 lb exchanges that I've never seen?.....Although, it was a bit annoying to exchange my brand new perfect white tank for a rusty brown one

Having your existing tanks filled at a LP gas fill station is almost always a better value from a price point. And yes I would hate to trade in my new 20lb tanks for some 20 yr old paint over rust refurb. The exchange tanks also only have 15lbs in them.

I can see your point about filling on the road, but with my twin 30`s on the trailer I ve never had to attempt that, always get them filled locally.

There are no 30 lb exchange tanks that I am aware of. I also get them filled at a LP dealer, and with many of them they will fill a partial tank and you pay for only what you get...

I was having some back problems so I took my empty 30lb tanks out of my 5th wheel and put 20's in there. Much easier for me to lift and I have not had any inconvenience from the lower propane on board.
