    Hmm, I will check with my forklift supplier Monday.

    Hopefully I don't have to buy the whole assembly.



    I would like to replace the toggle latch band with the one on the bracket I currently have.

    I filled one of those bottles till the pump would not pump anymore into it at -35. Nothing happened to that forklift bottle inside at +15... dumb dumb tested.

    Isnt a forklift bottle rated for a higher pressure and the relief valve is set higher?

    The mechanic rather save the engine instead of rebuilding it so he ran towards it.....never have cold propane in warm building, just keeper outside I'd say

    How do you guys keep your furnaces on when traveling? Is the exhaust at the front of the v-nose?

    Should not be a problem running a furnace, fridge etc while running if they are Auto ignition which most are. If it is a pilot light, your furnace will just go out and the thermocouple shuts off the gas and your trailer will be cold.

    I would definitely not put bottles inside the trailer unless the cabinet is enclosed on the inside and vented to the outside. I have seen numerous relief valves letting off pressure with a 10 degree rise in temp and it just depends how full they are.

    Same for batteries which gas off hydrogen when charging. Quantity is small though and will generally only blow up the battery which usually happens when you have a spark at the terminal while boosting (personal experience here boosting a D8).

    Forklifts must be different as a full bottle for an RV will start pushing liquid propane down the line. Run a tiger torch off a regular bottle that is full and lay it on its side and you will see exactly what I mean. Not sure if the difference is in the bottle, the regulator or both on a forklift.

    Even a relatively small amount of gas will do significant damage in an enclosed space. One of my clients had a radiant heater malfunction and the resulting "poof" shifted a 50 X 150 quonset on its foundation. Sheared off some 3/4 inch bolts on one wall and ruined two 16 X 24 doors. Was about $50K to repair.

    I suggest caution here unless the main reason you like barbecuing on the gas grill is the possibility of an explosion .
