    I thought about those, but opted to get tanks with gauges built in at Costco. Makes it easier to check level of my tanks on my trailer without the extra length of the inline gauges.

    These things are not even close to linear, they stay green until the tank is empty..... More accurate to just pick up the tank and guestimate.

    Odd... because I tested them on 3 tanks and all three tanks read at different spots in the green section.

    Yep. And they will remain green until they are just about empty.

    A luggage scale works better and is cheaper.

    you need to use propane for a least five minutes before checking fuel level. Bought it so I don’t have to pick up the tank until gauge shows red. Went thru a tank since install, the gauge from HF worked really good plus it has a flow restraint mechanism in case line breaks. A few years ago a home near me had the gas line pop off on a grille and flamed the back of their house. Didn’t know gauge had it when I bought it. A big plus.

    I'm not sure that is an asset. Chassis grease really gums up with dust when it sits for a long time. There are no seals, so I know those casters will be pretty stiff after a few years. I'd just give them a shot of something that would lube when you needed to move the case.

    Probably not, they aren’t sealed but I did give them a shot of thick moly. I don’t plan on the box being mobile so it’s not really a concern.

    Bought the avanti paint sprayer today. With the coupon. I will see how it goes tomorrow. Probably should have bought the larger sized nozzle but we shall see.

    That is a good deal. I have done 1.5 house exteriors with the discontinued $169 HF Krause&Becker sprayer that this one seemingly replaced. I ended up upgrading to Fine Finish LP Rac-X tips which operate at ~half pressure of the stock tip which drastically cuts down on overspray. Size 312 for eaves and 616 for open walls. The FF LP Rac-X tips are expensive but the better finish and less overspray are worth checking out.
