When heartland switched from 40’s to 30’s in the Landmarks their response was that the change was based on consumer response to the extra weight. Yet when all the members of the club and forum were queried no one looking to or who recently bought wanted smaller tanks.

Given the choice I would prefer to deal with the extra 10 pounds of propane quantity and resulting tank weight less frequently that extra quantity allows.

I don’t use the auto switchover. I use the outer tank until empty. I’ll then use the inner tank until I get it filled. Filled tank then goes to the inner.

I’m still on my first tank with this trailer, but with 30’s in the previous trailer I was getting about a season and a half out of a tank.

On a side note, when filling tanks at the Local Ace hardware the ‘kid’ asked me what the 56# was sharpied on the tank. Told him that is what it is supposed to weigh when filled. He said ‘oh’ and took it back to the fill station.

I have only been to one facility that charged by gallons dispensed. I would think small propane tank filling is something state ‘weights and measures’ could oversee.
