I ended up taking it to a Propane dealer here in OC. 1st we had to empty the tank and then he filled it to 15 lbs with pure propane gas, then empty and refilled about 5 or 6 times before refilling the tank with fuel. He said that many of the manufacturers are shipping the tanks under pressure and when the dealers fill them they do not evacuate the air containing moisture. When that moisture enters the valve at freezing temps it freezes inside the valve. It doesn't take much because the valves have very small orifices. We take it to the mountains in two weeks and will find out then if it did the trick. I did buy a 9000btu heater buddy just in case! Many thanks to all that replied.
