Raise LP Tank Cover and unhook the safety
chain.
Place your filled gas tank on the
Weighted

the Hooks of both Legs using the chain links
which hold your tank most securely.
See Fig.

is in the
full OFF position.
(Turn clockwise
to close.)
NOTE: When connecting the LP gas tank,
position the tank so its Hose and Regulator does
not interfere or rub against the Tank Cover which
will be raised and lowered often, possibly causing
damage to the hose.

have
a gas
leak
that
cannot
be repaired
by tightening,
turn
off the gas
at the
