Default new propane bottle issue

So, as I take care of long neglected maintenance items, I went down to fill a propane bottle and it was out of date. So, bought a new one and brought it home and low and behold the "holes" at the top are not the same for inserting the hold down bar. Also, the new bottle seems a wee bit fatter than the old bottle and the cover doesn't want to fit anymore. anybody else run into this and know a good recommendation for the appropriate replacement parts?

And, also, what do folks use for patching holes in ceilings apparently caused by somebody leaving a sponge mop standing in the shower while lowering the trailer ( in defense, sort of, it was hidden behind a shower curtain)?

cheers

Rick

Default Thoughts on patching ceiling hole.

We all have our oops stories. If the hole is small enough you could cover it with a plastic rosette. My next thought is a piece of externa bond tape. I have a roll of white if you need a piece. I just took my propane tank to a propane place to have it certified. With a fill up and certification it was only $17.50. The certification was &7.50. I didn't want to be traveling and unable to fill up with propane because it was out of date. We live close enough to an Indian reservation that sells propane tax free.

Rick, I have had the same problem but I have always managed to turn the bottles slightly so they are still positioned in an upright position (not tilted), tighten down the retaining bar and get the cover over the bottles. If the bottles even have a slight silt the cover will not fit properly. This works for me but no guarantees for you.
