    The propane will leave the locker as soon as the mass of the propane exceeds that of the water left in the 'trap'. It may still leave a little left in the locker but not much (again, roughly the same...

    Cory - are they mounted to a bracket or directly to the flat Fiberglass wall in the locker? I'd be curious to see that install as well. I'd also be interested to see a confirmed "direct from Ericson"...
