Hi all my first post here. Sometime back there was talk of having to change burner jets if you wanted to use the Westy stoves in the mountains. I live in the flatlands (Chicago) but plan on camping…Continue

Anyone want a old OEM LP tank? Chicago

Hi all I replaced the old LP tank on my 85 Westy with a new Go Westy tank and was wondering if anyone could use the old one. It's has some surface rust but looks like it could be sandblasted and painted. It has the valves & regulator and protective plate. I don't remember if it has any leaks but if someone wants to check it out come get it. I'm in the Chicago (north) area if you want to pick it up. Thanks. Happy Camping.SpencerSee More

"I used to live in North Carolina, and now live in Colorado. The stove in my bus has worked both places no problem. I'm at 6600 feet - not sure if it is a problem higher than where we are at, but it works fine here with no mods. I don't…"

propane stove at higher elevations

Hi all my first post here. Sometime back there was talk of having to change burner jets if you wanted to use the Westy stoves in the mountains. I live in the flatlands (Chicago) but plan on camping in the Rockies next year. I have just installed a new tank and regulator. Can someone comment on what mods I will need for using the stove up there. Thanks and good luck.Spencer85 Westy02 MVWKSee More
