my stove is hook to a propane tank outside. it froze up 3 times today. we get the ice off of it by pouring room temp water on it. we wrapped the lines and the top in insulation and then plastic today. it just froze again. it's not the end of the world being without a stove, i have a woodstove and toaster oven. i'm just wondering what I can do temporarily till we can get a little house built around it. When we bought the tank, the guy at the hardware store said it wouldn't freeze.
