The date code on our tank is 1209. We got it last year after the first tank was recalled. We had to have that destroyed at our expense (certified letter) and then WM (actually LEHR) gave us a rebate.
The replacement tank obtained last year has a date code of 1209. OF COURSE the propane refillers think the manufacture date is Dec of 2009 instead of September 2012.
Apparently we are going to have to have the tank recertified (at our expense) after ONE YEAR OF USE! The tank should require recertification every 5 years. LEHR will not provide us a letter to correctly interpret the date code on the tank even though we requested it at the Miami Boat show.
