Looking for advice on a wall/ceiling mounted propane light for my cabin.
Been using the ones that use 1# tanks but want @omething brighter and mounted.
Any brands that are good/safe/reliable?

I have Paulin and Humphrey brands in my cabin very similar. Both brands serve me well. Others I have scavenged from RV's being dismantled like Coleman, they work well also.
Multiple lights on one line requires 3/8 copper, I ran 5/16 and the last light struggled. Went to 3/8 problem solved.

If you've got a local Amish hardware store they will get you all set up.

lehman's store has what your looking for

https://www.lehmans.com/category/gas-lights

however most of the Amish here are going to solar charged battery powered LED we have sort of liberal Amish as Amish go

they are a lot safer for fire risk and don't produce the heat

the Amish grocery with the LP piping on the ceiling and gas lights , you get more heat than light they hardly even need heat in the winter just run more gas lights as it is darker

they do have a few LP heaters that will be running on very cold days

in the summer they tray to use no gas lights


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

How many lights can you run on one line with the 3/8?

I have 3 lights on the 3/8 line, length is aprox 30 foot, from half the 1/2 inch propane feed line.

Humphrey gas light is the best in my opinion
