What is the problem that people have when the tank is not in the freezer? I thought it was that the regulators changed their outputs with temperature changes. Am I wrong?
If there are no problems then having everything outside of the freezer is better for space conservation inside.
Regulators do not change output pressure with temperature changes. I've never heard of anyone having problems because their regulator isn't in the fridge/freezer.
Having the regulator at room temperature or warmer is actually better than keeping it cold, since it will react faster to adjustments. When it's kept cold and you adjust it from say 10 psi to what you think is 14 psi, you might have actually set it to 15-16 psi without knowing it because it's slow to react.
