Empty Propane Tank Mystery Solved

We've had our 2019 Jayco Eagle 355mbqs since April 2019. We've taken several trips but only used the furnace a couple of days in May up in Kansas City. Other than that, just cooking on the stove top, oven and a few times on the grill. So our last trip we're cooking and there's no gas. Tank is empty. I switch over tanks and problem solved. Only thing is, there's no way we used a 30 pound LP tank since April. So while the 5'er was in the shop this week, I had the empty tank filled. Both tanks turned off. Today, when messing with the Mopeka tank check monitors, while switching back and forth on the tanks, I smelled gas. Turns out, the tank that was empty has a leaking regulator. Not at the threads, but at the regulator for that tank, hissing big time. Gonna see if the dealer will let me remove it and they can replace it or I'll have to lug in the 5'er to them to replace. Brand new and it's a bad regulator.

If you do, soap bubble the fitting and video and or take a picture of it. They shouldn’t have a problem with you replacing it if you are competent. It would suck if they made you tow the 5er in for a 30 minute task.

I went through the same dance before I bought a LP sniffer off Amazon. Ended up having a slight leak on the main run down the frame. A slight slice allowing LP out. I found that with the soap water and did a splice. Then leaked out another time and after getting the sniffer found one of the pig tails has bad fittings and also the end going into the regulator. This was all on a 2017 model. I bought a New Regulator and braided pig tails and no more leaks.

I just bought the LP sniffer on Amazon, lol. Can't believe it's taken me that long to get one. The propane cost me $38 to fill the can that leaked out.

Had a similar problem early on with our regulator. Instead of the dealer replacing it with another made in China POS I bought a Marshall made in the USA regulator. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Marshall-Ex...2387b14ae786be

Bought a second one to have in the tool box.

Our tank to regulator hose started leaking about 9 months after we bought the TT. It was not Jayco's fault just faulty crimp on the hose that failed. I have replaced it. I have had many of those hoses fail over the years. I do not know why they are still legal to use. I am still thinking about going to make copper lines to replace the rubber hoses with.

We were camping for a weekend one time and the main propane regulator went bad on us. I got lucky and had one comparable to this on hand made it fit one tank and made it through the weekend. By what I have read this is for a single appliance only. It worked.

I did my homework and also installed a Marshall. MADE IN AMERICA!

Can you hook up two tanks to this regulator?
