Camco Dual Propane Tank Regulator - Flip the Lever to the Reserve Tank

I put this onto a 2021 Jayco HT Eagle 5th wheel, to replace the OEM unit that was recalled. I bought this instead of getting a replacement through the recall because this replacement unit has a low gas indicator and auto-switching between two propane tanks -- in my mind, basic functionality.




by:

Easy Install (drilled new holes in the backing plate) and it works like a charm.
We kept smelling faint propane odors and we were going through gas too fast. We replaced all hoses and re-certified the tanks, but still smelled a faint propane odor. So, we replaced the regulator. Because the old one was still fire-ing up the stove and furnace, we did not realize that when regulators wear out, they can leak gas. Such an inexpensive fix that we plan to get another to keep on hand.
We have purchased from etrailer in the past and will continue to do so.
Note: regulator is not touching the tanks (pictures are a bit deceptive) but it sits a few inches in front of the tanks.




by:

This is the second of these Auto Changeover Regulators I have bought from etrailer. The first one went on my previous travel trailer and liked it so well, I bought one for my present unit. This newest travel trailer only had one tank. We boondock camp a lot, so one wasn't enough. These regulators come with the outlets straight out the sides, so I put L-fittings on the clean things up a bit. I love buying from etrailer, because they always ship fast and carry very good products. I've bought quite a few items over the years from etrailer, and they have never disappointed me yet,




by:

this regulator is not a direct replacement of the model 6020 Winntec regulator . I had to drill holes in the existing mounting bracket and the tapped holes had to be re-tapped to use existing screws. additionally I had to order different hoses for the tanks as the connection was different.


Comments
This regulator is designed to be an universal regulator that is used with a variety of trailers. You are correct in that it uses a pigtail like part # 100575-15-MBS
MB Sturgis Propane Pigtail w/ Back Check - Type 1 x 1/4" Male Inverted Flare - 1-1/4'
$16.40
that has an inverted male flare. The mounting holes on this regulator are spaced 3 inches apart on center left to right and approximately seven eights inches on center front to back.

The regulator is a perfectly matched replacement, quality of product appears to be well made. Installation according with instructions simple to understand. Performance is satisfactory to original equipment. Delivered received a day ahead of scheduled. Order filled promptly. Thank you,.




by:

Works perfect! Quick delivery. Thanks again etrailer.


Comments
I lived in the camper for 6 months after I purchased this product, so it was in continuous use for a while. Worked great, was still working when we parked the camper in April.
Anthony R - 11/18/2018


by:

Very high quality as usual with etrailer products.




by:

I always appreciate the quick product delivery and followup from etrailer. I was disappointed this time, however, with the product. There were only two machine screws provided to attach the regulator to the bracket when there should have been four; the package containing the screws had been opened prior to being placed into the regulator package. Also, in my opinion, the supplier or manufacturer should have included a new mounting bracket for the new regulator rather than providing a very generic template and requiring the purchaser to adapt the regulator to an old bracket, not very efficient. I believe the regulator is good quality, but the attachment hardware could have easily been included for a better overall product.


Comments
The regulator seems to be working as expected. I never received any response from etrailer or the manufacturer to my comments regarding the attachment hardware I havent changed my opinion about that. It is a manufacturer issue, not etrailer.

I purchased a Camco 59005 propane regulator for a used travel trailer we recently purchased. I chose this item to complete an order for free shipping. I have had good service from Camco products. I was replacing a valve that was 11 years old (still working well), along with the aged rubber propane hoses. I have experienced that it is much easier and safer update rv equipment at home than in a campground while I am on vacation. Propane hoses get brittle and valves deteriorate, so I always replace anything questionable. I expect this Camco valve to give me years of good service. etrailer has treated me right on anything I have purchased from them!


Comments
Changeover valve has worked well and as expected over the last year. We used the trailer about 6 weeks this year.
Rick - 12/29/2018


by:

Works as advertised, however, makes a loud humming noise.


Comments
You mentioned that it makes a loud humming noise and I decided to reach out to the manufacturer. They advised that the internal pressure valve is vibrating and there is not a fix for it. It is recommended to replace it and I am sending out the warranty return instructions for you.

Replaced non-changeover regulator with this item. Worked great on my last travel trailer, expect nothing less on this one. Absolutely necessary to keep from guessing when you are out of propane. First became familiar with the auto-changeover feature on a 2002 fifth wheel, now I have one on my 24 ft travel trailer.


Comments
Installed this after depleting both tanks of gas on a trip. The changeover works great!

worked well




by:

Learned a great deal from your video about dual regulators.




by:

Product has performed okay. Only issue I have is the color of the flag indicating the tanks have shifted is almost impossible to see without a flashlight.


Comments
Lasted about nine months then failed. Will no longer shift automatically. I replaced it with another brand because this is the second Camco regulator I have had to replace prematurely.
Bill M - 08/28/2018


by:

New regulator and hoses on my 20 year old camper. When you smell propane and everything is tight it is a no-brainer. Appears to be very good quality and half the price of the regulator at a local RV dealer.


Comments
One year follow-up, no problems, propane is working fine on my 2000 model camper.
Steven D - 06/22/2021


by:

The product is fine but I didn't realize that I needed special adapter pieces to make the item connect to the propane and bbq. . I spent a while at Loews trying to find the adapter fittings. They had no clue but the sales help just didnt know . I will seek out a plumber. I am not super smart about plumbing fixtures so this may not be a problem for others but I wish it were clearer with the product packaging what adapters were needed to connect this to propane and the the grill.




by:

Purchased and received the regulator in the usual prompt etrailer way. Within two months the regulator failed shutting gas off to trailer leaving us without heat or gas for cooking. A call to etrailer customer service resulted in having to make a call to Camco support directly. Camco sent a replacement regulator within a week.

The replacement was installed and has been working troublefree since.




by:

So far so good. Great replacement to the one that failed. It's used in a remote cabin propane system similar to an RV setup.
Also very fast service.


Comments
Still working perfectly.
Kevin H - 06/11/2020

Bought this to replace original regulator. Seems a little cheaper made and more light duty than my original, but EVERY regulator that I found by searching GR 9984 was shaped like this one so I bought from etrailer. Installed today and everything looks good. The bracket that Was on my original regulator bolted right on this regulator. I believe this is as close to my original as can be bought. Haven’t fired up all my appliances yet, but I think it will be great. If you’ve never had the auto changeover for your dual tanks before, you should buy this and give it a try.


Comments
Still holding up. No problems. Thanks
Jamey M - 10/18/2018


by:

Very satisfied with the product. Easy installation. Like the feature of the part that shows you if the tank is empty and will switch to the other tank.. Delivery time was right on. Will order from them again.


Comments
I am very happy with the Camco Propane regulator. It work as stated, no problems. Would buy another one if needed.. Deliverery was fantastic..

I call to get a high demand RV part and the sales person was able to get it for me right away to my surprise! The delivery was quick too. This will enable me to continue to use my RV early next year without canceling any of our plans. Great job!




by:

This product did not meet my needs for a higher volume of propane coupled with the larger tanks. I am switching it out for a hi capacity regulator.




by:

Just installed. Haven't used yet. Seems well built. Only came with two screws, has four mounting holes. Gas window could be bigger.




by:

Received the product in good condition product looks great! I like the timely delivery. I haven't installed it yet

Great product and great communication with company !!! Can’t beat it .. Thank you !!

  • Would the Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator # CAM59005 fit 100 lb Propane Tanks
    If the two 100 lb tanks you have use 1/4 SAE inverted flare connectors and are rated for 160,000 BTU the Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator for Dual Propane Tanks # CAM59005 would work well for you. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out as well.

  • Automatic Changeover Propane Regulator Recommendation for a 44,000 BTU/hr Gas Stove
    The Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator # CAM59005 will best fit your needs. It has a 210,000 BTU/hr rating for the Service Cylinder and a 130,000 BTU/hr rating for the Reserve Cylinder, as well as a nominal outlet pressure of 11" WC. This regulator has the standard 1/4" SAE inverted flare inlets and 3/8" NPT female outlet so it should match right up with what you have. Attached is a review video for you to reference.

  • Should Two Propane Tanks Feed RV Accessories at One Time
    Since propane appliances like heaters require low pressure propane there's not really an advantage to having both tanks feed appliances at the same time. Best option is an automatic changeover like the part # CAM59005 which will use one tank until it is empty and then switch over to the other. The pressure is reduced so much for LP that there really isn't a reason to ever need two tanks to feed one line.

  • Can Automatic Changeover Regulator be Used to Draw from Both Propane Tanks
    Automatic changeover regulators, like the Camco Automatic Changeover # CAM59005, are design to switch over completely and don't have a way to allow you to draw from both tanks automatically. The beauty of this feature is that you can remove the tank that isn't currently being used so that you can replace it with a full tank.

  • How Quickly Does Camco Automatic Changeover Regulator Switch to Different Tank
    I reached out to our propane tech contact and was told that for automatic changeover regulators such as the Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator for Dual Propane Tanks # CAM59005 there is no actual time in regards to switching over. It was explained that the auxiliary tank will take over and start supplying gas once the primary tank is empty enough that the pressure falls to less than the auxiliary tank. So the changeover happens based on pressure differentiation, if that...

  • How Do You Know If An RV Propane Regulator Is Bad
    The best way to test a propane regulator is by the process of elimination. The reason for this is that there is not really any easy way to test the regulator yourself without certain tools such as a manometer. Therefore, it will be much more convenient to simply rule out other causes such as a bad appliance or faulty hose. Since the hose is still good as you said, odds are the regulator is bad as this is generally one of the more common fail points in a propane system. For replacement,...

  • How To Hook-Up Two 40 Lb Propane Tanks To a Concession Trailer
    The propane regulator I recommend for two 40 lb propane tanks is the Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator part # CAM59005 which would switch between tanks when one is empty but only one would be on at any given time. The Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator is rated at 11" W.C. for up to 210,000 Btus so it will work well for your needs.

  • Fairview RV Camper LP Propane 2 Stage Automatic Changeover Regulator
    While we don't carry that particular brand I was able to find some information for you. It is typical for the indicator to be red either when the tank is empty or is shut off. It will be green when the tank is full and open. It likely is taking a few hours as you said for the residual pressure in the system to dissipate which would cause it to go red. It sounds like it is doing it's job properly. Should you need a replacement we offer is the Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator...

  • Does Installing Camco Changeover part # CAM59005 Require Using Adapters
    The supply hose that attach to tanks with an ACME nut that go from your propane tanks to the regulator like the Camco Changeover part # CAM59005 should match what this has. The size of the fittings and lines for this type of application are standard in size so you wouldn't need any additional adapters.

  • Does Regulator for Dual Propane Tanks Work With a Single Tank
    Yes, the Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator for Dual Propane Tanks # CAM59005 can be used with a single propane tank if you like. It is designed to automatically change over to the second tank when one is empty so what will happen is it simply won't change over and will always pull from the one tank.

  • Can RV Propane Source be Regulated Twice and Still Function
    If you try to use two regulators you will most likely have too low of pressure you run your propane accessories. We had a customer come back who tried to use a RV gas grill that was regulated from a propane source that was already regulated and the pressure was too low for the grill to work properly. I attached a link to a help article on RV propane systems for you to check out as well.

  • Could Camco Propane Regulator CAM59005 Work Well in House Water Heater, Stove and Heater
    Depends on the propane requirements of your accessories. If the water heater, stove, and heater all require LP which is rated at 11 inch water column then yes the regulator part # CAM59005 would work well. Most house appliances are rated for LP like what this is designed for so this regulator should work well.

    The Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator for Dual Propane Tanks # CAM59005 can be used with both a 30 lb and 20 lb propane tank without issue because it only draws from one tank at a time so there are no issues there. In regards to using this regulator on a line that already has a regulator, that is not recommended. The reason being that the use of two regulators will result in the pressure being too low so you will only want to use one regulator. I have added a link to...

When you switched the gas gauge after the automatic changeover did it go to green? If it did not that would mean the regulator has an internal issue and needs to be replaced. If you got it less than a year ago, the regulator does have a 1-year warranty and can be replaced that way; otherwise you would need to purchase a new one. I've added a link to a video...
