  • Difference Between JR Products Automatic Changeover Propane Regulators & Camco Propane Regulator
  • The difference between the prices of the JR Products Automatic Changeover LP Gas Regulators and Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulators are in the BTU per hour, which as you correctly noted, is important information. The JR Products Automatic Changeover RV LP Gas Regulator # 37207-30395 is rated for 345,000 BTU per hour for the Service Cylinder and 260,000 BTU per hour for the reserve cylinder. The JR Products Compact Low Pressure 2-Stage Automatic Changeover RV LP Gas...

  • Hoses and Regulators Needed to Add Dual Tank Propane Setup to Trailer
  • I attached a picture that shows what the typical dual tank setup looks like with the accessories needed labeled. First thing you need is pig tails to go from the tanks to the regulator like the part # 100473-12. Then for a dual tank regulator with automatic changeover we have the part # 37207-30395 that each of the pigtails would connect to. Then for a 12 foot long extension hose that would plug into outlet of the regulator you'd want the part # 100040-144-MBS. From there you'd connect...

  • Dual Propane Regulator Replacement for Older Trailer
  • It looks like what you have there are dual propane tanks, so a dual propane regulator will be needed. The age of the trailer doesn't matter so long as the fittings on the tanks are current. So what you need is the Compact Low Pressure 2-Stage Automatic Changeover RV LP Gas Regulator # 37207-31525. For hoses you can use the 12 inch MB Sturgis Propane Hose Assembly - RV Type 1 w/ Back Check x 1/4" MPT # 100473-12. To mount this regulator if needed, you can use the U-Post RV LP Gas Regulator...

  • Replacement 2-Stage Regulator for Marshall Model 260
  • Camco part # CAM59333 will work as a replacement for your Marshall 260 Horizontal LP regulator. It includes a P.O.L. connector. If you do not need the P.O.L. connector then you can use the Camco Horizontal 2-Stage Propane Regulator # CAM59323. Your photo shows your regulator to be a horizontal type but you can confirm by verifying the the Marshall's vent opening faces down. Please refer to the linked video at the 20-second mark to see the vent on the Camco part.

  • Parts Needed to Connect Auxiliary 20 lb Propane Tank to Dual Onboard Camper Tanks
  • I appreciate all the information! The part I recommend using is the MB Sturgis Sturgi-Stay T-Fitting w Hose - Type 1 Valve - Quick Disconnect, Disposable Cylinder Ports # 103615. The Sturgi-Stay T-Fitting will connect in-line between one of your onboard tanks and the regulator, via its pigtail hose, as shown in the attached diagram. The red (Type 1) fitting on #103615 connects to the tank valve and the pigtail from that tank connects to the brass side of the T-fitting. The included...

  • Changeover/Regulator and Pigtail Harness or RV with Two 100 lb Propane Tanks
  • What you are looking for is a dual stage propane regulator with an automatic changeover like the JR Products Compact Low Pressure 2-Stage Automatic Changeover # 37207-31525. This connects to both of your tanks and automatically switches between them so that you can use both tanks without having to manually switch between them. For a 15 inch pigtail to connect from each tank to the regulator then we have the steel braided part # 100833-15 which will work great.

  • Parts Needed to Connect Manchester 10 lb Propane Tank to 4 Propane Cookers on Food Trailer
  • From what I can tell it looks like you need the adapter # 204037-MBS, regulator # 108221, and hose # 100383-48-MBS for your propane setup. I'm not sure what the POL to QCC1 converter is that you mentioned but these parts get you from the POL connector on your Manchester 100 lb propane tank to the 1/2" flared fitting that I believe your picture shows goes to your 4 propane cookers. If you have something else please let me know. I have attached a photo showing how these parts are typically...

  • Is JR Products 2-Stage Automatic Changeover Regulator a Good Replacement for Fairview GR-9984
  • A lot of propane regulators carry similar specs and are pretty comparable when it comes to quality. JR Products does a great job at pairing up good quality with a cost-effective product like the Compact Low Pressure 2-Stage Automatic Changeover RV LP Gas Regulator # 37207-31525. I reached out to my contact at JR Products who let me know that this regulator is rated for 262,500 Btu so it is on par with the Fairview regulator GR-9984 that you're looking at.

  • Replacement for Marshall Model 260 Propane Regulator
  • I have exactly what you need. There is nothing special about the Marshall Model 260 Propane Regulator so you can use pretty much any dual stage regulator. I recommend either the MB Sturgis Vertical 2-Stage Propane Regulator Part # 108220 or the Camco Vertical 2-Stage Propane Regulator Part # CAM59313. They will both work as an exact replacement for you, there isn't any need to replace it with another Marshall.

  • Connecting a Nexgrill Propane Grill to a Trailer's Built in Quick Disconnect
  • The quick disconnect outlet on your Rockwood is already regulated so you need new hose that doesn't have a regulator on it. The hose needs a quick disconnect on one end of course and a 3/8 female flare on the other. We carry two hoses with these connections: 60 inch part # 100304-60-MBS 120 inch part # 100304-120-MBS You didn't say how long it needs to be but they'll both do the job.

  • Low Pressure 2-Stage Automatic Changeover Dual Tank Propane Regulator
  • For a low pressure automatic changeover regulator the best option is the Compact Low Pressure 2-Stage Automatic Changeover RV LP Gas Regulator # 37207-31525. This uses the standard 1/4" FIF inlet x 3/8" FPT outlet, and to mount it I do recommend the U-Post RV LP Gas Regulator Bracket # 37207-30405. I have added links to video reviews of both parts for you to check out as well.

  • Difference Between 3 JR Products Propane Regulators
  • Those three regulators are all very similar and essentially do the same thing but they're used on different propane setups. Part # 37207-30365 is a vertical regulator. Vertical regulators are commonly on propane systems on travel trailers or pop up trailers Part # 37207-30375 is a horizontal regulator that also has POL fitting inserted into it. Horizontal regulators are usually what you see on motorhome systems. The tanks on motorhomes, called ASME tanks, also use a POL connection...

  • Parts Needed to Connect 100 Lb Tank with POL to On-board 5th Wheel Regulator Pigtail
  • You could technically use the Propane Adapter Fitting # 204128-MBS to convert the POL fitting on your 100 lb tank to a Type 1 or ACME fitting, which will allow you to connect the 15 foot Valve Extension Hose # 100914-180-MBS. This would then allow you to connect the male end (with the threads on the outside) of the extension to the green female end of your existing 12 inch pigtail, attached to your regulator. Using two pigtails is not ideal, but if you need the 15 foot extension plus the...

  • Propane Hose to Connect Trailer's Propane System to Regulator

  • Propane System Components on 5th Wheel or Travel Trailer
  • I believe I understand what you are stating but the issue you are finding is in the location of the regulator and not with the components. The 11 inch water column is what is standard on any 5th wheel, travel trailer, or motorhome after the regulator whether it is a single stage like # CAM59013 or a 2-stage regulator like # CAM59313. This is a low pressure system at any point after that regulator, so if you were to put a regulator in-line prior to the crossover, it would give you an inaccurate...

  • Recommended Longer Propane Pigtail for Cargo Area with Limited Clearance
  • Thank you for the picture! It looks like a longer pigtail hose is going to allow you to turn the cylinder enough to connect to your regulator, so I recommend using something like the MB Sturgis # 100833-24, which is 24" long. I've also linked our entire selection of pigtail hoses that have 1/4" male inverted flares and Type 1 connectors. Using a longer pigtail like this should allow you to connect your Camco Propane Cylinder Gas Gauge and Leak Detector # CAM59023 to the regulator and allow...

  • Tee Fitting Needed to Connect Auxiliary 20 lb Tank to Propane System
  • What you need is a T-Fitting and auxiliary hose like what comes in the Kit # 103538-MBS, but your propane setup is a bit different than a normal RV so you'll need to get creative in how you're able to connect the T-Fitting. One end is a male POL connection, which will connect to your valve, while the other end has a female POL fitting. Then you have the 2 quick-disconnects and a hose that allows you to connect your 20 lb auxiliary tank. You can definitely use the T-Fitting # 103602-MBS...

  • Availability of 15 inch Long Propane Tank Pig Tails

We have 15 inch pig tails like part # 100473-15-MBS or even 2 foot long sections like part # 100473-24-MBS.

  • For your 20 lb tanks you want to use the kit # 37220BL instead of part # 37230BL that you referenced. The only difference between these kits is the length of the threaded rod that the hold down bar and wingnut attached to. The shorter one is used for 20 lb tanks while the larger is for 30 lb tanks. If you want the option to swap between tank sizes then you can get the 30 lb kit # 37230BL and then also get the shorter threaded rod # 37207-30515. You can see this demonstrated in the...

  • Pigtails Needed to Connect Dual Propane Tanks to Regulator on Travel Trailer

The first will have the Type 1 connector (with the green cap) and the other has a 1/4" MPT fitting like what we find on the pigtail # 100473-12. I believe this is what you currently have but I think the end you're seeing looks like the MB Sturgis Propane Adapter Fitting # 204120-MBS and I think the white plastic piece is part of the back-check. The other type of pigtail that we see has the same Type 1 connector,...

The Coleman on the other hand is more difficult than that since the regulator can't be removed and, as you know, you can't run the gas through two regulators. The only thing we have that'll do it is adding a Tee right at your tanks using part # 103613-MBS and then using the same 10...

  • Propane Regulator Recommendation for 2000 Coleman Bayside Elite Pop Up

  • Hooking a Propane Grill to a 2019 Tiffin 37BA Motorhome
  • Normally the Tee goes between the tank and the regulator. You would use the hose you looked at, part # 100476-120-MBS, and a Tee that has a quick disconnect fitting like part # 103537-MBS. This would connect to an appliance that normally connects to a 1 pound disposable tank. Such appliances normally have their own regulator and you'd be all set. If your grill doesn't have its own regulator then this setup isn't going to work for you.

Once you know the size of each fitting it shouldn't be difficult to find a hose. It looks to me likes it's probably a 3/8 inch for both of them which means you can use part # 100040-48-MBS for a 4 foot, part # 100040-72-MBS for a 6 foot, or part # 100040-144-MBS for a 12 foot.

  • Will Portable Gas Grill That Uses Disposable Cylinder Get Enough Pressure from RV Propane Supply
  • Portable propane grills like Faulkner # FR51323 that has a built-in regulator will function from a small disposable cylinder, a portable tank or from your RV's propane supply. Since the output pressure from a disposable cylinder is lower than that from either a portable/refillable tank or an RV propane supply the grill with regulator will work fine with the RV connection.

  • The MB Sturgis 2-Stage Propane Regulator part # 108221 for horizontal mount or part # 108220 for vertical mount is what I recommend for a 100 lb tank. It does not matter which you choose so long as you have the vent pointed downward. These regulators will work just fine with both propane and lp gas. In order to connect either regulator you can use the MB Sturgis POL Propane Tank Connector Fitting part # 204051-MBS or the MB Sturgis Hose Assembly part # 100202.

  • Replacement Propane Hose Pigtail for Connecting Regulator and Propane Tank on Camper
  • I looked up the hose and the regulator you currently have, and found that the GHA7 hose uses an ACME Nut connector to the LP tank and a 1/4 inch male inverted flare that connects to the 3/8 to 1/4 adapter used on the regulator. We offer the necessary pigtails in many lengths for rubber hose, you can use # 37207-30755 for a 2 foot length, # 37207-30775 for a 3 foot length or # CAM59183 for a 4 foot length. If you'd prefer braided steel hose for durability, use part # 100833-24 for a...

  • Can Single Stage Regulator Be Used for Both 20 Pound and 100 Pound Propane Tank
  • A single stage regulator like the MB Sturgis # 108072 you referenced will indeed work on either a 20 pound or 100 pound propane tank. It's important to note though that the regulator type is really dependent on the propane-powered appliance you're using and not necessarily the tank itself. A dual-stage regulator like # 108221 will provide a more constant/consistent pressure for your appliance.

  • Replacement Propane Pigtails for Lance Camper Regulator
  • The MB Sturgis Propane Pigtail - Type 1 x 1/4" Male Inverted Flare - 1' # 100575-12-MBS is the standard pigtail for your Lance Camper. It will connect to your propane tank and then to your regulator. I recommend the Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator for Dual Propane Tanks # CAM59005 to connect your two pigtails. This features a gauge indicator to warn you that the tank pressure is decreasing and you will need to refill your propane tanks so you don't run out. These...

  • Can Camco # CAM59213 Adapter Connect My Grill to Propane Tree?
  • Yes, you can use a Camco # CAM59213 adapter to connect any item with a TYPE-1 connector like your grill if your grill hose is long enough to reach. I have attached a photo illustrating this. If your hose is not long enough you will need to add a MB Sturgis # 100914-120-MBS ten foot propane hose extension. Propane trees are a distribution system designed to be attached to standard 20 or 30 pound tanks. The system will feature one TYPE-1 connector at the bottom to attach to your portable...

  • Pigtail Hose for Use with Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator CAM59005
  • In general it is best to use the shortest suitable length of hose for just about any propane application since a shorter hose means less potential for pressure loss. To connect two tanks to the Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator # CAM59005 you could use a pigtail as short as the 15-inch MB Sturgis # 100833-15 or the 3-foot # 100833-36, both shown on the linked page. You might care to check out the two linked articles on propane fittings and system operation.

  • Will 2-Stage Automatic Changeover Propane Regulator Emit Propane Smell
  • I'm glad you asked, because there should not be an odor of propane coming from anywhere, including the vent, of your automatic changeover propane regulator. You are correct that a regulator should absolutely last longer than just a couple years (most are meant to be replaced approximately 15 years) but on occasion they do go bad, which is what happened with yours and why it is emitting the odor of gas. So you will definitely want to replace yours with the Compact Low Pressure 2-Stage...

If you've got a 100-lb ASME tank it's likely that you've got a POL fitting so you'll want to use the # 37207-30665 to connect your ASME tank to the regulator on your RV and propane line.

It uses a standard 10 water column propane pressure rating so the regulator part # 108220 that you referenced is a good start since that is what this is designed for as well. You'll need a pigtail from the tank to the regulator like with the part # 100473-12 which is 12 inches long and then a hose to go from the regulator to the dryer.
