Bad Automatic Gas Regulator?
Something funny is happening with my gas regulator on my 2005 International. One LPG tank ran empty so I switched the change-over lever to the other tank, then unscrewed the hose from the closed empty tank.
I smelled propane and, sure enough, could feel propane escaping through the unconnected hose, even though the change-over lever was in the correct position. Closing the second tank solved the problem by halting the propane flow. Reconnecting the hose will of course stop the flow, but this is a pain as I want the LPG avaialble to the trailer while going out to re-fill the second tank.
Am I doing this right?
If there is a problem somewhere in the regulator, is this fixable (replacing seals or such), or am I probably looking at replacing the entire Automatic gas regulator? Eight year old trailer with moderate to heavy usage, perhaps this is just the normal lifecycle?
