LP gauge?

Well, there are 11 pages of LP forum threads, and I would bet that at least 1/2 of them would have the word gauge in them. So I am going to ask a question that I am positive is within the LP section! forgive me thread police. anyway, my tanks have the little plastic guages on them that nestle inside of some kind of fitting just to the side of the main opd valve. these valves also have the fittings to run wires into you inside indicators. So, here are the questions: 1) Are these things accurate enough to replace? Mine are full of condensation 2) I have not seen these in my casual looking around at RV stores, etc. Are they easy to find and purchase? thanks ol' Bill

My tanks are not equipped with the gauges, but I had noticed replacements at Vintage Trailer Supply while pricing a new set of bottles. The replacements are only $11.95 apiece.

The indicators are driven by a magnet in the float assembly that remains attached to the tank. You can get new visual-only indicators from VTS or any bulk propane dealer. The ones that also include a remote readout feature are less common but you can get them from VTS or any Airstream dealer.

I have the gauges and find them to be quite useful and accurate.
