Question Ordering tanks - remote read gauge?

We're ordering new Worthington aluminum tanks from for our 1970 Overlander. Do we want to order ones with the "remote read gauge"? Can that be hooked up to our control panel in the 1970 Overlander? Many thanks in advance.

The 70s model did not have the capability to monitor the LP tanks. IF you were to add a gauge you could, but if it were me I would save the $$.

For the moment RV Surplus has what appears to be the right sender for those tanks, their SKU g12845, for $24 plus shipping (and these guys are a little high on their shipping charges). The snap-on gauge they carry was the right one for my recent-model Manchester tank.

My 2-cents' worth: if you think you'll add a monitor later, go ahead and get the tank with sender installed. I looked around a lot before finding mine at this site. Manchester Tank told me to go to my local propane suppliers, and the locals basically told me to go fish! (Note that the remote sender has a gauge face with pointer that you can read at the tank.)

I don't know what the bottles have for a sender but the mounted horizontal tanks I got have a 0-90 ohm which is a standard GM fuel sender. That should make getting a gauge real easy.
