I have not heard of any regulations here in NH. But I have not gone out and tested the waters yet. We can have a new valve put in the old tank have have the tank recertfied. The 72 Argosy we are looking at has Aluminum tanks. So if that goes through I'll be looking at getting them upgraded!

Federal regulations are the only ones that really apply.
If you have new valves installed the tanks have to be recertified. After that you should be good to go in all 50 states.
I do know an old guy out in the middle of the wild Upper Peninsula of Michigan that would fill your tank with the old valve on it up until last year when he finally had to get his supply of propane refilled for the first time in nearly four years! He is so remote that he sold very little propane.

You can remove the tanks from the reg but if you "break" the seal to the main line you have to get recertified again.

Not sure all the ins and outs of this reg - and have no idea who will be policing it - other than we have to sign a waiver that we have read and understand the new regulations (when ever we purchase a new regulator and/or "pigtails".

Any of this happening in the States?
Just another way that more laws are not meant to protect so much as they are to generate revenue for the government.
The ONLY law we have here in the states is that you need the new OPD valve and the tank has to be certified.
Thank God and Heaven above that we do not need an official seal tacked on to anything else!
I replaced my old Fisher regulator with a new one. I figured I could probably replace the diaphragm but it was only forty bucks to replace it with a whole new one.
It is amazing how some governments now regulate what is commonly considered common sense things like knowing that something old should be repaired or replaced.
This supports my theory that natural selection in humans is gone. Resulting in stupid people surviving and ultimately propogating!

Funny, my dad for years filled his own tanks from the suppy tank to the house. He was funny like that, goverm'nt not gonna tell 'im what he can and can't have! On the Argosy project the PO stripped off most of the Propane lines, I'll be looking for parts there from the supply line fitting to the tanks, including regulator........

During in depth inspection of my orginal LP system, I found wear/rub marks on the copper line in several locations, plus most of the shut off valves were corroded/rusted in the open postion. I purchased everything I needed to completely replumb the copper portion of the system at Lowe's IIRC the total cost was under $200 and I have a 31' so there are some long runs. The rubber hose between the regulator and the main copper line came from an LP supply house, the pigtails came from a camper salvage yard for $5 each (just happened to be in there and they were brand new still in the package in a salvage unit) My regulator has tested out okay, I may replace it anyway because the red flag is hard to see. Tanks have been recertified with OPD's installed. But I may upgrade to 40# tanks in the future....

The only places that needed any type of sealant were at the ends of the rubber hose between the regulator and the main line, and where the pigtails screw into the regulator, I used teflon tape in those places.
