Rego LP Regulator?

My '67 Overlander has a Rego 7519D, two stage LP regulator made by the Bastian-Blessing Company. It appears to be a rebuildable unit. A forum search on "Rego" turned up no results, so between this, and the fact that InlandRV sells the Fisher 966 that "Airstream has used for years", I assume this must be a replacement unit. Now it appears that I need to replace the Rego.

Anyone else have a Rego? Anyone heard of Rego?

Also, I have the original copper, high pressure lines from the tank to the regulator. They strike me as better than neoprene lines from a long-life (sitting in the sun) perspective. Has anyone else gone out of their way to keep copper high pressure lines?

Thanks,
Tom

Tom,
I read your thread and went out and looked...we have the same REGO on our '68 Overlander...we purchased the trailer about 6 weeks ago, and had trouble getting the fridge to stay lit until I switched tanks...so far no problems, but the regulator casing does look a bit chewed where it mates in the middle...so far no leaks...we are at 9,318 ft altitude, so the pressure is probably significantly higher, if STP laws apply to LPG(propane). I will ask the nearby RV dealer, and reply this thread if he has anything enlightening to pass on..........mike

I contacted Rego via email last week inquiring about a rebuild kit for the 7519D. They replied:

Thank you for the e-mail. Model 7519D is obsolete, there are no repair parts available. The current replacement is 7525B4, which is available from a propane dealer or RV supply.
Regards,
RegO Technical Services
Tom

I too have the 7519 D and have problems with a small leak from the top area somewhere around the flip lever or glass window- otherwise it's still working fine!? (I DOE KNOW LUCY- DE CAMPGROUND JUST "SPLODED!!)
I just emailed a vendor on Ebay who may have the 7525 B4 replacements. I'll post a reply when I get one

O.K. -Here's the scoop.
He can get us the 7527 for $81 + $8 shipping, OR a Fisher mb 254-00 (auto changeover) for $45 +. Sounds like a real deal to me , seeing as though I believe this is the one Andy sells for $165.
Pigtails are $9.50/ea.
Anybody who wants one , PM me

I know that this is an old thread but I was wondering if anyone has found a good replacement for the Rego 7519. Mine is mounted on the Tank hold down and the little 40 dollar ones aint big enough. Any suggestions?

Vintage Trailer supply has this. It's what I had on my 67.

There are a variety of automatic changeover regulators on the market. Here is the link to my "regulator story":

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f287...tor-23016.html

Since I installed that one, I have learned that there is a combination bottle hold down and regulator bracket available that is made out of aluminum. It can be purchased at the Airtstream Store in Jackson Center and perhaps at some of the larger Airstream dealers, but it will be more expensive than the stamped steel bracket I used. The stamped steel bracket is actually original equipment on recent Airstreams, so there is no shame in using it as I did.
