What sort of gauge do you use. Do you put a gauge on both tanks?

My rig came from the factory with gauges on both 30 lb tanks. Readable gauge on the tank and a remote read on the panel inside. I guess they don't put them on any more...

Ditto, I think it is still standard on Classic....not sure about the rest.

Here is the recall.

NHTSA Campaign ID: 15V761000
Manufacturer: Airstream, Inc.
Model Year: 2016
Recall Date: 11/17/2015
Potential # of Units Affected: 904
Summary: Airstream, Inc. (Airstream) is recalling certain model year 2016 Classic, Flying Cloud, International, Sport, Eddie Bauer, and Land Yacht recreational trailers manufactured August 3, 2015, to November 13, 2015, and equipped with Auto Changeover Propane Gas Regulators. Propane gas may leak into the plastic gas level indicator window of the regulator causing it to degrade and crack.
Consequence: If the indicator window cracks, propane gas may leak out, increasing the risk of a fire.
Remedy: Airstream will notify owners, and dealers will replace the propane regulator and the required hoses, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Airstream customer service at 1-937-596-6111 extension 7401 or 7411.

interesting!!.. also a good way to check for leaks in the system. If everything is off then the indicator should stay green for a long time. If you turn tanks off and everything is off and indicator goes to red real quick that could mean a leak some where in the system. maybe?

I know some regulators bleed a tiny bit of gas all the time to prevent bellows lock so how long would it take to go red.. I shall see next time at unit.

Maiden Voyage with 2015 23' FC FB Propane Regulator Problem

The red indicator works for me about 25% of the time. Will be getting it replaced when I get home. Don't trust the indicator.
We had the identical problem in northern New Mexico at 30 degrees in late April 2016. AS warranty won't replace until their approved tech checks it out. Closest AS tech is hundreds of miles away. Looks as if I'll need to replace it on my own and fight them for the $$ under the warranty agreement.
