valves for horizontal lp tanks?

I have 30# horizontal lp tanks on my '86 Argosy. I realize the horizontal valves don't have to be changed to OPD, but 1 leaks around the handle stem. I've tightened up the packing nut all I dare to and still have the leak. Does anyone know where I could find a replacement valve?
Thanks for any and all replies.

Your best bet would be to contact a local gas supplier that does service. Another option would be to contact the manufacturer of the tanks. You are right on the opd issue, and the owners that I have talked to love the lay down bottles.
