Where to buy new regulator?

I'm looking to buy a replacement for the dual tank regulator that I have now on my 1979 31' International. Would prefer a replacement that would "bolt on" to existing system and one that has auto tank switch over.

Most of the RV supplies offer one. Here's a little better one that is more like the old Fisher that used to come on the Airstream.

propaneproducts.com: Rego - Twin Stage Automatic Change-over Regulator (7525B23)

Fisher
R966 Series Automatic Changeover Regulators
The R966 Series is a Underwriters Laboratories listed regulator widely used on motor homes, recreational vehicles and domestic installations because they maintain reliable, uninterrupted service. Available with a variety of pigtails and mounting brackets, the R966 has a built-in indicator to display when the changeover is made. Remote visual indication is available for all R966s by using Type 803. Gas is withdrawn from the supply cylinder until pressure is reduced to approximately 6 psig (0,41 bar). A spring then forces the cam downward, opening the other First-Stage inlet fitting and allowing gas to enter the R966 from the reserve cylinder. When the changeover (from supply to reserve cylinder) is made, the cam activates a red warning flag in the built-in indicator window to show that the original supply cylinder is empty. The arrow on the changeover knob can then be moved so that it points to the new supply cylinder. The empty cylinder can now be refilled, becoming the reserve cylinder.
All R966s have the 3/4" FNPT drip-lip vent, making additional protection of the vent unnecessary except on mobile applications where road splatter could block the vent. High capacity internal relief construction keeps appliance pressure at 2 psig (0,14 bar) or below. An extension on the closing cap acts as a travel stop to open the internal relief valve under emergency conditions.

Here is a link to my investigation and subsequent replacement of the Propane Regulator on my '85 Sovereign last year:

Good Luck!

Here ore some views of a replacement changeover regulator I found (see earlier post above). What I like is that you can orient the changeover to be viewed from inside the trailer like the one that came with it. (Fisher 966-no longer made). It has a nice big red flag. You could paint it silver.

My propane regulator had a small leak in the diaphram seal. I replaced it with a modern looking after market regulator. It took a little time mounting it where the old one was. Everything is back in working order.
