As tank gauges

Hi all. I'm new to this, so I hope this isn't a dumb question;
Is there such a thing as a gauge that tells you how much propane you have left in your tanks? One that attaches to the tanks themselves?
We bought a new 2020 Basecamp X, (after seeing it, should have waited for the Basecamp X 20').
Thanks.

First of all, greetings and welcome to the forum.

Yes here is one method to determine how much propane is in your tank. Here is a link to the the website (https://mopeka.com/). I have this system and it works well.

Best wishes!

We have done the old trick of poor warm water over the tank and feel it. where it is cold is the level. Tryed and True. But the other thing sounds very interesting.

I use the Mopeka and it works well for me. I also got the halo rings for the bottom of the tanks to provide the clearance needed and to not have the aluminum spacers that come with the sensors beating up the tray the tanks sit on. The phone app works well, but the 2-pack sensor I bought also had the battery operated guage that I mounted inside and works well.

Do you see rapid discharge of the 2032 batteries on you Mopeka? Mine don't last a month. I've had Mopeka about two years. At first the 2032 batteries lasted several months. Now the new batteries need to be changed monthly or sooner? Do Mopeka's wear out? Do I need to buy new ones? That could get $$. I'd appreciate advice.

I use the Mopeka Tankcheck as well. Also have the halo rings. Works well for me. Once a year or so I have to replace the batteries. The app tells you when they are low. When you replace the batteries you have to resync the sensors. Not a big deal.

Newbie here. . .Looking at buying the Mopeka set-up. Went to their website (link below) which has the Mopeka (1) Check Standard LPG Sensor (which seems to be what everyone is using), and they also have the (2) Mopeka Pro Check Sensor-Aluminum (or Steel) LPG Cylinders. Has anyone used the second one or know what the difference is.

https://mopeka.com/shop/

They also have a wifi bridge for extra $$$. Has anyone had experience with that?

Thanks!
