Nick,

Thanks for the heads up. Now I am in a quandry:

Ours was not the only failure on the caravan. Out of 20 units, we had, as I remember it, some seven or eight failures. One member of the caravan had a failure at the rally in Michigan before the caravan left, and replaced it with a new unit. It failed on the way, and had to be replaced again. Mine was returned to Airstream who reinbursed the cost of the replacement as it was still under warrenty...
InlandRV sells the Fisher regulator that "Airstream used for years", but apparently not anymore. I may end up buying it, but $165 plus shipping is kind of high. Yes, I know not as "high as I could get blown up", but still...

Would anyone care to recommend a reliable regulator?

Thanks,
Tom

How many of us still run their original regulator?

I had my tested at the propane dealer and I check it for leaks once in a while, but it's still going strong.

I asked the dealer about whether I should replace it or not and he said I could, but it's a $200 regulator. Then he asked, 'what kind of trailer is it on?' When I told him an Airstream, he said 'Oh, that's why then' ;-)

I keep a bottle of commercial grade leak check and use it on the propane system often. The regulator does not need to be replaced on a time basis, if it's broke fix, if not leave it alone. The old Fishers are far better than what is available to day.

Even tho I deemed it time to replace my regulator when I installed the new tanks and connecting hoses..I kept that 'ole Fisher' just in case.
