This weekend I noticed a high pitched whine coming from the front of my fifth wheel when the furnace was running. The furnace is in the middle of the coach. Inspecting the propane bottles, I realized that the single regulator on the far side was vibrating slightly and the whine was coming from there - the switchover regulator on the door side of the coach seemed ok. Has anyone had a regulator go bad? When they go bad, do they whistle/hum/vibrate?

I also had some trouble with the switchover regulator (pointer indicates which tank is active and gives a green or red indicator if there is, or is not gas available). I think this is because the far side regulator was not properly distributing gas.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

I think my fix may have been an overreaction - I traded in the 5er on a newer one. There was of course alot more to it than just the noisy regulator - we wanted bigger bunks for the kids, an outdoor kitchen and a built in bike rack - but getting rid of the bad regulator was a nice bonus!

Stay away from RV Shows - they're dangerous!

A little over kill every once in a while is okay!

I was at an RV show a couple of weeks ago and noticed that Outdoor Kitchens (complete with big screen TVs) are becoming common. I love the idea.

Well done. Enjoy!
