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!

Ours doesn't have the TV, but we put a TV in the passthrough and watch movies by the campfire, so a TV in the outdoor kitchen would just be silly (Yes, I'm trying for irony here). I am chomping at the bit to get out there, but nothing's open in NJ until March 30th, and alot don't open until April 15th!

I'm hoping we get some use out of the outdoor kitchen - of course now there's even more LP connections to worry about!
