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.

Yargh... Here I traded in one Keystone on another, and have almost the exact same problem. The tank opposite the regulator is full - but when I switch over to that tank, the indicator goes to red, as in - empty tank. It's not making the gawd awful noise this time (though it did briefly), but I've got no LP coming out of one tank. I bled some out to make sure it wasn't pressure. I'll try replacing the pig tail this weekend.
