I do also inMH. My 5th wheel 40 lb cylinders originally had the same, but the previous owner replaced them with ones without the level gauge, so the read out inside always reads 100%

Tighten it too much and valve becomes VERY difficult to turn

So where was leak?
The service valve was fully opened which I made sure it was closed before leaving. I did not smell propane inside the coach.

If you have a propane leak anywhere in the LP system when the service valve is open something needs to be FIXED.....(closing the shut off valve is NOT A FIX).

I agree with the previous poster. Our regulator was leaking propane into the basement of our fiver.

Thumbs up

After reading all the posts I noticed that I did put 8.3 GALLONS not lbs. in the tank. Sorry to mislead everyone. Plus the wall gauge not reading right.
Thanks to all

I did thanks.
BTW replacing a propane regulator is a relatively easy DIY job.
(At 15 years of age mine was gunked up with an oil like liquid).

I had Camping World do a leak check while it was in for maintenance. Good news is that no leaks were detected. Thanks for everyone's concern.
