In my fifteen years as service manager, We replaced very few regulators. I have been a RV owner since 1968 and I have had one failure. Almost all the regulators that failed and I took apart, had a broken plastic lever that caused the problem. Don't you just love plastic? (SAC.) Personally, I would not replace one unless it failed. This is just not a high failure rate piece.

The reason I mentioned butane in my first post is that we had a couple unscrupulous dealers in our area a few years ago. They were filling their tankers with “propane” that didn’t meet the standard. There were a number of homeowners that had furnace failures during cold weather. When the analysis came back there was a substantial amount of butane in the gas.
