Take it to any of the national propane dealers (Amerigas, Suburban, Ferrell, etc) that are in your area. They should be able to come up with a match

I've seen industrial propane tanks with a dual port set-up like that, but they are usually horizontally mounted, e.g. on fork lifts. Is there a tank manufacturer name embossed on the side of the collar around the valves?

I see that Worthington Cylinders make a vertical tank with that sort of multi-port top. It's listed as a forklift industrial tank.

Those aluminum tanks are indeed pricey. Ought to be a less expensive steel one with the same dual port option.

With TWO tanks, and a dual tank regulator, a gauge is nothing more than redundancy.

Thank you all for your advice, except Ed-Sommers.

Ed,
How do you know how many tanks I have? Maybe I like redundency!
I didn't ask for an opinon. If you can't help me find the tank I'm looking for, then don't reply. Everone else gave me a direction to look to find
a tank. You just want to hear yourself talk!

Thank you.

I'm sure Ed meant no offense.

But I for one like the idea of LP gauges. I guess some of us just like lots of status info. For example, I've always preferred an oil pressure gauge in my car to "Idiot Lights". While I suppose I could just stick my head out the door, I like having an indoor-outdoor thermometer (with high and low recording) in my RV.

I noticed that the "SeeLevel" RV tank gauge has LP level feature which needs 90 ohm senders in the tanks. I didn't realize they made such tanks.

Even with two 30 lb tanks I can imagine situations where an LP gauge would be quite nice, especially if there's the possibility of being caught in really cold weather (skiing perhaps). If facing a really cold night weekend, I'd like to know whether I have a total of 55 lbs or just 31 lbs.

Wow! Way for someone to act on their first post on a forum. Have you ever used the internet before? You must not have very many friends. Good luck getting any info if you're keep that crap up.

I have to side with the OP on this one. Ed-Sommers' rtesponse made unfounded assumptions, was inaccurate, a bit snarky, and didn't address the OPs request. All the OP asked for was if anyone knew where he could get a tank like the one pictured. We don't know how many tanks he had or even if the duplicate tank was going to go on the same RV it came from originally. For all we know, his one and only tank has expired and he wants an exact replacement.

Two tanks with an autochangeover valve will not tell one how much is in each tank. All it will do is indicate which tank the RV is drawing from. It does not tell how much is in that tank. It also doesn't tell if the other tank is empty or not since the other tank may have been refilled already (I know that, at my age, I don't remember things as well as I used to) or if the valve is even functioning or not. I can certainly understand the OP's desire for an accurate float guage on a tank (or tanks, if the OP has more than one).

While the OP's response to Ed-Sommer's response wasn't the best on Earth, RLKBOB's response was even worse, completely out of line. What a way to welcome a new member. From there, things went totally south.
