Propane won't fill

Have a 2014 Thor ACE and the horizontal propane tank wouldn't fill. Talked to Giant RV???Going to Quartzite and wanted a full tank, 80%. So I called Manchester Tank. Spoke with one of their engineers. He suggested that I call him back when I'm at the propane fill station should the problem reoccur. It did, I did. Turns out the gasket was missing on the fill nozzle on the motorhome. Manchester is sending a new nozzle with gasket, just need a gasket. The propane filler used the gasket from and old fill valve, same size, filled just fine. $1.50 May get a spare in Quartzite.

Somewhere Giant RV has an extra gasket.

BTW Manchester Tank and Eric get an A+ from me.

Thank you.

So let's see where the moderator moves this post to.

Probably lying on the ground near where they did the initial fill prior to delivery of the coach.

Might be able to match the gasket at a decent hardware store.

Check with forklift parts people if all else fails.
Common gasket for that application.
Wouldn't hurt to carry a spare.
They just sit in a groove.
