Pace Arrow 1979 Propane Regulator Cracked

My Pace Arrow 1979's propane regulator needs replacing, it cracked! ??? Not sure what to get. Current one is not original, the guy I bought the RV said he didn't know if it was the right kind "but the stove worked, furnace and hotwater heater too." >_>

Only a couple of types of regulators, single stage & dual stage.
Single is used mostly on BBQs and other fixed flow items. With multi appliances attached, yours should be a dual stage. Take the old one with you to a RV or propane supply store explain what it's for , I'm sure you'll get what you need.

The dual stage has a hi flow sensor built into it. If something should happen to one of the propane lines allowing unrestricted flow through it for some reason (like an accident) it's designed to shut off the propane flow.

You can go to a propane dealer or an RV dealer and they should be able to fix you up with a minimum amount of fuss. Just tell them you're working on a motor home with a frame mounted tank. They should be able to take it from there. -Al

Even though they look alike, there are horizontal and vertical ones and it does make a difference.
