Who can identify these parts of 1989 Warrior LP tank



Hi, new here. Nice to meet y'all. Can anyone tell me what the rectangular part of this LP tank is? And any of the other parts... 1989 Winnebago Warrior 27 ft Class C.
Thanks.

Regulator? I've never seen a rectangular one but based on the location, that's my guess...The part with the wire is a solenoid valve.

MeThinks regulator too. I've been smelling a bit of LP (outside near the tank) since I fired this mother up today. She's been in hibernation since October (Minnesota, don't cha know). THinking I should probably do a soapy water test..

Wondering as well if tightening or loosening the nut head on the red circle will increase or decrease the pressure sensitivity.?

That is the fill vent, it should remain firmly closed except when filling the tank...

...And I'm wondering IF we will be able to hear the explosion all the way down south???!!!

Seriously, friend, this is ONE system best left to the professionals. Fortunately, the gas folks tend to be very helpful without breaking the bank. They want to maintain an excellent safety record and foster high levels of confidence in the use of LP gas. They have a stake in making sure everything is A~OK.

Take your rig by a certified dealer and ask them to give you a quote for an inspection. I'm betting it is either free, or "front pocket" money at the most. Then you will know everything you need to know ...and possibly prevent failure or, worse yet, an accident.
Travel safely!
Jim

In your first picture, from the top right, you have the vapor supply shut off valve, to the left pressure regulator, and a shut off solenoid. The electric solenoid is not used by all manufacturers.
I'd shut the vapor supply off, and after a number of hours if you still smell the trace odor , then judging by the amount of rust on the tank it may have developed a pin hole leak, a dangerous situation. do not park the RV in an enclosed ( garage) area until the situation is resolved.

I would doubt that the tank would rust thru, the metal is nearly a half inch thick. It's more likely one of the valves has a bad seal.

So you are talking about a scrap yard as opposed to a salvage yard, since you said they only remover the tank?

I believe Skip426 is correct.

BTW, I suggest you have a professional check your LP system and tank for leaks.
Most "LP/propane dealers" can/will do that...(as well as correct any LP problem).
