Your best bet would be a propane tank service company. In the mean time, I would dry everything out and seal it all with a rubberized sealant.

I have the same system but had a slightly different problem. I called CC
and they sent me a new sender for the tank.

All is well

Hopefully I can be of some assistance with your LP gauge issue.

I would assume that your RV uses the standard ASME LP Tank that is mounted horizontally which seems to be standard in the RV industry and is likely made by Manchester, and it uses a gauge and sending unit that is likely made by Rochester Gauges, Inc.

A little background info for your reference, the LP sending unit assembly is attached directly to the horizontal LP container. The mechanical float assembly is situated inside the container and corresponds with the sending unit/gauge which is secured on the outside of the container. The float assembly activates a magnet positioned at the rear of the gauge. The magnet actually moves the needle on the gauge which in turn "sends" the corresponding electrical signal to the monitor panel.

The replacement electrical sending unit that, again seems to be a standard in the RV industry, is likely rated at 0-90 ohm's and is available from Rochester Gauges or many large RV stores carry these as a replacement. If it is infact a 90 ohm sending unit, as the one on my 2001 Monaco Dynasty, that is mounted on a 40 Gal LP tank, it is referenced under a Rochester part no. P5628S02537 (Jr Size).

As information, these are very easy to change out by removing two small #6-32 screws that secure the gauge to the tank assembly.

For your assistance, I have included two documents that you may find helpful that references the Rochester Gauges.

Hope this helps and Happy RV'g.

Yukon Jack nailed it. Thats the one based on tank size and location.


Where were you when I was looking for my sender?

Hi Jack,

Thanks for the reply, very helpful. My gauge looks almost exactly like the one in the PDF's you attached with the exception that it is not held on with screws but 4 plastic catches which are part of the clear plastic moulding. It is one of these catches or clips that has broken therefore the gauge is not held firm to the tank. However you have given me the start point I am sure I will now be able to source the correct version.

Kind regards

IF you can get it dried out and working, GOOP can seal that lug.

But that said, I don't think you can get it dried out and working.. In fact I don't think *I* could get it dried out and working, and, well.. I have the tools and knowledge (IT is not just water getting in that is the problem, there is another issues I suspect, and that's the real problem) but if it works dry.. Then dry it out and try some goop to seal it up.

You can find GOOP adheasive sealent in the glue isle most anywhere but Wal-mart and Lowes. They do not sell to Wal-Mart.
Home is where I park it!
