aarrgh.. propane regulator leaking
so i go to get the rv from the storage yard so i can work on a few minor issues (dead bolt on the door, mount some key holders, etc) and when i walk around the rv, i hear a hissing from the propane compartment.
i shut down the valve and the hissing stopped. i turn it back on and the hissing starts up again. so i shut it down and bring the rv home.
the hissing was under the white plastic box cover which i removed and found the 2 stage high pressure regulator.
when i turned the propane back on, the hissing started and i can see it is leaking propane out the vent at the bottom of the regulator. i also noticed the 2nd stage screw in the center was loose. so i turned off the propane and tightened the screw down to snug. turned the propane back and the hissing still happens with no change.
i think i have a bad regulator. too much of a hassle to get the dealer to fix this in less than 1 week. it'll take that long to get an appointment i think since i can't call till monday. was thinking of just spending the $20 tomorrow and doing it myself...
anything else i should check to make sure it's just not the regulator? is there a check valve somewhere that could have gone bad or anything else that could have caused a nearly new regulator to go bad?
