Georgetown 378 LP Gas Reading

Took delivery in January LP gas full. Spent a couple nights in it and used some LP showed 3/4 full when done. MH was stored for about six weeks , was winterized and gas valve turned off at tank. Took it out this past weekend for a couple nights every thing worked as it should but the LP level at the control center shows full. Did it make gas ......?

Probably because now warmer temperature and gas (liquid) expands.

I thought about that but temps have been about the same. Just can't believe as much LP as we have used it would still show full.

Check that you werent topped off with a mix of propane and air. Had that happen a few years ago and the level would never get below 1/4 but the stove and hot water heater would start to falter. Best way to check is to open pressure relief valve at the tank and let some propane out by hand. If you get a nice fine mist then you are probably ok, but if you release and you see no mist then you have pure grade a air.

OK. I admit it. I filled it up when you weren't looking.

I would take the control center reading with a grain of salt. I have never found that monitor to be overly accurate, on our Georgetown or in past coaches. Go outside and look at the gauge on the tank itself -that will be much more accurate.

As for being "topped off with a mix of propane and air" - I'm not sure how that could even happen? How would one do this?

I think the more likely explanation is an inaccurate reading at the control panel.

BTW, sort of related to this - we noticed our propane level dropping quite quickly over the holidays and discovered the regulator vent was leaking. Had to have the regulator replace at the dealer and now all is well.

I find that eating too many of my favorite Bush Baked Beans increases the gas supply.

Speaking of bush baked beans. Just north of pigeon forge tennessee is where they make them. They also have a museum , store an eatery. Well worth the time if you are around the area
