I have similar issue with older Coachman built in tank. Snap on gauge always showed full. Replaced it and now always shows empty. I don't think my tank has a float. As I understand it, the snap on gauge makes contact with a wire in the tank and measures resistance to determine the level, or something like that.

Its a float gauge. Resistance gauges are not used in small (1 gallon - 90,000 gallon) tanks
Low cost rules

Please post a picture and there should br a number stamped on the gauge head.
Here is the "float" numbers. Can you make out the etchings?

I had a hard time reading the stampings clearly, but didn't find anything definitive on replacement floats.

The data label off the tank would probably allow us to find a replacement float.

That looks like 1¼" tapered threaded mount.

A regular propane dealer can get a float if you give them the manufacture name ( Worthing or Manchester ) and the diameter of the tantrum which will be on the data tank . I would let them change out the gauge because the tank must be evacuated be it can be worked on .

The measurement you need is12.13 OD . With that they should be able to get the right part .

As Baba said, with the 12" dimension and the thread size you can find a replacement float assembly.

I found a few screw in models that fit a 12" tank.
