Need a new regulator

Can someone please tell me where I can purchase a new regulator for my 5th wheel. The one I had originally is a Fairview Auto changeover. Its always given me trouble from day one. I'd like to use a different manufacture if I can.

Sorry, I was hoping to get a part number or manufacture name of a regulator that is comparable to the original that someone has replaced theirs with. thanks

Thanks, Rod

If you are in a pinch contact your local LP Gas Dealer (not nessiarily a bottle refiller)
They will have Auto change over Regs. If you ask for a RegO 7525b34 you will get a unit that is made in the USA and carries a 10 year warranty. However they are more expensive

The cheap ones aren't necessarily a good buy.
I got a cheap one when my old one had stopped working totally.
Little gas flow from either tank. I replaced both tank hoses -no help-
and finally got a new regulator to get my gas flow back.

I bought a cheap auto switch reg online and it works sort of.
The little tell tale window to show red/green "main tank empty/full"
status is VERY small. You can barely see anything in the window.
It won't auto switch from the right tank to the left but works perfectly
switching from the left tank to the right......

Long story but If I had it to do over I'd pay more and get a larger
window and hopefully better quality!

I took my old one off while camping when it quit working. Drove to a near by RV dealership and was able to leave with the exact replacement. Some dealerships have a nice parts department.
