Need advice on Regulator replacement. Which one?

I will be needing to replace my propane regulator when I return to my off grid trailer in TX this winter, but I don't know which one to get. I plan on buying at home, then bringing it down with me, as there are no stores nearby where my trailer is set up.
It's a 1997 Forest River Wildwood (5th wheel) with two 30# tanks. The trailer overall I would guess is 36' - 38'in length.
I should have taken part numbers off the regulator before I left last winter, but I didn't.
So, who can tell me which replacement regulator I need to buy?
Thank you!!!!

Where do the tanks reside? Are they right beside each other, or are they on opposite sides of the trailer?

Bruce, the tanks are right beside each other.
I have found regulators that *look* like they'd work, but I don't know what kind of pressure I should be looking for in a regulator. It's more the technical side of things I'm unsure about.

RV propane regulators all operate at the same pressure, 11 wc inches (approx .4 psi).
