Propane Pigtail

Another cold night another failed pigtail. I have replace pigtails on both tanks and it seems that its time to replace another one. Any idea if one pigtail make is better than another? I would pay double for one to last a little longer.

Loss of pressure in the system. I will have a green indicator until I use the system then it turns red and the pressure is lost. When I have replaced the 2 pigtails it has solved the problem.

I'm not sure your pigtails are the problem.

Have you read my thread "propane fyi"

Did did read that but I assumed that when you said froze you were talking out frost. So you think the auto swap did not operate all the way?

It may just be a bad regulator, but my auto-swap only swaps properly about 50% of the time. I was thinking that the malfunction was caused by the auto-swap closing and opening too quickly, and this closes the safety valves in the pigtail.....

Well maybe it is the swap. It did swap some time during the night. I will mess with it tomorrow and see what I find.
