Picked up a new regulator from our local RV parts store made my Marshall. Cost was $22. Notice that the unit is one piece not two jammed together like the original. Also notice that on the back side is 4 holes in the housing. These holes are exactly the right size to be tapped for 8 x 32tpi screws. I fashioned an "L" shaped bracket from Aluminum flatbar, tapped two of the holes in the back of the regulator and attached the bracket to it. I also drilled a hole in the bottom of the bracket and through the metal plate on the LP tank to attach the bracket securely to the tank. There will be NO movement in this system.

So if we see a Georgetown going down the road with flames shooting out the passenger side, it's not yours!

I have a friend who totally restored an old classic GM motorcoach.
It was beautiful and looked like it came right out of the showroom.
One hot summer day they were driving across Kansas with the
genset running so they could use the roof AC to cool.
A muffler bracket broke and allowed exhaust from the genny to
blow directly on an inside wall.
By the time they smelled smoke and realized something was wrong
there were flames coming out the back.
They got out with their cat and that's pretty much all.
It was a total loss and devastated them as they'd worked for years
on the restore.
It was a flimsy original equipment bracket.

I'm really glad YOU didn't loose everything too!!
Maybe you should report your LP leak to the USDOT???
Do you think there should be a recall or at least a bulletin?
Be careful out there!
