Regulator Problem

Was out this weekend with our 2016 2304ks and my son was in the Trailmanor we previously used. He recently installed a new Mr. Heater, 2 stage auto changer-over regulator. It worked fine at his home but this weekend in the field, it would run for only a short while and then show the tank was empty. If all appliances were off, it would show a full tank and then would fail again. Any ideas?? Regulator just trash? He purchased it at CW and plans to replace.

You may have gotten a bad pigtail ( the hose from the tank to the regulator) that could cause the issue you describe.

Regulator Problem

What are the odds that both pig-tails are bad? The problem was the same with both bottles.

Propane Problem

Looks like it may be the hose from regulator to trailer manifold. No strong odor of gas but problem was not corrected with a new regulator. Search goes on!!

You did not mention you had a problem with the unit before you replaced the regulator . that's a big piece of info . if you have a leak some where that can cause the gas to shut down.

"Burnking": There have been many post regarding problems with pigtail hoses. Even though your unit is a 2016 you could still have a hose problem. No one knows how long these hoses were at the manufacturer before being installed. One thing that does happen is that the inner liner rubber hose will collapse and the outside hose will look just fine. This happens a lot to auto brake hoses also. Those pigtails are not expensive so try two new ones.
