Smart Gas Watch ??

Anyone using one of these?

You wouldn't be able to use this and have the tank clamped down to your A-frame. It's basically weighing the tank.

You'd have to take your tanks off and put them on the scale. Doesn't sound like something I'd want to do.

I use the Truma propane tank gauge. It is dead on accurate and so easy to use.

Hadn't heard about that! Nice

I asked the "Smart Gas" folks if their device could be used under an RV tank that is tied down during travel and released when you park. I would imagine tying the tank down might damage the scale as it has a 43 pound limit. Too bad because a remote LP gauge for under $30 would be great for the RV community

Looks like Dometic make one too, which is a little cheaper (tho' don't know how they compare)

I might consider one of these myself, since I know that the pressure "gauges" are all but useless for LP.

thanks, did not know about this gadget,
if you're in the market for one,
I just found the link below and ordered from ebay,
lowest price I could find, new item/$44.98/free shipping/no tax,
just slightly higher than the Dometic one,
(actually after Amazon sales tax, it may be about the same)
but from the reviews, IMO it's probably more accurate,
just 8 left

I was talking to the rv parts guy last week. He told me about these Bluetooth magnets that go on the tanks, then connect to your phone, to give you the tank levels...
What will they think of next...

With everything interfacing with your "smart" phone, what will that individual do when it falls into the toilet, and the total connectivity is kaput, is what I would like to observe.

I'm guessing he'll have bigger things to worry about than whether he can read his propane tank level or not!
