Replace pressure gauge or buy new pressure regulator?

I have use a Valterra water pressure regulator with the liquid filled guage for about 4 years now. It has worked great but I left it in the RV over the winter and now it reads 100 psi even without being hooked up to the water.

So my question is, should I/can I just put a new gauge on it or replace it entirely? Any recommendations on a gauge if it can be replaced?

I'm guessing the OP doesn't want to spend another $55-60 for the complete unit.

Yes, I think I've seen oil-filled gauges being sold to screw into the original regulator.

Those Glycerin filled gauges are pretty cheap on Amazon and other places. You just need to know the range and the fitting size. It's most likely 1/8" or 1/4" npt. The case size isn't really important unless it has to fit in a recessed niche.
