Gas regulator

My forest river Mac 176 has a propane regulator attached to the front wall of trailer. Maybe I should say partially attached as one of the mounting screw attachment points is broken off.
It is attached via a metal plate to camper body. I've searched online but,can't found one that looks anything like it. It doesn't have a manufacturer name on it, but does have a couple numbers ,one is 424 NRV and another is 51 HO.
If I can't find one or if too expensive I suppose I could make some sort of a mounting bracket that wraps around it on the side that has the broken mount.

Thanks

Ben

I doubt I'd replace it just because one of the mounting castings are broken.

Get a vinyl coated tube/hose/wire clamp and fasten it by the hose(s) near the regulator.

Looks kinda like a cavagna 424rv regulator. It's probably some knockoff though.

That's a good idea.

this is a standard 2 stage regulator....any 2 stage regulator will give you 10 to 13 psi. after the front end and around 11 inches of water colume of after on the second...they are all the same...

So the first stage is the regulator on the tank ? I see some online that have 2 connected together,1st and 2nd stage?

Thanks,
