I had the Mopeka system and always had trouble getting the sensors to connect with the app. Also, the battery life is super short! They need a way to turn them off when not using them in order to conserve battery life.

I finally removed them and just rely on the regulator to tell me when one tank is empty. Then Iíll switch to the other tank and go refill the empty one.

I really wanted to like the Mopeka sensors and loved them when they worked. Just too unreliable for me.

He was correcting the OPs claim of two 30 GALLON tanks.

My latest RV, a class A, has a 20 gallon body mount tank. It has a level gage on the tank and indicators in the RV. Neither is accurate but they give a hint on when to refill.

I use my trailer enough that I can replace the batteries while the tanks are out getting refilled.

I have standard size milk crates for transporting my propane when it is time to get them refilled. The crates handle both the 20lbs and 30lbs tanks. Carry them strapped in bed of truck so they don't slide around. Like the crates which tends to prevent them from tipping over. For those tanks I use for my home grill stay in the crates till I need to use them. Made life a lot easier when transporting them.

I checked my 30 lb. tanks yesterday. I unhook them, pick them up and see how heavy and dense-feeling they are. One tank is full, the other about half full. I have plenty for my upcoming 4 night trip.

Two weeks coming up, not in remote area.
Summertime.
One tank full, the other no clue.
Plenty.
Indicator turns red, I'll refill it when I flip the switch.
