LP gas regulator 2016 salem 195bh

I have a 2016 salem 195bh . I found my 3 year old LP gas regulator had failed sometime in the last 2 weeks. ( nice find before my first camp). I do a search on the forum for LP gas regulator and I found squat. What I wanted was the make and model so I could spec it out and order a replacement. So here is all the info if you want to know what your camper has and what will work to replace it.

orig: CAVAGNA MODEL 524AS Cavagna Group 52-A-490-0013 Dual Stage Regulator Type 524AS, Horizontal Vent, Overpressure Protection Device

Replaced it with: Marshall Excelsior (MEGR-298) Excela-Flo Two-Stage Compact Regulator

So there you have it all the info you need.

How did I know it failed. 1. Stove would not light. 2. slightly loosened the hand tighten connection at the tank until I could hear gas leaking so I knew it was not the tank safety valve. 3. The tank gauge showed a full tank. I picked it up and it felt like 25+ lbs. 4. Unhooked the gas line from the (out) side of the regulator and no gas came out when I turned on the tank. 5. Oil came out of the regulator when I unhooked the hose. 6. Everything worked when I replaced it!
