I am a retired RV tech with 30 years working at a family owned dealership south of Boston MA. My wife and I ordered a 2013 34SK. Stored at Hilton Head Island SC. (wish we were there now) Unit has been outstanding for us. One problem with the kit light. Crossroads sent me a new one within a week. I hate to see or hear of the problems some people have. A lot of them should not have happened. Have had three Holiday Rambers in the past 15 years and they can have problems too. Still pleased with our unit and not with the dealership I bought from!

Sure sounds like someone at the Dealership changed tanks to make a sale on a used unit. I have several 20 Lb tanks used for the grill that are approaching their 12th year and recently asked a Propane Dealer what the re-certification involved. Was told as long as it wasn't rusty and still looked decent, no problem.

As far as the 20 lb tanks for grills and things, when they get too old I just exchange them for about $2 more than getting them filled. That way I have a tested and newer dated tank than what I turned in. I don't need to do the hydrostatic pressure test and re stamp the new date on my dime. Places around here have the 24 hour self service vending machines. You put yours in and take a newer one out. Simple

Make sure when you get those new tanks that you take off the plastic wrapper... saw lots of them at Costco last Fall. Guy filling tanks said that was most of their business... no one takes off the plastic, rust builds up under it in a few months and your brand new tank is NFG when you go for a refill!

I have a 2014 38gk. Does anyone know if there is a propane guage to let us know if we need to fill our tanks and if not, has anyone added something to make it easy to tell when to fill.

There are numerous items on the Market, just not sure how good they are. Google Propane Tank Gauge and see what pops up

There are no gauges or other devices on the coach. Your either do the feel test of buy an aftermarket gauge.

I just lift mine periodically to feel how heavy they are...you learn to know when the tanks are getting low.

Some only leave the active tank valve open, when they run out of gas they manually switch.

I keep both tanks open and check the drivers side regulator when I think one tank is getting low. The indicator switches to red when the tank your feeding from becomes empty. Simply through the switch to the other tank and fill the empty.


Biggest key is to check them otherwise you could drain both tanks. I rarely use the gas furnace or water heater so my tanks last quite a while.

Forgot about the indicator on the regulator...dont know about you but I have a difficult time reading it, they really did a poor job with the placement, it's very hard to see it!!

Chuck you're just getting old and need glasses! lol I do agree with you though, it is difficult to see. Hope you're not getting to cold in the Florida weather.
