LP Reader

I use this system:
Mopeka TankCheck LPG Tank Check Dual Sensor with Monitor Kit

it can read the level of your tanks from hundreds of miles away with the phone app. It is about $90.00 and does a good job.

I removed the auto change over because having 1 empty tank and having a full tank is better then having 2 empty tanks at 3 in the morning. (just my thoughts)

Agree with the 'not having 2 empty tanks' but for a different reason--don't want to face my wife at 3am and no propane...

Why remove the auto change over just leave the other tank off until needed that is what I usually do.

Exactly, the 'auto-changeover' can't change if the other tank is off--that's my method.

Same here. When it empties I close the valve and open tank #2 valve. The only downside to this method is the middle of the night and no heat. I'm used to it, the misses not so much. However she doesn't winter camp so its all good.

Go out early morning when itís cool outside you will see a DEW line on outside of tank thatís the level of the propane. You can also get a propane gauge from Walmart lawn and garden center instal on main outgoing gas line it should be in area where BBQ grills are. Hope this helps

We purchased a tank level gauge that screws onto the tank then the hose screws into the gauge. I have two tanks marked 1 and 2 I use number one. When it gets close to empty I'll use number 2 BTW, I had the tanks full in 2016 when I purchased my 2017 Eagle HT 27.5 RLTS And, Have not had to use the second tank yet! I run the fridge on auto as I use the campground power. And only use the propane enroute to the campground to keep the fridge cold. I have a separate 20lb tank that I use for my Q2000 or the Blackstone griddle.
