Camco Dual Propane Tank Regulator - Flip the Lever to the Reserve Tank

The Camco Dual Propane Tank Regulator automatically switches to a full propane tank when the cylinder in service depletes. Though this changeover occurs on its own, the gas gauge will need to be manually rotated to point toward the reserve tank in order to accurately indicate the backup cylinder's fuel level.

Replaced along with new regulator. Went with a 2" longer hose.

Working as if I just installed. No more smell of propane when I walk by my 5th wheel



by:

I’m glad I found etrailer. They’ve had a lot of the parts I need and they’re service is good and staff is nice to deal with and knowledgeable.



by:

Easy Install (drilled new holes in the backing plate) and it works like a charm.
We kept smelling faint propane odors and we were going through gas too fast. We replaced all hoses and re-certified the tanks, but still smelled a faint propane odor. So, we replaced the regulator. Because the old one was still fire-ing up the stove and furnace, we did not realize that when regulators wear out, they can leak gas. Such an inexpensive fix that we plan to get another to keep on hand.
We have purchased from etrailer in the past and will continue to do so.
Note: regulator is not touching the tanks (pictures are a bit deceptive) but it sits a few inches in front of the tanks.



by:

Excellent item. It made hooking up my coffee trailer very easy to two tanks.



by:

This is the second of these Auto Changeover Regulators I have bought from etrailer. The first one went on my previous travel trailer and liked it so well, I bought one for my present unit. This newest travel trailer only had one tank. We boondock camp a lot, so one wasn't enough. These regulators come with the outlets straight out the sides, so I put L-fittings on the clean things up a bit. I love buying from etrailer, because they always ship fast and carry very good products. I've bought quite a few items over the years from etrailer, and they have never disappointed me yet,



by:

Best price and fast shipping. etrailer made it so easy. I received it on the day promised and easily installed it the same day. Works great!



by:

The regulator is a perfectly matched replacement, quality of product appears to be well made. Installation according with instructions simple to understand. Performance is satisfactory to original equipment. Delivered received a day ahead of scheduled. Order filled promptly. Thank you,.



by:

Works perfect! Quick delivery. Thanks again etrailer.

I lived in the camper for 6 months after I purchased this product, so it was in continuous use for a while. Worked great, was still working when we parked the camper in April.



by:

I always appreciate the quick product delivery and followup from etrailer. I was disappointed this time, however, with the product. There were only two machine screws provided to attach the regulator to the bracket when there should have been four; the package containing the screws had been opened prior to being placed into the regulator package. Also, in my opinion, the supplier or manufacturer should have included a new mounting bracket for the new regulator rather than providing a very generic template and requiring the purchaser to adapt the regulator to an old bracket, not very efficient. I believe the regulator is good quality, but the attachment hardware could have easily been included for a better overall product.

The regulator seems to be working as expected. I never received any response from etrailer or the manufacturer to my comments regarding the attachment hardware I havent changed my opinion about that. It is a manufacturer issue, not etrailer.



by:

I purchased a Camco 59005 propane regulator for a used travel trailer we recently purchased. I chose this item to complete an order for free shipping. I have had good service from Camco products. I was replacing a valve that was 11 years old (still working well), along with the aged rubber propane hoses. I have experienced that it is much easier and safer update rv equipment at home than in a campground while I am on vacation. Propane hoses get brittle and valves deteriorate, so I always replace anything questionable. I expect this Camco valve to give me years of good service. etrailer has treated me right on anything I have purchased from them!

Changeover valve has worked well and as expected over the last year. We used the trailer about 6 weeks this year.



by:

Bought this to replace original regulator. Seems a little cheaper made and more light duty than my original, but EVERY regulator that I found by searching GR 9984 was shaped like this one so I bought from etrailer. Installed today and everything looks good. The bracket that Was on my original regulator bolted right on this regulator. I believe this is as close to my original as can be bought. Haven’t fired up all my appliances yet, but I think it will be great. If you’ve never had the auto changeover for your dual tanks before, you should buy this and give it a try.

Still holding up. No problems. Thanks



by:

this regulator is not a direct replacement of the model 6020 Winntec regulator . I had to drill holes in the existing mounting bracket and the tapped holes had to be re-tapped to use existing screws. additionally I had to order different hoses for the tanks as the connection was different.

This regulator is designed to be an universal regulator that is used with a variety of trailers. You are correct in that it uses a pigtail like part # 100575-15-MBS that has an inverted male flare. The mounting holes on this regulator are spaced 3 inches apart on center left to right and approximately seven eights inches on center front to back.



by:

Replaced non-changeover regulator with this item. Worked great on my last travel trailer, expect nothing less on this one. Absolutely necessary to keep from guessing when you are out of propane. First became familiar with the auto-changeover feature on a 2002 fifth wheel, now I have one on my 24 ft travel trailer.

Installed this after depleting both tanks of gas on a trip. The changeover works great!



by:

New regulator and hoses on my 20 year old camper. When you smell propane and everything is tight it is a no-brainer. Appears to be very good quality and half the price of the regulator at a local RV dealer.

One year follow-up, no problems, propane is working fine on my 2000 model camper.



by:

Purchased and received the regulator in the usual prompt etrailer way. Within two months the regulator failed shutting gas off to trailer leaving us without heat or gas for cooking. A call to etrailer customer service resulted in having to make a call to Camco support directly. Camco sent a replacement regulator within a week.

The replacement was installed and has been working troublefree since.



by:

This was replacing a original regulator that was on the camper when we bought it. This was a great replacement, fit perfect and works like it should. Fittings matched all the hoses and it was really easy to replace it myself. I was given some advice from etrailer on how to remove and replace it. The help was very positive and correct. Thanks etrailer.com.



by:

Very satisfied with the product. Easy installation. Like the feature of the part that shows you if the tank is empty and will switch to the other tank.. Delivery time was right on. Will order from them again.

Tom N.

I am very happy with the Camco Propane regulator. It work as stated, no problems. Would buy another one if needed.. Deliverery was fantastic..



by:

I put this onto a 2021 Jayco HT Eagle 5th wheel, to replace the OEM unit that was recalled. I bought this instead of getting a replacement through the recall because this replacement unit has a low gas indicator and auto-switching between two propane tanks -- in my mind, basic functionality.



by:

A problem with my RV refrigerator led to the replacement of the existing propane regulator. One of the problems with the fridge was that the propane could not be adjusted to 11 in of water and a 2 stage regulator was recommended,hence the replacement. Shipping was prompt and the hipping charges were very modest and reasonable. Hookup was straightforward, but a trip to the store was necessary to get a new bracket (Simpson "strong tie") and drill some new holes in it for the machine screws to attach the regulator to the bracket. (NOTE: The screws are METRIC). After installation all the gas appliances worked just fine and the refrigerator fired up with a good healthy flame. I cannot comment about the long term reliability, since I very recently installed this item.



by:

Product has performed okay. Only issue I have is the color of the flag indicating the tanks have shifted is almost impossible to see without a flashlight.

Bill M.

8/28/2018

Lasted about nine months then failed. Will no longer shift automatically. I replaced it with another brand because this is the second Camco regulator I have had to replace prematurely.



by:

So far so good. Great replacement to the one that failed. It's used in a remote cabin propane system similar to an RV setup.
Also very fast service.

Kevin H.

Still working perfectly.



by:

This product did not meet my needs for a higher volume of propane coupled with the larger tanks. I am switching it out for a hi capacity regulator.

Quality products at a good price, fast shipping. What could be better.

2. Camco Propane Supply Hose - ACME Nut x Male Inverted Flare - 15" Long - CAM59065
3. Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator for Dual Propane Tanks - CAM59005



by:

The product is fine but I didn't realize that I needed special adapter pieces to make the item connect to the propane and bbq. . I spent a while at Loews trying to find the adapter fittings. They had no clue but the sales help just didnt know . I will seek out a plumber. I am not super smart about plumbing fixtures so this may not be a problem for others but I wish it were clearer with the product packaging what adapters were needed to connect this to propane and the the grill.



by:

The dual propane tank rack I ordered works great! I installed it on the frame of my pop up camper, and changed from single tank to two tanks. I also ordered the regulator and the pigtails for the tanks. So happy with the ship time and installation.

  • Is There a Propane Regulator Specially for 30Lb Tanks
    There is no such thing as a 30 lb propane tank regulator. The propane regulators we offer will all reduce the water column down to 11" which can be used on 20lb, 30lb, 50lb, 100lb etc. propane tanks. In order to replace your regulators you can either use the Camco Vertical 2-Stage Propane Regulator part # CAM59313 or the Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator part # CAM59005 which are both Camco products. Please note that the propane regulator needs to be placed no more than...

  • Can The Camco 90-Degree Brass Propane Tee # CAM59143 Be Used In A Dual Tank System
    The Camco 90-Degree Brass Propane Tee # CAM59143 can be attached to dual tanks with the correct adapters/hoses but hooking two tanks directly to this tee would cause them to backflow into each other. You would need to use a regulator like # CAM59005 that has two inputs and one output fitting and then run an adapter hose from the output of the regulator to this tee.

  • Can the Brass Adapters Be Removed on the Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator
    The brass adapter fittings on the inlet sides of the Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator for Dual Propane Tanks part # CAM59005 simply convert the NPT threads on the regulator to inverted flare. If you have hoses with NPT fittings you can simply remove the adapters with a wrench. Please note, NPT fittings will require thread sealant like part # 37207-30025.

  • Does Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator Come with a Mounting Bracket
    Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator for Dual Propane Tanks Item # CAM59005 does not come with a mounting bracket. If it happens to not fit directly in place of the old regulator then a bracket would need to be fabricated. The mounting holes are spaced 3 inches apart on center lengthwise and 7/8 inches on center widthwise. See included picture.

  • Can Horizontal Propane Regulator Mount Vertically
    The regulator vent allows the regulator to "breathe" during normal operation and functions as a pressure relief opening in an over-pressure situation. For this reason, propane regulators must be pointed down, covered and protected, or have an adapter attached that places the vent opening in a downward facing position.

  • Proper Mounting Position for Camco Automatic Changeover Propane Regulator
    I can help answer your question about the Camco Automatic Changeover Propane Regulator # CAM59005. According to my contact at Camco the vent on the regulator needs to be pointing down so that no moisture can get into it. I've linked an image of the proper position for your convenience.

  • Should Propane Leak From The Hose When I Remove The Tank on Fifth Wheel Trailer
    You are correct, gas should not be able to leak from the hose when you remove the tank. It sounds like you have a stuck or defective check valve in the regulator or the pigtail. Sometimes corrosion can build up and cause the back check valve to stay open. Some customers have been able to use a small amount of spray lubricant or PB Blaster to loosen up any build up that may have caused the check valve to stay open, but your best option is to replace the regulator and the hose completely,...

  • Troubleshooting Propane Regulator That Only Works on One Side
    Start off by checking your pigtail. If you change your switch so that it is turned towards the side that isn't working and then swap your pigtails as well this will tell you if you need to simply replace a pigtail or if your have a bad regulator. If you find that it works when you swap the pigtail as well then you just need to replace your pigtail. If your regulator has the gold fittings on it where the pigtail attaches then you need part # 100575-12-MBS. Otherwise you would need part...

  • Can The Camco 2-Stage Regulator CAM59005 Be Used To Connect Two Propane Tanks To A Generator
    Yes, the Camco Automatic Changeover Regulator # CAM59005 can be used to connect two propane tanks to run a generator. You can use the Camco Propane Supply Hose # CAM59153 to connect the two tanks to the regulator. You will just need to verify the correct nominal outlet pressure required by your generator, as well as finding the correct fitting to connect a hose from the regulator to your generator.

  • Replacement Two Stage Automatic Changeover Regulator for Jayco
    I do have a great replacement auto changeover regulator option for your trailer, the Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator part # CAM59005 but we don't offer any brackets. The mounting pattern is a standard however so you should be able to use this regulator with your old bracket. There are four standoff tabs on the back of the regulator which you will use for mounting.

  • How to Connect Two 20 Lb Propane Tanks Together
    In order to connect two 20 lb propane tanks to one another you are going to need a regulator with an auto changeover feature like the Camco Automatic Changeover 2-Stage Propane Regulator part # CAM59005. This regulator will pull from one tank until that tank is empty then it will automatically draw from the second tank. You can then use the Camco Propane Cylinder Gas Gauge and Leak Detector part # CAM59023 to tell how much gas is left in the tank and the Camco Propane Supply Hose part...

  • Gas Not Switching to Secondary Tank After Regulator Replacement
    A 2-stage propane regulator like part # 108220 is not designed to switch over the gas from one tank to another. In order to switch the flow of gas from one tank to another you would need to use an auto changeover regulator like part # CAM59005. A 2-stage and auto changeover regulator may both look the same but are very different in function. This is likely why the gas is not switching for the empty tank and not a failed secondary regulator like part # 108072.

  • Is MB Sturgis High Capacity Two-Stage Auto Changeover Regulator # CAM59005 Adjustable
    The MB Sturgis High Capacity Two-Stage Auto Changeover Regulator # CAM59005 is not adjustable. The first stage brings the pressure to 10 psi and then the second to 11 inch water column. These can't increase the pressure of a system though. You should note that nearly all RV applications use 11 inch water column.

  • Can Two Propane Tanks Be Tee'd Together Before The Regulator
    No, if you put two tanks together on the same line before the regulator you would run the risk of one tank backfeeding into the other tank and could overfill one tank, which would be extremely dangerous. If you wanted to use the third tank as a back up you would just need to remove the hose of one of the other two tanks from the regulator and use a hose like the MB Sturgis Sturgi-Stay Propane Fill Hose # 100019-60 to connect the regulator # CAM59005 inlet.

  • How to Correctly Measure a Propane Hose
    In order to correctly measure a propane hose you will need to measure end to end (fitting to fitting). The propane hoses we sell are by the foot so this may make it easier to determine what you need. It is also a good idea to get a hose that is a bit longer than what you need to account for any errors during measuring. For example, the MB Sturgis Propane Hose Assembly part # 100383-48-MBS is 4' long end to end. I have attached a list of our propane selection for you as well.
