I purchased this regulator in the fall of 2020. I installed it after I received it but did not use it until spring of 2021. The first time I used it the change over indicator did not turn red until both tanks were depleted. In addition the regulator would constantly whistle/hum during use. At the end of this season it would only deliver from one input. So apparently there was no quality control testing of this regulator after production. I would not recommend this regulator to anyone.


Comments
I contacted the manufacturer and they are stumped on the humming as this has not been a complaint before. At times, regulators can hum depending on the strength of the backcheck in the pigtail but it should not be a problem in your case, since you are using their brand of pigtail. Only one side delivering is strange because these are not made to shut one side down. The design always keeps both sides open, besides the internal valve lever that you can switch to one side or the other. The indicator not turning red until both tanks are depleted is an internal cam not moving properly. Unfortunately, these do not have a warranty.

Genuinely excellent service.

Accurate description and fast delivery.

Works great! Perfect replacement for my aging regulator.

It fit and work great

Purchased the MB Sturgis Regulator and Hoses to replace a competitors auto changeover regulator that was leaking around a seal. I prefer to buy products assembled by America worker's, so the MB Sturgis products fit the bill.

E-Trailer had all the items I wanted, at an affordable price (better than that other retailer who's name begins with "A") my order qualified for free shipping and was delivered in a timely manner.

This is my first purchase from E-Trailer, but it certainly won't be my last.

Thanks E-Trailer!

Was looking for a a complete setup for an overhead garage heater with a 50,000 btu demand. I was unsure of some issues especially with which regulator should be used. Crystal with customer service was very helpful and answered all of my numerous questions, and was very knowledgeable in all the products that etrailer sells to their customers. Shipping was very fast to my state of Pennsylvania, and I would highly recommend this company to others and will order from again. As a final note, this was the second company I called. I was going to order from a company in a bordering state that was only (80) miles from my house. In talking with them, I found out they could not answer the questions I had about their products. I declined to order from them, and ordered thru etrailer. I am sure glad I did.




by:

The propane regulator arrived on time and without blemish. I installed it suing the enclosed bracket. I would have liked the bracket more if it was U shaped vs L shaped for my application on a threaded rod. I like the way the indicator is visible 360 degrees since it is located behind the electric motor of the tongue lift. Within seconds of connecting it to a full tank of propane, the indicator went green. I look forward to seeing how it performs during switch-over. We use a 30# cylinder about every 6-8 days depending on temps. Providing hex head self tap screws vs Philips head screws would improve the product. Customer service for ordering was excellent.




by:

Please reference my previous review in that I gave a low rating due to the mounting screws not being included. I used my own screws and punctured the housing which caused a leak. I should have had a little patience and contact etrailer to send me the screws but I chose to go ahead with what turned out to be a problem. I accepted this as my fault. However, etrailer took notice of the comment, initiated contact and sent me an authorization to return the regulator that I damaged. This is a great example of customer service! If you want the best in service and the knowledge that problems will be resolved, make etrailer your default vendor. It is not always about price!




by:

Shipped and delivered quickly. Was exactly as described. Will definitely do business with etrailer again.




by:

Great online ordering experience, product arrived quickly and correctly. I'm in the process of installing it now, but having to make an additional bracket since it's replacing a very old unit and the mounting is completely different.




by:

I never buy anything without doing thorough research. This Made in America regulator comes from a quality manufacturer. I bought it along with pigtail hoses and feed line hose from the same manufacturer. When I decided on these components I shopped around and found that etrailer had the best price and shipped them to me quickly. I am very happy with the products and service I got from etrailer.




by:

This regulator works perfectly. It turned from red to green when I turned on the propane. Since my tanks are full right now I can’t comment on the automatic changeover. But right now, I’m extremely satisfied.




by:

Great Product/ Looks well built and easy to use. Looking forward to installing on my RV to upgrade from the old non-selectable regulator. Also worked with E-trailer on shipment question and was very happy with the customer service.




by:

Very quick shipping. Regulator works gr eat.




by:

Good quality product. Just installed and everything seems to be working great.




by:

Just received it. Looks good but ask again once I have had the time to install and use it. Therefore an average rating at this time




by:

Shipping fast needed a special adapter they took care of me and shipped it right out great service will buy from them again

  • Troubleshooting Low Propane Pressure
    The MB Sturgis High Capacity Two-Stage Auto Changeover Regulator Item # 888001-MBS should be maintaining 9" WC or above so you may have a defective regulator and need to replace it. Your regulator should have a an adjustment screw underneath the regulator cap that you can turn to raise or lower the pressure. Typically turning the screw clockwise will raise the pressure but your regulator should have an indicator on stating which way to turn the screw. If this does not solve your issue...

  • Recommended Replacement For A Winntec 6020 Propane Regulator
    You can replace your Winntec 6020 Propane Regulator with the MB Sturgis High Capacity Two-Stage Auto Changeover Regulator # 888001-MBS. The automatic changeover feature isn't required but makes it much easier to switch over from one tank to the other instead of unscrewing the type-1 fitting pigtail from one tank and screwing it onto the other tank.

    The Winntec 6020 Regulator is a simple low pressure dual stage regulator so you can use anyone that meets these two criteria to replace it. The MB Sturgis High Capacity Two-Stage Auto Changeover Regulator part # 888001-MBS is a great option for this and will work well.

  • Where is Adjustment Screw for MB Sturgis High Capacity Two-Stage Auto Changeover Regulator
    The cap you're looking for is the larger of the two on the MB Sturgis High Capacity Two-Stage Auto Changeover Regulator # 888001-MBS. You'll have to remove two caps to access the adjustment screw but this really should only be done by a professional since it's dealing with propane. If the your regulator isn't performing as it should then it's easier/safer/and probably cheaper to just replace the regulator than to try to make the adjustment yourself or pay to have it professionally done.

  • Replacement Regulator for 2020 Jayco with 1 or 2 tanks
    If your Jayco has two tanks, as many do, then I would choose the MB Sturgis # 888001-MBS two stage regulator. I like that it has a mounting flange that attaches to the propane dual-bottle frame. If your Jayco has only one tank then the MB Sturgis # 108220 will work for you as long as you can use the 1/4" female NPT inlet and 3/8" female NPT outlet which is pretty standard.

  • Adding 100lbs Propane Tank To Existing Dual 20lbs Propane Tanks

The red type 1 ACME fitting will connect to one of your tanks, and the pigtail from the tank will connect to the brass side of the fitting. Then you connect the POL side of the included 6' hose to connect to your 100lbs tank. For an auto change over regulator, the MB Sturgis High Capacity Two-Stage Auto Changeover Regulator...

  • Troubleshooting Propane Leaking Out of Disconnected Hose on the Other Side of a Propane Regulator
    From what you are describing it sounds like you have a change over regulator that has gone bad. There shouldn't be a way for the propane to go through the regulator and out of the disconnected hose unless the regulator has a fault. I would recommend replacing your regulator with one like the MB Sturgis High Capacity Two-Stage Auto Changeover Regulator # 888001-MBS.

This regulator has an operational temperature range of -20F to 120F (-40C to 55C). It has a top view indicator to check your propane level.

  • Whistling Noise in Propane Bay of 5th Wheel When Heater is Running
    Let's differenciate between whistling, whining, or humming. The regulator has a diaphragm that oscillates and can make what is called a humming noise, and that is normal operation.. If you have whistling, then read on. There are several possibilities related to a whistling noise when using propane. Let's start with safety. If you smell gas or hear a hissing noise around your tanks or lines you may have a leak and need to use some soapy water on all parts and joints to see if it bubbles...

  • Replacing The 2-Stage Regulator In A 2005 Forest River Work And Play Toy Hauler Trailer
    The MB Sturgis High Capacity Two-Stage Auto Changeover Regulator # 888001-MBS wouldn't hurt your system as it is still going to reduce to 11" WC at the second stage but wouldn't be advantageous to have a higher BTU rating than what you actually need. You'll want to match the BTU rating as close as you can to the demand. The Compact Low Pressure 2-Stage Automatic Changeover RV LP Gas Regulator # 37207-31525 has a BTU rating of 262,500 which is typically more than enough for an RV.

  • Can The 888001-MBS Be Horizontally Mounted?
    I have a solution for you, the MB Sturgis High Capacity Two-Stage Auto Changeover Regulator # 888001-MBS can not be horizontally mounted, do to the location of its vent, It has to be vertically mounted. However the Camco Horizontal 2-Stage Propane Regulator - 160,000 Btu/Hr # CAM59323 can be mounted horizontal. Just to make a note, due to the location of the vent on this regulator it can only be mounted in the horizontal position not in a vertical one.

This sounds like what you are seeking as the Compact Low Pressure 2-Stage Automatic Changeover RV LP Gas Regulator # 37207-31525 is a similar item but only has a 262,500 Btu rating.

    Yes, you are on the right track. You would essentially be setting up 2 separate 2 tank systems. So using (2) of the MB Sturgis High Capacity Two-Stage Auto Changeover Regulator # 888001-MBS will work great for that. You would then also want (4) of the MB Sturgis Propane Pigtail # 100575-15-MBS to connect your tanks to the regulators.
