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!

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

The low rating does not reflect actual use experience. It reflects the fact that it includes a bracket but no screws to attach the regulator. So I had to guess what screws to use, mounted it, but discovered a leak coming out of one of the screw holes. I believe I used a screw that was too long and punctured a hole into the chamber. I had to order another unit and will use shorter screws. It is very annoying that the correct screws are not included. The cost would be minuscule.

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Ask the Experts about this MB Sturgis Propane

  • Determining Correct Automatic Change Over Propane Regulator For Generator
    You are on the right track, but you will need to replace your current regulator hose as all of the automatic change over units are regulators, and you cannot have two regulators. To determine the correct replacement regulator for your generator you will need to know the BTU per hour requirement of the generator. You should be able to find this information in the owner's manual for your generator or by contacting the generator manufacturer. Once you know the correct BTU per hour rating...

  • 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.

  • 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.
