The gas level checkers look interesting. I looked on ebay and had 1 truma $84 plus $14 shipping... ouch! Its interesting because its portable...and you can still swap out your tanks at an exchange place for a full tank...dont have to worry about finding a place that refills them. I had that happen in april...forgot to check and one tank was real low and didn't want to run out and the only place in the area was for an exchange.

Deryk, sounds like you would be the perfect volunteer Truma tester. Worst case result is you'll have an expensive flashlight!

LOL... yeah its an interesting idea but I did look into the worthington 20lb steel tanks with a gauge on the top of the tank for $48 each from amazon... model # 308551

Thanks Brian, you are exactly right. On closer inspection it says "07 A11", so it must mean July of 2011.

In case anyone wants the authoritative version from PHMSA:
PHMSA Orders Recall of Cylinders Manufactured by The Lite Cylinder Company

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Some more info from the RV News Service: RV News Service Some RVers “between rock and hard place” over LP cylinder recall

Not sure what "4. Follow the instructions of Lite Cylinder to safely return the cylinders to their Tennesee plant." could mean.

Just trying to be helpful here...
