Most tanks do not have a gauge. If so then that would be perfect. A gauge is an add on that most people don't add.

I should have said indicator, not gauge.
When the top half of the window is red, you have an empty tank.
The lever indicates which tank is empty. Turn the lever to the full tank and you can remove the empty one and get it filled.

Re fridge

If you are still in Oregon you might try Wayde's Mobile RV repair in Eugene. A few years ago our Fridge was cooling poorly. Wayde put in a rebuilt cooling unit that has worked fine ever since. Wayde was fast and reasonably priced.

Over the years I have had much better luck with mobile rv repair than brick and mortar shops.
