Marshall and Cavagna are hard to find right now. Fairview have good rep but $$$. Here's a link that has some in stock.

Fairview is junk.

Marshall Excelsior is USA made, good quality.

Marshall Excelsior MEGR 253P on Amazon.

The letter P means retail package. You want this, I bought one that was not retail pack and it was in a plastic bag and broken due to shipping damage. The retail pack is hard plastic to protect it.

This regulator has the fitting for pigtails with the reverse flare on the ends. Some do not use this and use 1/8 pipe thread directly into the regulator.

You can also find ME pigtails on Amazon in 15 and 24 inch lengths and with metal braid or just plastic jacket.

PDF file of ME 2021 Camping and RV catalog, very informative.

But the problem I see is the statement that it usually ships in 1 to 2 months [emoticon]

My trailer came with this one and it was terrible to read and unreliable to empty the primary tank.

My Cavagna works far better to me. Easy to read. The red snaps into place with no guesswork.

Unfortunately if somebody has one it is over $100 vs the regular price of maybe $60.
