Hello all. I have a 2010 Rockwood Roo 23B Hybrid travel trailer. Everytime we use the furnace, there is a "squeeking" noise that comes from our LP Gas regulator. When the furnace shuts off, the noise goes away. It seems to only happen when we use the furnace. When we have the Fridge on the LP gas, it does not make that noise. Very weird. Has anyone experienced this? Is there a fix? It is more annoying than anything. My wife cannot sleep because our bed is right over the tanks at night and it bothers her. Trying to get this resolved. Any help would be appreciated.


Regards,
JT

The squeaking occurs during high volume gas use. Sounds like a faulty regulator.

Yup...

Replace the regulator.

Hi,

It might also be the excess flow valve inside the portable tanks. does it happen with just one tank, or both of them? Try another tank from a BBQ or neighbor's tank, just to make sure.

The regulator is not that expensive, and easy to replace yourself.

Fred.
