The plastic halo rings are largely to allow the bluetooth signal to "escape", but also allows more height for the older sensors.

If you have 30 lb tanks or are contemplating buying them to replace 20 lb tanks then you might consider spending the extra $20 or so a tank and getting ones with gauges built into them. These are float operated gauges so they should be fairly reliable, but of course require that you check the gauge on the tank.

I've got float gauges on 4 of my 20lb tanks. They're ok....but I wouldn't call them really accurate, especially when the tank gets low. But at least it's something. And saves you pulling them out and weighing them.....

If you have a built in ASME LP tank installed on your RV such as on most Class A's and C's, the Mopeka sensors can also be used on them. The app can be configured for the horizontal tank and the tank height entered in inches. I would recommend securing the sensor with something like Gorilla tape though, instead of depending on just the standard magnets for travel. The tape could also provide some protection from road debris damage.

The sensor is thick enough that the tank has to be elevated slightly to prevent crushing it. They provide feet to do this but I am not impressed with them and made my own.


The redesigned the case and made it thinner so those ussless spacer feet that never stay on the tank aren't required now.


Still need the spacer feet or the Halo ring to allow the bluetooth signal to get out. Metal tank on metal holder does not allow the signal to get out.

I have used them for one season and they work very good and very happy with them. One sensor did give me some trouble but position and dielectric grease seems to have fixed it. Will see next season.

I was thinking much the same thing, need a secure mount for holding and some protection from road exposure
