If you need to know exactly, install a load cell, fill the tank to 90% with water to tell when "full" is, then monitor the load cell.

So after idling all night, we drove away....I had quite the puddle of oil underneath...and boy oh boy I wish I had taken a video of the exhaust when I took off down the road....letís just say Iím pretty sure no one saw the sun shine that day anywhere in the state....even though it was a clear day...

This is why I think translucent poly tanks are the best option....I canít imagine having stainless tanks and never knowing.

Lots of great information. Thanks for the links.

If I was to rebuild, I'd certainly opt for a tank that was ASME. I just looked through the 1974 Lee Cylinder catalogue that I found in the literature that came with our bus to see what tanks were available from them in 1974, and it looks like they did not carry any ASME tanks, only DOT certified. In looking at motor homes from 1974 I only see DOT vertical cylinders in use. There probably were ASME tanks around, but they must not have been all that common on the RV world yet.

Interestingly, all the accessories and house systems on our Custom Coach conversion seem to fall into a few categories: Anything roof vent related seems to have been pulled from the Airstream parts bins. Same for some of the interior light fixtures. Electrical systems and parts look to have been taken from Marine catalogues. Same for the generator. Interior was styled after vintage Airstream trailers with the laminated walls and rounded corners. The rest of things look like they used whatever they could find that would work, which is probably why we have these LP tanks that in every way look like they belong on a forklift and not an RV. LP dealer says that in their current configuration and use they are safe, so we'll leave them alone for now.

If you look up bendix e6 and e10 brake valve in one sentence, you will download a pdf. with differences between the two. They definitely look different from each other.Also describes operation.
