If you’re hitting the road soon, and you plan on using propane for various appliances during your trip, it’s important to check the level of your ASME tank to ensure you have enough LP to last the whole way. Some ASME systems come equipped with an exterior propane level gauge that simplifies this process, but most do not, which means you have to remove the tank and weigh it to check how much propane you have left.

Thankfully, Truma has created an intuitive ultrasound product that allows you to easily and accurately perform a propane level gauge prior to taking off in your RV. The Truma Level Check makes the process a snap–in just seconds, you’ll get an exact reading of the amount of LP you have left. In this lesson, RV expert Dave Solberg walks you through a quick demonstration for using the Level Check to measure the level on any ASME tank. Just push the button, and you’ve got an instant readout!

    My plastic tub in my 3 year old travel trailer has two small cracks right at the drain. Does anyone have any advise on how to fix it? Thanks

      Hi Jill,

      I would start by drilling a very small hole at each end of both cracks to stop the spread of the crack. It only has to be about 1.25 times the size of the crack so maybe a 1/32” or so? There are several plastic patch components on the market, some epoxies have an adhesive and accelerant, others like JB Weld just in a tube. I have recently become a fan of the spray on sealant that was advertised on TV with the guy in the cut in half boat! I used it on several home projects that have been “leak gremlins” for a couple of years, and recently on a shower basin that had multiple hairline cracks and leaks. I sprayed the entire base and it worked great. Might be something you can mask off and just do a circle around the cracks? You can find a can at any home improvement store.

    Instead of weighing the tank: remove the tank, pour hot water on the tank. The hot water can be out of your hot water tank. Taking care not to burn yourself feel the tank from the bottom up where the cold and hot line is. That line is how full the tank is. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LoAqO0MxYc
