Chronology :

June 27, 2022: A Field Safety Advisory from Engineered Controls International, LLC (RegO), Manchester Tank’s supplier, advised that RegO had identified a potential issue with the female Prest-O Lite (POL) threads on a limited number of RegO model 901C3 and model 901C5 service valves. Due to a manufacturing error, the POL threads for some service valves may not meet specification, which could result in propane leaks at the POL threads.

June 29, 2022: Manchester Tank forwarded the RegO Field Advisory to its RV customers.

July-Sep. 2022: Manchester Tank reviewed its records to identify RV tanks that may have used suspect RegO service valves. On July 12, 2022, RegO issued inspection procedures for vehicles in service with suspect. Manchester Tank forwarded the inspection procedures to its RV customers. Manchester Tank reached out to NHTSA’s Manufacturer Help Desk to discuss the service valve issue. On July 15, 2022, Engineered Controls International filed a defect information report with NHTSA (22E058). Manchester Tank investigated quality checks related to the threading issue and reviewed sales records for customers that may have received suspect RegO service valves.

Sep. 23, 2022: Based on the defect information report filed by RegO, a review of production records, and defect information reports filed by more than one vehicle customer, Manchester Tank determined to pass through a defect information report to NHTSA for RV tanks equipped with RegO’s defective service valves.

Manchester Tank is not aware of any fires or injuries related to this defect.
