Default Noisy regulator

Friends have purchased a 2006 Sterling van from a dealer. The van is set up
for propane. When using high gas flow (3 burners and the oven, for instance)
the regulator in the front gas box emits a buzz. As it's screwed to the
bulkhead, the sound is transmitted into the van.

The pipe does run slightly uphill from the bottle connector to the
(extended) top of the regulator. The noise certainly doesn't happen in our
own 2007 Bailey.

Is this noise a known problem. Any suggestions? They're off to France in two
weeks.

Buy a new one or move it off the bulkhead, neither solution is expensive or
complex.

at 40 odd you say they are inexpensive, for a regulator that's pricy

Took van to dealer this morning, who diagnosed a faulty NRV in the pigtail
hose.

Workshop fitted a straight-through replacement (on warranty) and, hey
presto, problem solved!

I then drove it home and, could I get burners to light? Could I . . .! Rang
workshop and gave them an earful. They listened politely and said "Are you
sure the cooker lid is fully open?"

I checked, and was able to push it back half an inch. Again, hey presto,
everything worked! Apparently there's some sort of valve that cuts off the
gas supply unless the lid is FULLY open.

I've owned quite a few caravans. Never seen that before. Very embarrassing!

Is there a club or forum that covers these tiny cavarans, I would not part
with mine for any money.
